Karen Hand, Headteacher at Stopsley High School, said: “We aren’t just committed to teaching our students maths, but also immersing them in the full potential of where a strong knowledge and skillset can take them.

"By working in partnership with the Maths Hub we are thrilled to play a role in instilling a love of Maths in students across our community.”

Muhammad Ali, head of mathematics at Stopsley High School, said: "During the last year, the Mathematics Department has been working collaboratively with the Enigma Maths Hub.

"This has allowed students to obtain a deeper understanding of key mathematical concepts by challenging mathematical thinking, developing fluency, embedding variation theory into lessons and through the use of multiple representations.”

He added: “One example is our use of a Bar Model. Staff received continued professional development to ensure they were confident to deliver Bar Modelling to students and we have then embedded this with our year eight cohort.

"Students can understand and can now explain the steps they are using to solve linear equations. We will now begin to implement Bar Modelling with other year groups and in other topics."
