We are RECRUITING! We are taking bookings for our Primary and Secondary Teaching for Mastery Programmes, EYFS Mastering Number and all our CPD programmes. We are always looking for new schools to work with. Please find out more:


North West One Maths Hub is one of a network of 40 Maths Hubs in England, working together within the Maths Hubs Programme, which began in 2014. The programme is funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and coordinated by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM).

Professional Development

We run a series of nationally co-ordinated and accredited professional development projects for anyone involved in the teaching of maths. All CPD within the Maths Hub programme is delivered using a Work Group model devised by the NCETM. It is a unique form of professional development across each school phase, which differs from a one-off course.​

Teaching for Mastery

Deep, Secure, Long-Term, Adaptable Comprehension

The phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths. 

Mastering maths means pupils acquire a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.

Just some of the fantastic feedback we receive from our teachers

Since going into special measures in 2013, Kentmere Academy and Nursery have been working with Simon Mazumder and NW1 Maths Hub to source training and resources.  In 2018 we received outstanding from OFSTED and the teaching of mathematics was deemed a notable strength.  We value the work of NW1 Maths Hub in our school and can’t thank you enough.”

Sarah Isberg, Head teacher, Kentmere Academy and Nursery, Rochdale

The training and opportunities provided by NW1 Maths Hub have helped our school to improve our teaching of mathematics through high-quality CPD. The impact of this CPD can be seen across the school; our teachers have strong subject knowledge and we have a school culture of teachers as learners. Children love maths at our school and our end of Key Stage results are consistently in the top 10% of schools nationally.”

Phil Brooke, Head teacher, Alexandra Park Primary, Stockport

The diagnostics: assessing and addressing children’s difficulties with mathematics programme was really useful.  Precision diagnostics will help us unpick children’s misconceptions as well as understand the next steps to address those issues.  Another fantastic CPD opportunity from NW1 Maths Hub – thank you!”
