Ski Austria 2017

Posted on: April 7th 2017

NewsheaderOur skiing trip to Austria saw us arrive in the resort amidst beautiful sunshine and green meadows. Fortunately there was still plenty of snow at the top of the cable car and we enjoyed a fabulous week of skiing, snowboarding, bowling and many other activities. Our beginner group progressed quickly and we were soon able to venture off the nursery slopes to explore a couple of the other resorts in the local area. All of them were fantastic!

On our final day skiing, we spent the morning doing ski races through a timed and videoed course which was great fun. Our students received many compliments on their impeccable behaviour from hotel staff and instructors, including a letter of thanks from our coach driver, praising our students and the impeccable way that they handled the long journey home.

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
