About Us

Brilliant beginnings

The Smallpeice Trust was founded in 1966 by Dr. Cosby D P Smallpeice — a brilliant engineer who invented the Smallpeice Lathe. Following his success, Dr. Smallpeice ploughed £1.6m of his personal fortune into setting up The Smallpeice Trust to give young people the support they need to bring their big ideas to life through science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Doing great things together

We want young people who are into science, technology, engineering and maths to live in a world that celebrates their passion and supports their vision for the future. That’s why we do what we do, but we couldn’t do it alone. It’s all thanks to working with like-minded organisations and the support of the UK’s top universities, institutes and corporate companies that makes it all possible.
