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. Our objective is to improve maths education for children and teenagers, by developing and increasing collaboration between mathematics education professionals, schools, colleges and universities.
The Great North Maths Hub is part of Churchill Community College and North Tyneside Learning Trust, but our work encompasses all schools and education establishments within Northumberland, Tyne & Wear. Our network presently reaches over 1500 teachers and advisors in schools throughout this area.
We offer a wide range of high quality professional development opportunities, drawing on the latest teaching strategies from around the world. Our work combines National Collaborative Projects, designed and led by the NCETM, with local schools leading the research in each region. Local Projects are also designed to address national priority areas, but are designed, delivered and evaluated locally.

As a hub, we collaborate with a wide range of enthusiastic and dedicated maths teachers and strategic partners, aiming to raise standards in mathematics and inspire a passion for the subject, for both students and teachers.
