Ofsted recognises excellence

Posted on: March 20th 2017

IMG 9578websmallWe are delighted to be able to share the results of our recent Ofsted inspection with the Alton community. The two inspectors really did capture the essence of our school when they were with us. They were both experienced Headteachers and, as such, were clear about the strengths of our school. Their summary captures our distinctive ethos - one where all students are provided with “high quality and challenging education ... regardless of their ability or circumstances”. They could see that students are stretched and challenged, enabling them to be successful. The Inspectors were able to confirm verbally that areas of the school are Outstanding and they commented on the “caring and stimulating culture [which] encourages all pupils to do their best”.

Speaking about the inspection, Mrs Liz Wylie, Headteacher, commented “It is a great reflection on our hard work and I am pleased for our students, staff, parents and Governors who all contribute to make our school such a flourishing environment. With this up to date endorsement from Ofsted, we will continue to provide every student with an education for life.”

Our next Open Event is on 20th June, 6-9pm where we look forward to welcoming all visitors to the school. Call 01420 84545, e-mail

Presentation Evening at The Maltings
Posted on: 16/01/2018

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
