'Doing our Thing' for 'Children in Need'

Posted on: November 17th 2017

Newsheader cnAmery Hill School has got behind the BBC’s ‘Children in Need’ appeal in a big way this year, helping to make a positive difference to thousands of young lives in the UK.  Students arranged a variety of events and activities, fuelling a fun-packed day for their peers and staff; the Year 9 bake sale was the biggest fundraising activity, while the raffle, rap challenge, penalty shoot-out, sponsored silence, face painting and photo booth were all popular activities. The staff vs student netball match provided a thrilling climax to the day, with a spirited student team raising their game to outclass the teachers – the first time they have won in the history of the competition!

The total raised so far is over £1300, with money still being donated. A massive ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported our fundraising efforts.

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.
