Amery Hill’s Year 11 students celebrated the end of their secondary school education with a sophisticated dinner and dance at Froyle Park, Upper Froyle. The event arrangements were led by the Student Prom Committee with the evening themed ‘A night to remember’. Talking about the event, Progress Leader, Mrs Esther Keen, commented “The students organised the event like a team of professionals! Their carefully made plans ensured the evening was perfect in every way and it is definitely one they will remember.” The evening opened with an impressive array of transport for the traditional arrival at Amery Hill School, including a horse-drawn carriage, vintage vehicles, including a RAF fire and rescue truck and a variety of sports cars.

The students looked stunning and everything was perfectly in place from the suits and the bow ties, the beautifully elegant dresses to the handbags, the heels and the tiaras! Tutors and students enjoyed a reception in the wonderful surroundings of Froyle Park before sitting down to a delicious dinner followed by the presentation of awards and speeches. The evening was rounded off by plenty of photo opportunities and dancing. What a night to remember!

Time to celebrate

Students, parents and staff at Amery Hill School are again celebrating excellent GCSE results, with students exceeding the national prediction for achieving the new top grade 9 in English and Mathematics. This year’s results saw some outstanding personal success with 23 students achieving the equivalent of 7 or more A*- A grades. Many individuals surpassed their own personal targets which is the result of the hard work, commitment and support shown by our students, staff and parents. Headteacher Mrs Elizabeth Wylie said: “We are particularly proud of how well our students have done in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science – 89% of our students achieved a good pass in English (both Language and Literature), 83% in Mathematics, and 79% achieved at least two good passes in Science. Overall, our results have seen 77% of students achieve at least five good passes including English and Mathematics, which is an impressive outcome and an improvement on last year’s excellent results. Students have performed particularly well in English and Mathematics, with 5% awarded the new top grade 9 in English, 8% in Mathematics and 5% gaining both overall. Nationally, only 2.9% of candidates have achieved this new top grade, equivalent to an A** so Amery Hill students have done incredibly well.” In particular our A*-A grade pass rates have been outstanding in Biology (39%), Chemistry (50%), Dance (50%), DT Systems Control (46%), Geography (34%), Media Studies (47%), Music (41%) and Physics (42%).View Article
