Amery Hill School's Year 7 thoroughly enjoyed their first residential trip, held at the PGL Activity Centre in Liddington, Wiltshire. The weekend was a great opportunity for them to get to know each other, for friendships to develop and to have fun!

Year 7 Progress Leader, Mrs Lisa Mouland, commented, "Residential trips are always a brilliant way to get to know the students. They all had such a good time, with many challenging themselves in unfamiliar situations. The students supported and encouraged each other to work through the activities and demonstrated some excellent teamwork.” 

Students had the chance to take part in a range of exciting and challenging activities, including the giant swing and the zip line. They enjoyed an afternoon canoeing on the lake and successfully navigated their way through a number of tricky problem solving activities. As the evening drew in, students proved they were equally adept on the dance floor, with some amazing dance moves on show at the disco!

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.
