Amery Hill’s Year 11 students recently celebrated the end of their secondary school education at PromFest 2021 with an evening of enjoyable entertainment. Having endured a torrid couple of years with so many restrictions and disruption, it was the celebration they all deserved.

Talking about the Class of 2021, Mr Stephen Mann, Headteacher, commented, “There are some key moments in a school year which create a variety of emotions for all concerned and as we said our goodbyes to Orange Year, this was one such occasion. The cohort of 2021 have had to face far too many disruptions and uncertainties around their education yet we could not feel any prouder in the way they have risen to each challenge and found an inner strength and resilience. They have been a credit to the school and their families and it was a pleasure to welcome them back to Amery Hill for PromFest 2021 and to see them have such a great evening. We wish them every success and happiness for the future.”

Unfortunately the students’ original prom at Northbrook House Hotel was a casualty of the Governments’ decision to defer the lifting of restrictions until 19th July and with availability at the hotel limited, the decision was taken to bring the end of year celebration back in house.

Progress Leader, Mr Chris Board, added “The arrangements for the evening were led by a small committee with support from parents, students and local businesses helping to organise the event in record time! Our thanks to Alton House Hotel for the loan of their red carpet, Excel FSE for their very generous donation, Sainsbury’s for supplying ingredients to make 200 mocktails for the students on arrival and Daisy Osgood and team for their decorating skills; how the school was transformed!”

Mr Board added, “It was lovely that the students could celebrate together; they had a fantastic evening, enjoying entertainment from a professional magician and excellent disco and it is definitely one they will remember.”

GCSE Summer 2021 Press Release

Statement from the Headteacher, Mr Stephen Mann The class of 2021, like many thousands of students up and down the country, have had to endure a torrid couple of years with so much uncertainty and disruption to their learning.  However, it has been a real pleasure for the staff at Amery Hill School to celebrate the individual achievements of each and every student as they received their GCSE results. Throughout the last eighteen months Amery Hill’s students have been a credit to their school and families in the way they have continued to work tirelessly on their studies, even when faced with so many obstacles being thrown at them without warning.  Whilst the media and political narrative has been less than supportive around the achievements of this group of students, we believe these results will show a much truer reflection of a student’s aptitude and understanding of their subjects.  The variety of assessment opportunities students have been given has allowed them to showcase their very best and not be reliant on a one off, all or nothing examination.  These unprecedented challenges have brought out the very best qualities in our students and their results are a tribute to not only their dedication, but the determination, empathy and care of all of our staff at Amery Hill School who have supported, enthused and when required carried them every step of the way. Our congratulations to all of our students and a special mention to our top performers including Monty Austin, Karina Barwick, Bear Crawford, Hannah Davies, Esme Doyle, Maia Fuller, Isobel Horton, Lewis Kelley, Izzy Malatesta, Margaux Meakin, Hannah Swain and Beatrice Vickery. A number of students have made outstanding progress and we celebrate their achievements: Charlie Baker, Erika Booth, Jessica Clarke, Eleanor Ford, Isobel Goldie, Fred Harris, Sophie Housley, Grace Hunter, Anna Munckton, Cedrick Ortega, Toby Phillips and Zoe Swan. We wish all our students every success, health and happiness for the future - this is your time, now go out there and take it!View Article
