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.

Alton's top performing school
Posted on: 6/02/2018

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
