Our meetings are fun, and a place to meet like-minded Maths teachers, who want to keep fresh and current in their subject, or who want a bit of inspiration or classroom ideas and activities.

John is well-known in Swindon as both a gifted teacher and also formerly the Maths Inspector for the Swindon LA. He is now at Isambard Kingdom School as well as playing a leading role in the National ATM, being a member of the General Council of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics.
Also sharing his conference impressions will be Melios Michael, who is a regular attender of the branch and is a teacher at Nova Hreod. Melios’ enthusiasm for maths is contagious.
