Amery Hill’s Year 11 students celebrated the end of their secondary school education with a sophisticated dinner and dance at The Barn at Bury Court, Bentley.  Everything was perfectly in place from the suits and the bow ties, the beautifully elegant dresses to the handbags, the heels and the make-up! The evening opened with an impressive array of transport for the traditional arrival at school including a vintage bus, sports cars, a campervan and roaring motorbikes. It was wonderful that so many members of the community came out to wish them well and make them feel special for the evening. Tutors (both past and present) and students enjoyed a reception in the wonderful surroundings and garden at Bury Court before sitting down to a delicious dinner followed by the presentation of awards and speeches. The evening was rounded off by plenty of photo opportunities and dancing. A fantastic night was had by all!

Alton's top performing school

It’s official.  Amery Hill School is Alton’s top performing school.  Again. The publication of the Government’s secondary school’s performance comparison tables today, has verified that this year’s excellent GCSE results, and most importantly the Progress 8 Measure*, is the best in the local area. Headteacher, Mrs Elizabeth Wylie, said: “We are extremely proud of how well our students have done this year which is the result of the hard work, commitment and support shown by our students, staff and parents. In particular, the Progress 8 Measure, places us as Alton’s top performing school, for the second year running. When Ofsted visited our school in March they commented on how we provide all students with a “high quality and challenging education ... regardless of their ability or circumstances” in a “caring and stimulating culture”. The publication of this Government data today really does endorse Ofsted’s view of our school.” Visit the DfE Performance Tables to compare schools in the local area. *Progress 8 Measure. This score shows how much progress students make between the end of Key Stage 2 (end of primary school) and the end of Key Stage 4 (GCSE), compared to students across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2. This is based on results in up to eight qualifications, which include English, maths, three English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and three other additional approved qualifications.  View Article
