Welcome to the BBO Hub

The Bucks, Berks and Oxon Maths Hub is one of 35 designated hubs and is based at Wycombe High School.  The Maths Hub programme is supported by the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics and funded by the DfE.  Maths Hubs bring together mathematics education professionals in a collaborative national network, each locally led by an outstanding school or college, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.  You can find out more about Maths Hubs at www.mathshubs.org.uk/

Our hub covers the following areas: 

  • Buckinghamshire –  to just north of Aylesbury (Milton Keynes and Buckingham are covered by the Enigma Hub); 
  • West Berkshire –  Reading, Windsor, Maidenhead, Slough and Bracknell Forest
  • Oxfordshire – including Bicester, Oxford and Wantage (the Banbury area is part of the Enigma Hub and West Oxfordshire is covered by the GLOW Hub)

What Maths Hubs Are Doing

Maths Hubs Projects in 2018-19

The Maths Hub network runs a series of nationally co-ordinated professional development projects for anyone involved in the teaching of maths. The emphasis is on collaborative, exploratory, evidence-based professional development and research, continuing through the whole year for substantial professional and systemic change: these are not top-down, one-off courses. 

The projects are delivered through locally-based Work Groups led by an expert, in which participants contribute to and learn from the national project. Each Maths Hub puts together its own programme of Work Groups to run locally, and many projects have Work Groups in all Maths Hubs, making them available to anyone who wants to join.

While the majority of projects are offered to any teachers, teaching assistants and practitioners who wish to join, there are some which are only in certain geographical locations, which require previous participation in a project or which do not have open recruitment.

Much of Maths Hubs’ work in 2018-19 revolves around the NCETM’s Teaching for Mastery Programme which began in 2016, and is now funded to continue well into the coming decade.  Flyers (PDF) are available to download for Early Years/Primary and Secondary/Post-16projects.
