Welcome To 
Archimedes NE Maths Hub

The Maths Hubs Programme brings together mathematics education professionals in a collaborative national network of 37 hubs, each locally led by an outstanding school or college, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.Archimedes NE Maths Hub is led by Carmel College, Darlington. The Maths Hub national programme continues to grow. To further develop how schools can engage with Maths Hubs, there is a greater clarification of each Maths Hub area and how it fits within the wider national picture. Our hub works to provide the best possible support for schools in Darlington, Durham, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton Local Authority Districts. We continue to work in collaboration with Great North and Yorkshire Ridings Maths Hubs to meet the needs of all schools across the region; please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are close to a border.

Participant Comments

Hear what participants in our Work Groups have to say

“Both leads (myself and the Key Stage 1 lead) are much more confident and understand where we are going. We can now talk about the vision for our school and what we need to do for our children to succeed. We have been able to observe lessons with our maths specialist and now have a good idea of what is going on in our school.”

“Working with the Maths Hub has helped to really focus on next steps and priorities and thus feed into our School Self Evaluation. The Hub has signposted lots of additional opportunities to access training, including developing leadership capacity and to be involved in specialist programmes e.g Early Years projects Create a positive culture”
