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.

Developing Core Maths Pedagogy Work Group

This Work Group aims to explore and develop the links between the Mathematics required in Core Maths to its application in the Real World. Whether this is its application in specific jobs and careers or simply day-to-day life in which people don’t realise they are using Maths. Teachers will develop new approaches to hooking students in and engaging them in real life contexts and problems.
