GCSE Results

Amery Hill Exam Results 2019
Statement from the Headteacher

Amery Hill is celebrating its year on year success with another round of excellent GCSE results for its 2019 cohort. Many students have excelled and achieved beyond expectation, proving that Amery Hill continues to strive for the best in every student.

Spectacular results were achieved by many but in particular the following students should be acknowledged for their tremendous application and efforts: Ethan Aspinwall, Isobel Austin, Olly Brice, Joanna Clifford, Catherine Goldie, Catherine Groom, Jonathan Hall, Ariana Hawkins, Joshua Hedley, Annaka Herrmann, Rachel Hughes, Charlotte Knight, Emily Micklefield, Kitty Moran, Isobel Vickery, James Way, Zac West and Eleanor Wood.

Much has been said in the media about the more rigorous and content driven GCSEs and the greater pressures that our students have had to manage over the last few years. It is therefore to their credit that the results achieved have demonstrated that with high quality teaching and a caring and supportive ethos, potential can be achieved and all of our students can move on to the next stage of their learning and education with confidence, passion and an excitement for the future.

The attainment of students at Amery Hill goes from strength to strength with this projected to be within the top 20% of schools nationally. Progress in English and Maths are provisionally expected to be above the national average as well as attainment in the challenging EBacc suite of subjects, where both the number of students entered and attainment are projected to be above national outcomes. Progress this year has been particularly strong for students with higher key stage 2 outcomes, demonstrating how our challenging curriculum and nurturing ethos supports and guides our most able students to excellent academic outcomes.

As we look ahead, our priority remains to maintain and build upon the outstanding ethos that permeates throughout the school and ensuring with all the staff, that each student receives the highest quality of education. Along with all the staff and governors I would like to congratulate all our students and look forward to hearing about their many successes in the future.
