Iceland Inspires

Posted on: May 10th 2017

News photoYear 10 GCSE Geography students have recently returned from a visit to Iceland, experiencing some of the country’s most famous sights: the Blue Lagoon, the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Station and Reynishverfi, famous for its black volcanic beaches and basalt columns. The combination of natural wonders and Norse culture, proved an intriguing blend which inspired students and enriched their GCSE studies.

Talking about the visit, Mr Parker, Head of Geography commented “Iceland is well known for its raw physical geography and both students and staff were captivated by the natural wonders of this incredible country.”  The Blue Lagoon and Gullfoss waterfall were clear favourites for many students with one commenting “The waterfall was breath-taking and the views were outstanding. It’s been the best trip I have ever been on.”

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
