NewsheaderA wealth of musical talent was on show at Amery Hill School this week, as five Year 9 bands performed to family and friends at the ‘Battle of the Bands’ event. The concert was the culmination of a year's work in partnership with Emma-Kate Bentley from the Triple T Academy based in Alton, who has been giving weekly mentoring to the eclectic mix of rock, pop and indie bands, helping each create their own distinctive sound. Mr Jules Gibson, Project Leader, thanked Emma-Kate on behalf of the band members and the school for her enthusiasm and guidance over the past year and added “The bands all intend to keep working together, with a next step for many to be writing their own material. This has been a thoroughly rewarding project for all involved, with some excellent final performances at the concert.” So, the names to look out for - Fire Door Shut, Only the Harmony, Amelia and Poppy, Dreams Don't Turn to Dust and IV.

Triple T is a vocal performance academy for boys and girls aged 9-18, based in Alton, visit the website below for more details.

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
