Nathan Crook

Prior to becoming a maths consultant, Nathan taught children in Years 1-6 across three Oxfordshire primary schools, including those in both urban and rural settings. During this time, he qualified as a Maths Specialist Teacher (MaST). It consequently led to him becoming part of the National College for Teaching and Leadership’s ‘small schools making an impact’ programme.

Driven by his passion for helping to ensure that all children access mathematics learning to the full, Nathan has more recently worked as an NCETM accredited independent maths consultant to support schools across the country in delivering high quality teaching and learning. As well as providing training, he continues to work alongside classes and groups of children to explore how they learn best.

Nathan also believes in the power of mentoring and coaching, around which he has refined his skills whilst working to complete the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) programme. He now provides leadership training to support schools with growing capacity.

In addition to his day job, Nathan volunteers as a school Governor and works on the Executive of the National Association of Mathematics Advisers, which develops his understanding about the national mathematics landscape.
