We want to help Secondary maths teachers network; to share ideas, to talk about current issues in education and classrooms, to work collaboratively on interesting projects and to share guidance and offer support to each other. The Secondary maths panel is led by Craig Barton

I qualified as a secondary maths teacher in 2008 and currently work at an 11-18 comprehensive in Bolton. In 2010, I took a year off work to travel, but I'm now back in the classroom and once again delivering Pythagoras' Theorem to a group of 14 year olds like it's the most important thing they're ever likely to learn.
