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.

It also clearly indicates that students of all abilities make excellent individual progress and achieve their personal goals. With the outstanding pastoral care and support that Amery Hill provides to all of its students, we are delighted that our school can stand toe to toe with the top performing schools in Hampshire. Talking about this achievement, Headteacher, Mr Mann commented, “Never has our motto of Care, Progress and Opportunity been more truly reflected and I, along with all the staff and governors, look forward to continuing this excellent journey and providing outstanding education for Alton and its surrounding community.” For more information and to compare these results with other schools, the Government’s secondary schools’ performance comparison tables can be accessed via the following link: https://www.gov.uk/school-performance-tables *Progress 8 Score.
