Bugsy Malone was Amery Hill School's latest whole school drama production, which wowed audiences over four nights in a fully booked school hall. Live music, performed by students and lead by Musical Director Ms Worwood, complemented brilliant performances from an enthusiastic cast, made up from students in all year groups. Fat Sam and Dandy Dan's conflict brought many a splurge-gun ending to a number of vibrant characters throughout the comic and energetic show.  

Mr Gibbs, Head of Drama and Production Director, commented, "This show has been an absolute joy to direct and put together. With such a talented and committed group of students, the characters have really been brought to life with some outstanding vocal and acting performances.”

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
