NewsheaderA wealth of musical talent was on show at Amery Hill School this week, as five Year 9 bands performed to family and friends at the ‘Battle of the Bands’ event. The concert was the culmination of a year's work in partnership with Emma-Kate Bentley from the Triple T Academy based in Alton, who has been giving weekly mentoring to the eclectic mix of rock, pop and indie bands, helping each create their own distinctive sound. Mr Jules Gibson, Project Leader, thanked Emma-Kate on behalf of the band members and the school for her enthusiasm and guidance over the past year and added “The bands all intend to keep working together, with a next step for many to be writing their own material. This has been a thoroughly rewarding project for all involved, with some excellent final performances at the concert.” So, the names to look out for - Fire Door Shut, Only the Harmony, Amelia and Poppy, Dreams Don't Turn to Dust and IV.

Triple T is a vocal performance academy for boys and girls aged 9-18, based in Alton, visit the website below for more details.

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
