Robert Wilne - Mathematics

I have more than 20 years’ experience teaching mathematics in primary and secondary phases: indeed, I have on the same day taught De Moivre’s Theorem to Y13 and number bonds to Y1! As Director for Secondary of the NCETM 2014-16, I had the wonderful opportunity and privilege to co-lead the England-Shanghai Teaching for Mastery teacher exchanges and research projects, and to support Maths Hubs as they started to develop teaching for mastery in their schools. In 2016 I returned to classroom teaching to practice what I’d been preaching, in KS2 and KS3 in particular.

As Deputy Director (Maths) for the Atlas Teaching School Partnership, I co-lead the development of teaching and learning in Mathematics in the secondaries in the Haberdashers' Aske's Federation. I contribute to Atlas’ work in Lewisham by supporting specific schools and also providing a range of subject knowledge and pedagogy practice professional development. In parallel, I have an advisory role with Oxford University Press: I am Series Editor and UK Teaching Consultant for two brand new programmes, one for primary and one for KS3, of materials, resources and CPD.

Dr Sam Bowen - Science

Combining the 15 years’ experience of teaching secondary science, with working with the Atlas Teaching School Alliance in my role as Deputy Director, I have been fortunate enough to learn from so many educators in a wide range of schools and sectors.  These experiences have enabled me to lead on a number areas as part of my role as Deputy Director (Science).  The development of teaching and learning of science across the Haberdashers' Aske's Federation has been a pivotal responsibility.  In the role I have in and beyond the Borough of Lewisham, I support specific and schools to analyse data, support in developing outstanding classroom practice and ascertain the strengths and areas of development within their curriculum offer.  In addition, I offer professional development on a range of science specific subjects including KS2 to KS3 transition and developing science leaders.  Another fulfilling part of my position is to oversee a number of trainee teachers across the South East region, as well as offering support to teachers in their first years of teaching.
