Young musicians on tour to Holland

Posted on: July 10th 2016

Zandvoort City Hall 1headerStudents from Amery Hill School have recently returned from a successful tour to Holland, where they impressed locals and visitors with their musical performances and concerts.

Musicians from the school’s ensembles accompanied the Concert Band and Orchestra to Noordwijk, known for its beaches and bulb fields. Students and staff performed in a number of different locations, including Delft Market Square, Noordwijk seafront and Zandvoort.

In between concerts, the group had the chance to explore Amsterdam, where they enjoyed a cruise on the canal and visited Zaanse Schans where the iconic images of Holland – cheese, clogs and windmills – are wholeheartedly embraced. Students enjoyed discovering the wooden houses and windmills of the old-world village, as well as visiting what many of the students described as “the best pancake house in the world!”

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
