Harris Federation becomes a London Maths Hub

The Harris Federation has been announced by the Government as part of a new national network of ‘Maths Hubs’ which will create a new model for teaching maths.

There are 32 Maths Hubs in total and the scheme is being backed with funding from the Department for Education in order to help children and teenagers in UK schools match the standards of maths achieved in top-performing EAast Asian countries.  

We have begun working with schools across London with a clear and common purpose of developing a world class maths education.  This includes collaboration with new teachers, established teachers and subject leaders, as well as anyone wanting to focus on research and development and new forms of pupil enrichment in maths.

Jacquelyn Lomas, Harris Federation Consultant Leader for Mathematics, said:

“This project is close to our hearts because our experience is that effective collaboration is key to supporting improvements in education."

“Being a Maths Hub means we can establish a London-wide network for sharing strong teaching and learning practices, supporting better training for teachers in both pedagogy and subject knowledge in these times of rapid, but exciting curriculum reform."

“We are keen to welcome more teachers from different schools, phases, universities and maths associations to take part in the continuing development and design of the curriculum, assessment, and training program.  Working collaboratively, we will develop resources that will be made available on our Teaching School website as we invite more schools to take part in this exciting opportunity. We will continue to post information about the developments of this programme and our other ongoing projects to allow more schools a chance to engage."
