Celebrating Excellence in MusicPosted on: January 24th 2018
Amery Hill School is delighted to have been nominated by the Hampshire Music Hub and to be awarded Music Mark membership. 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.”
