Oxford University Visit

Posted on: May 10th 2017

P1010001smlA group of Year 10 students have recently visited Hertford College, University of Oxford, accompanied by Mr Eacott and Mrs Rumming who both studied for their under-graduate degrees at the College.  The aim of the day was to find out about life as a student at one of the world's top universities.

The day started with an 'Oxford tutorial' taken by a research fellow in English about the changes in the different versions of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, which included a debate about the impact of the changes between the different editions and a discussion of some of the reasons behind these changes.

After lunch, the students were treated to a tour of Hertford which, as well as posing for the obligatory photograph underneath the 'Bridge of Sighs', allowed students the opportunity to walk over the bridge as well - a luxury usually reserved for members of the College. The visit finished with a discussion of the application / interview process, giving the students something to aspire towards. The only disappointment during the day was that, unfortunately, Simpkin the college cat declined the opportunity to meet the students.  We hope that he will be more accommodating when we visit again!

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
