It is essential for pupils to have an understanding of Mathematics as almost every part of their future life will require a grasp of number, whether this be to tell the time, check change, to use formulae or to understand nuclear physics.

At Amesbury, we create an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to the whole curriculum and wider environment beyond school. During our lessons we hope to promote positive attitudes, enjoyment, confidence and an enthusiasm for mathematics.

Years 1-3 have five one hour lessons each week which are taught by their class teacher. Year 4 also have five one hour lessons each week taught by a member of the Maths department. In Years 5-8 the children have four one hour lessons per week and they are set by ability.


Head of Department

Sandy Gibb joined Amesbury in 2008. As an Oxford Graduate (BEd) she began her teaching career in the state system before moving into Independent Education in 2010. Sandy has been Head of Maths since 2016. She has a keen interest in implementing digital technologies to enhance her teaching as well as integrating ‘Real World Problem Solving’ into the curriculum, to prepare the learners for the challenges which lie beyond Amesbury.
