Posted on: August 25th 2016

Exams News headerWe are delighted with the results achieved by our students this year – a true reflection of the hard work and effort put in by both the students and the staff that have worked alongside them.  We are particularly pleased with the rise in the number of students who obtained over 5 A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics, which has risen by 10% to 74%.  Both our English and Mathematics departments exceeded last year’s results with 83% of students passing their English and 80% awarded a pass grade in Mathematics.

In line with the new government expectations and measures, we have also seen a very healthy rise in the number of students achieving the EBacc suite of qualifications, with 40% of students gaining an A*-C pass in English, Mathematics, Science, a Humanities subject and a Foreign Language.

Talking about this year’s exam success Mrs Elizabeth Wylie, Headteacher, commented “I would like to congratulate all of our students on their success. There are so many individuals who have surpassed their targets and there have been some outstanding personal achievements.  I wish them all good luck in their future endeavours.”

Particularly outstanding results were achieved by Alexandra Judkins and Joanna Vines who secured 12 GCSEs passes all at A* grade.  Also, Seren Irwin achieved 10 A*, 1 A and 1 B grade and Dan Stoller 9 A* and 3 A grades.

Amery Hill students turn reporters for the day

Amery Hill School hosted its fourth annual BBC School Report event this month, with 30 students experiencing what it is like to be a journalist for the day. The students worked in small groups and had the chance to research some interesting topics as well as learn the techniques of constructing and conducting a good interview. The reports covered a variety of topics, from the serious issues of a lack of diversity in the media and stereotypes about specific groups of people, to a more humorous representation of Donald Trump and his leadership style.  Speaking about the day, student reporter Alisha Frost said “For the fourth year in a row, this exciting day was planned and led by Mrs Winch, Head of Media Studies. To give us a real feel for what it would be like to work for a newspaper, live BBC news reports were actively displayed during the time, adding to the experience.” Students had the chance to develop their journalism skills, carrying out research, interviews and filming during the course of the day. Alisha added, “It was a fun day filled with exciting experiences for all!  On a personal note, I feel privileged to have taken part in this amazing opportunity for three years in a row and hope it continues for many more years to come.” Many of the students are core members of the school’s reporting team and have been instrumental in launching the student newspaper, ‘The Amery Quill’. We are looking forward to the next edition of their thought-provoking newspaper which will feature their articles and interviews from the BBC School Report Day.
