Matrix Maths Hub

The Maths Hubs programme is Department for Education funded and led by the NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics). We bring together mathematics education professionals in a collaborative national network of 40 Hubs each locally led by an outstanding school or college, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.

The Matrix Maths Hub supports schools and colleges to achieve excellence in mathematics education from Early Years to post-16. We are based in Bishop’s Stortford at The Hertfordshire and Essex High School.

Areas covered:

  • The Matrix Maths Hub covers Harlow and the whole of Hertfordshire.
  • Braintree, Chelmsford, Epping Forest and Uttlesford are covered by the Venn Essex Maths Hub.

Matrix Maths Hub 'Work Groups' 

The vast majority of the work that Maths Hubs support is through a ‘Work Group’ model. This model has been reached over many years of good research and collaborative thinking in order to achieve the best impact for students.
