CODE Maths Hub is one of 40 hubs that cover the whole of England.

The core purpose of the hub is to help schools and colleges lead improvement in mathematics education across the region. We seek to harness all the maths leadership and expertise within the area, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.

CODE Maths Hub is one of a network of 37 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). Find out more about the programme at mathshubs.org.uk.

CODE Catch-Up Christmas 2020

CODE Catch-Up Christmas 2020

All of us here at CODE hope that you had as good a summer break as you could during these strange and challenging times. As we start the new academic year we continue to be as passionate as ever about supporting mathematics for young people in our area. We’ve modified some of our planned activity which will mean that initially a lot of our work will take place online. We hope, if the situation surrounding COVID allows, that we will be able to resume face-to-face sessions late in the Spring or Summer term.

Wow – what a strange and busy year it has been! So much has happened which we couldn’t have anticipated and during these exceptionally challenging circumstances some of our activity has inevitably had to be changed and adapted. Having said this, it is testament to everyone involved in the CODE hub and their desire to improve teaching and learning in mathematics for all young people that we have continued to offer a programme of support and development. Thank you.
