    Andy Raymer, Headteacher Matthew Moss High School
  • Liz inspires young people in maths without a doubt. She has the ability to teach ‘hard to teach’ kids and is always seeking ways to improve progress and makes maths a subject that young people want to buy into.

    Eileen Sheerin, Headteacher Ashcroft School, Cheadle
  • Liz has a keen curiosity and a passion for learning.  She is always looking to deepen her knowledge, setting herself very high standards and has a real talent for helping others to do the same, developing effective teams and individuals. I regard myself as very fortunate to have worked with a Maths educator of the calibre of Liz Henning.

    Andy Raymer, Headteacher Matthew Moss High School
  • I am very pleased to have received support from  Liz this year with regards to developing mathematics leadership and management here at The Grange School. Her mathematics teaching & learning, curriculum and assessment knowledge has been a significant boost to the faculty  and has helped to improve both teacher practice and student outcomes. I would fully recommend her to other schools.

    Rob Downey, Deputy Headteacher The Grange High School, Runcorn
  • I met Liz when she came to work with us at a school in Liverpool with a leaderless maths department.  Liz was very proactive and we soon had staffing well managed, well planned and making real progress with and for the pupils.  She is excellent at developing staff and was a popular co-teacher amongst the pupils as she was able to put all their learning into context for them.  As a result of the excellent work she did up in Liverpool, I have asked Liz to come down to my new school to work with both my primary and secondary teams to take our maths departments to outstanding.  

    Deb Garfield, Principal Aspire Academy (Harlow)
  • Liz spent one day a week in school for a half term providing support in class working with the pupils as well as support out of class developing a topic based scheme of work. Liz provided me with a range of ideas and resources that made maths engaging and differentiation simple. The topic based approach was a real hit for the pupils giving them context to their learning and allowing them to understand the links between maths and everyday life.

    Heather Boyle, Head of Mathematics Cumberland School, Lancs
  • Liz Henning was an inspiration showing us how open ended tasks can suit all abilities, even stretching the most able. Through her use of questioning we were able to see how we could develop problem solving activities throughout the whole school from EYFS all the way to our higher ability pupils in Year 6.
