Ofsted recognises excellence

Posted on: March 20th 2017

IMG 9578websmallWe are delighted to be able to share the results of our recent Ofsted inspection with the Alton community. The two inspectors really did capture the essence of our school when they were with us. They were both experienced Headteachers and, as such, were clear about the strengths of our school. Their summary captures our distinctive ethos - one where all students are provided with “high quality and challenging education ... regardless of their ability or circumstances”. They could see that students are stretched and challenged, enabling them to be successful. The Inspectors were able to confirm verbally that areas of the school are Outstanding and they commented on the “caring and stimulating culture [which] encourages all pupils to do their best”.

Speaking about the inspection, Mrs Liz Wylie, Headteacher, commented “It is a great reflection on our hard work and I am pleased for our students, staff, parents and Governors who all contribute to make our school such a flourishing environment. With this up to date endorsement from Ofsted, we will continue to provide every student with an education for life.”

Our next Open Event is on 20th June, 6-9pm where we look forward to welcoming all visitors to the school. Call 01420 84545, e-mail

Amery Hill Prom - sunshine, sparkles and sophistication

Amery Hill’s Year 11 students celebrated the end of their secondary school education with a sophisticated dinner and dance at Froyle Park, Upper Froyle. Everything was perfectly in place from the suits and the bow ties, the beautifully elegant dresses to the handbags, the heels and the make-up! Talking about the event, Progress Leader, Mr Owain Lewis, commented “The arrangements for the evening were led by the Student Prom Committee, who organised the event like a team of professionals! Having worked so hard over the past few months for their GCSE exams, it was lovely that the students could celebrate together. They had a fantastic evening and it is definitely one they will remember.” The evening opened with an impressive array of transport for the traditional arrival at Amery Hill School, including a fantastic display of vintage vehicles, a variety of sports cars and even a tractor, a doughnut-performing Rotax kart and an articulated lorry cab, more commonly used to haul a 44 tonne trailer! The fly past by a yellow tiger moth biplane seemed coincidental, or was it?   It was wonderful that so many members of the community came out to wish them well and make them feel special for the evening. Tutors and students enjoyed a reception in the wonderful surroundings of Froyle Park before sitting down to dinner which was followed by the presentation of awards and speeches. The evening was rounded off at Froyle Park with plenty of photo opportunities and dancing.   To view the photos from the evening click here If students would like electronic copies of their own photos please contact Mrs Rose in the ICT Department.View Article
