The Great North Maths Hub was set up in 2014 as part of a national programme funded by the Department for Education and is coordinated by the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM)
The Maths Hub programme, backed by funding from the DfE, has selected 35 school-based hubs across the country.
