Maths Hub

The structure of support for maths education in England is changing. Thirty-five  Maths Hubs have been established across England, each led by an outstanding school, college or pair of institutions, with a record of excellent achievement in mathematics, but each also in partnership with neighbouring schools and colleges, universities, and other organisations, maths experts and employers. Loreto Teaching School Alliance is working with Ashton on Mersey Teaching School in this important work.

This new initiative is designed to build on the excellent practice and achievement that already exists widely - but not universally - across the school and college system. It is being funded by the DfE and co-ordinated by the NCETM. The Maths Hubs will provide the strategic local leadership to ensure all schools receive the tailored maths education support they need. It is a new way of harnessing all maths teaching expertise within an area, to spread excellent practice even more widely, for the benefit of all pupils and students.

As part of the North West 2 Maths Hub, Loreto, working with Winstanley College, is leading the work on Post 16 Maths. We are running A level training sessions for teachers new to the role and for those who wish to refresh their knowledge. We also run ‘A level and beyond’ sessions for Sixth Form students who are considering a Maths related degree. Along with Winstanley we run a Maths Challege Premiership; a problem solving competition for Year 9 students, along with many other Maths related activities.
