Great North Maths Hub

About Us

The Great North Maths Hub is part of a national collaborative network of 40 Maths Hubs funded by the Department of Education and coordinated by the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). Each Maths Hub is locally led by an outstanding school or college, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.

Established in 2014, by the North Tyneside Learning Trust, and led by Churchill Community College, the Great North Maths Hub is also supported by a Strategic Board whose key role is to provide strategic advice, challenge and support to the Maths Hub leadership.

At the Great North Maths Hub, we work with all schools and education establishments within Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland, our vision is to encourage and support collaboration between schools, colleges and other settings: enabling teachers and educational professionals to work and learn together, developing and improving mathematics teaching, learning and leadership.

We will:

  • focus on pedagogy, learning from effective practice and research.
  • work to make a difference.
  • work collaboratively and inclusively.

What We Do

As a hub, we collaborate with a wide range of enthusiastic and dedicated maths professionals and strategic partners, working together to offer a wide range of high quality, fully funded and sustainable professional development programmes for maths teachers and teaching assistants.

Our aim is to develop and spread excellent practice, inspiring a passion for mathematics, in both students and teachers.

The benefits for schools and colleges engaging with a Maths Hub include:

  • Access to free professional development programmes
  • Up-to-date information about all local maths education activities
  • Participation in a network of local leaders of maths education (LLMEs).

Schools and teachers can choose from several types of programme, each with a focus on collaborative, evidence-based professional development. The programmes offer schools and teachers in all phases the chance to engage in CPD with colleagues from other schools over an extended period, and are led by a locally based expert.
