Voice in a Million 2016

Posted on: March 17th 2016

Img 1418Following their successful audition earlier this term, 47 members of the Amery Hill School choir performed at Wembley Arena as part of the mass choir event ‘Voice in a Million’.  More than eighty schools auditioned for a place on the main stage so it was fantastic that the Amery Hill choir’s talent and hard work was recognised; they shared the main stage with just three other school choirs. With guest performers Bars and Melody and Callum Scott, of Britain’s got Talent fame, the choir thoroughly enjoyed the event. Talking about the experience Mrs Alison Lee, Assistant Headteacher, commented "The choir have conscientiously attended rehearsals for many weeks to prepare for this event; they had a fantastic day and their evening performance was truly memorable.  Well done to everyone involved.”

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
