This is in recognition of our commitment to providing numerous outstanding enrichment opportunities in music, as well as excellent music provision in the curriculum. The School has commanded an unrivalled reputation for excellence in music for many years, so this professional recognition is being celebrated by Curriculum Leader, Ms Sam Worwood and all involved with the performing arts at Amery Hill School.

Music Mark is an UK Association for Music Education that works on behalf of its members to enable high quality music education for all children and young people by influencing, supporting and connecting - a vision shared by leaders at Amery Hill School. It is supported by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

Speaking about the nomination, Ms Worwood said, “We are delighted to become Members of Music Mark, which follows our success in the Hampshire Chairman’s Year of Music Awards in Summer 2017. Both organisations have recognised the breadth and quality of opportunities that we offer our students at Amery Hill School and those extended to our local primary schools as well.”

In her letter congratulating the school, Bridget Whyte, Chief Executive of Music Mark, commented, “We would firstly like to thank you for all the hard work you and your colleagues do to ensure that pupils at your school are able to access and engage with a high-quality music education. Your dedication to offering and delivering a broad and balanced curriculum is both welcomed and celebrated.”

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
