Sarah is lead of one of only four Maths Hubs designated across the North West. The Maths Hubs programme brings together mathematics education professionals in a collaborative national network of 35 hubs, each locally led by an outstanding school or college. Maths Hubs harness all maths leadership and expertise within an area, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.
As The Dean Trust Maths Strategy Lead, Sarah was a Deputy Headteacher in a Blackpool primary school having trained as a Mastery Specialist with the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM).
Prior to this Sarah gained NCETM Lead Professional status for both Primary and Secondary strands and trained with Edge Hill University as a Maths Specialist Teacher, completing the qualification to Masters-level. As part of her work as a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) and as an ex-Local Authority Maths Specialist Consultant, Sarah has had the opportunity to support colleagues in a range of settings and is very much looking forward to building on this work within the Trust.
