Enigma Maths Hub has a vision for maths education where we believe that all pupils deserve the opportunity to access and master a high-quality mathematics curriculum that is engaging, challenging and innovative.   

We collaborate through our local network of teachers, leaders and maths professionals to nurture and harness leading national and international researchbased practice for our maths teachers. 


Enigma Essence Toolkit

The essence toolkit highlights the essence of primary and secondary mathematics including relevant assessment material and supporting classroom resources.

It is designed to help schools capture the essence of maths learning across phases in maths education which will aid transition and progression across phases.  Access the site here.  It is best viewed on Chrome.

Enigma Maths Hub is one of a network of 40 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. ​
Teaching for Mastery features prominently in the professional development opportunities with teachers, TA’s, schools and maths departments.  We also provide a rich mix of other projects offering extended collaborative CPD activities across Early Years, Primary, KS3, GCSE and Post 16.
Enigma Maths Hub provide free and funded leadership and professional development activities across Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Luton and Aylesbury Vale.

All these people teaching in state-funded schools can access free or funded support from their Maths Hub.

Maths Hubs Programme 2020/2023 Strategic Priorities

  • Embed teaching for mastery approaches in primary schools so that all pupils develop the deep knowledge and  understanding they need to be fully prepared for the secondary mathematics curriculum. 
  • Develop and begin to embed teaching for mastery in secondary schools, while also supporting schools and colleges to address the challenges of teaching GCSE Mathematics, so that all pupils are prepared for progression to post-16 education. 

  • Provide support for participating schools to implement teaching for mastery with fidelity, consistency and to a high quality encouraging the effective use of high quality resources. 

  • Ensure the training and effective development of local leaders of maths education through national programmes and local professional communities.

  • Develop the knowledge and practice of Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners to ensure that all children develop a secure foundation in mathematics so that they are ready for teaching for mastery in Key Stage 1. 

  • Support the effective recruitment, preparation and development of new teachers of mathematics and other mathematics classroom practitioners, working in partnership with Initial Teacher Training (ITT), Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE), and other, providers, whenever possible.

    “I really enjoyed the Enigma Mastery sessions on the PGCE course, especially teaching with procedural variation because it helps students to make connections between problems and develop Mathematical thinking.”

    Sergio Balaguer Ferri
    PGCE Trainee
  • PGCE

    “Jayne took us through how to use procedural variation to help build students conceptual understanding before using this idea with the questions to help develop their procedural fluency; you’re encouraged to think about how your questions build depth over difficulty.”

    Mark Tate
    PGCE Trainee
  • University of Bedfordshire

    “It’s been a great opportunity for the Beds Secondary PGCE trainees to have some dedicated time, led by an expert from Enigma Maths, to focus on the concepts of Mastery more.  The sessions were very interactive and full of activities for the trainees to take back to the classroom!”
