Who can take part?

The programme is for teachers leading change in a school or group of schools other than their own, and will benefit those who have previous experience of developing leadership capacity in schools/groups of schools or who are new to the role.

What is the cost?

The School Development Lead Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participants and their schools. Funding covers provision of the three face-to-face days. Travel costs will also be funded.

About The Venn Essex Maths Hub

The Venn Essex Maths Hub was set up in 2020 as part of the expansion of a national collaborative network of 40 Maths Hubs funded by the Department of Education and coordinated by the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). Venn Essex Maths Hub is led by St Thomas More’s Catholic Primary School, an outstanding school in Colchester. The hub works across the whole of Essex (except Harlow) Southend and Thurrock. 

For more information:


The Lead School for Venn Essex Maths Hub is St Thomas More’s in Colchester part of the Rosary trust. The Maths hub is based at St Thomas More’s school, Priory Street, Colchester, Essex, CO1 2QB.

Each Maths Hub is a partnership, led locally by a school or college. The Lead School identifies strategic partners, who help plan and evaluate the hub’s work, and operational partners, who help carry out the hub’s work. So the hub is not just the Lead School or college – instead it is more like a maths leadership network involving schools, colleges and other organisations with maths education expertise from across the hub’s area.

Professional development provided by the hub is not the same as that offered by the Lead School. Some of, but not necessarily all, the hub’s leadership team will be based at the Lead School. Some of, but by no means all, the professional development offered by the hub will take place at the Lead School. Most of the Work Groups will take place at schools covering the whole hub area, so your nearest Work Group will be local to you.
