Amery Hill Exam Results 2018

Amery Hill is celebrating its year on year success with another round of excellent GCSE results for its 2018 cohort. Many students have excelled and achieved beyond expectation, proving that Amery Hill strives for the best in every student.

The whole Amery Hill community is delighted and exceptionally proud of all of our students, with particular mention of Eleanor Austin, Marcie Crawford, Oliver Isaac, Sam Seymour, Lauren Swain and Ben Williams, all of whom achieved eight or more Level 8s and 9s, placing them within the top 3% of the best achievers nationally.  Over 20 students secured at least seven Level 7-9s which is an outstanding achievement.

Head Teacher, Stephen Mann, said ‘I am absolutely delighted that Amery Hill has yet again achieved another excellent set of GCSE results.  Even though this year saw the first set of new more rigorous and demanding GCSE exams for many subjects, the results show that the level of commitment and hard work shown by students and their teachers has culminated in them all having more choices and opportunities as they move into post 16 education.

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.’

Following the publication of the Government’s secondary schools’ performance comparison tables, Amery Hill School has been ranked within the top 20 highest performing schools in Hampshire for the second consecutive year. Our Progress 8* score of 0.12 (up from 0.08 in 2017) demonstrates the outstanding quality of education that is being delivered day in and day out at Amery Hill.
