Celebrating Excellence in Music

Amery Hill School is delighted to have been nominated by the Hampshire Music Hub and to be awarded Music Mark membership. This is in recognition of our commitment to providing numerous outstanding enrichment opportunities in music, as well as excellent music provision in the curriculum. The School has commanded an unrivalled reputation for excellence in music for many years, so this professional recognition is being celebrated by Curriculum Leader, Ms Sam Worwood and all involved with the performing arts at Amery Hill School. Music Mark is an UK Association for Music Education that works on behalf of its members to enable high quality music education for all children and young people by influencing, supporting and connecting - a vision shared by leaders at Amery Hill School. It is supported by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). Speaking about the nomination, Ms Worwood said, “We are delighted to become Members of Music Mark, which follows our success in the Hampshire Chairman’s Year of Music Awards in Summer 2017. Both organisations have recognised the breadth and quality of opportunities that we offer our students at Amery Hill School and those extended to our local primary schools as well.” In her letter congratulating the school, Bridget Whyte, Chief Executive of Music Mark, commented, “We would firstly like to thank you for all the hard work you and your colleagues do to ensure that pupils at your school are able to access and engage with a high-quality music education. Your dedication to offering and delivering a broad and balanced curriculum is both welcomed and celebrated.” Head Teacher, Mrs Elizabeth Wylie, and students receive the awards for achievement, View Article

Presentation Evening at The Maltings

It was lovely to welcome so many former students to the Alton Maltings for last year’s Presentation Evening and to hear about their current studies and ambitions for the future.  Our thanks to the Amery Hill Association for kindly providing the  refreshments for the evening and for donating all the Award Prizes. Ms Keen introduced students who were presented with their certificates and special Subject Achievement Awards were introduced by Heads of Department. Effort, contribution and achievement were celebrated throughout the evening. A massive thank you to everyone who supported the event, including those who donated to the retiring collection. A fabulous £197.85 was raised for ‘Make a Wish Foundation’, a charity this year group have supported throughout their time at Amery Hill School.  We look forward to hearing about this year groups’ progress in future years and wish them every success.  Award  Recipient  Art  Rebecca Gordon  D & T: Electronics & Control Systems Kyle Barber  D & T: Resistant Materials Phoebe Neville  D & T: Food Technology Gemma Elliott  Drama Jamie Walker  English Dylan Brown & Eliza Gange  Geography Gemma Elliott  History Ed King  Computing Monty Moran  ICT CiDA Jo Pasfield  Additional Maths Monty Moran  Maths Freya Cannings  Media Studies Alisha Frost  Creative Digital Media Production Ben Walker  MFL: French Lucy Bayliss  MFL: German Alf Hamer  MFL: Spanish Siriol Whomsley  Music Charlie Bray  PE Paloma Sims  Religious Studies Asher Smart  Science: Biology Giles Hartley  Science: Chemistry Molly Bennett  Science: Physics Francesco Tesolin  Health & Social Care Bria Ferne  Outstanding Attendance Megan Ameer-Beg & Katrina Cave  Head Girl Lucy Bayliss  Head Boy Giles Hartley  Progress Leader Prize Shannon Bulbeck  Governors' Prize Dylan Brown  View Article
