Top Performing Hampshire School

Posted on: October 21st 2019

Following the publication of the Government’s secondary schools’ performance comparison tables, Amery Hill School is celebrating another year of academic success, with students exceeding national progress expectations in the Progress 8 measure for the third consecutive year.

Attainment for students is estimated to be within the top 20% of schools nationally this year, with high ability students making better progress than national expectations and the best progress for this group in the school since the Progress 8 measure was introduced.  15% of students achieved at least one Grade 9, a grade deemed to be more challenging than an A*, and 52% of students achieved at least one Grade 9-7 across their chosen GCSE courses. In addition, in the critical core subjects, 30% of students achieved a Grade 7 or higher in their English GCSE with success mirrored in Maths where 28% of students achieved this outcome. Equal success was seen at 9-4 (standard pass) with 82% and 80% of students achieving this important milestone in English and Maths respectively.

“These results demonstrate the outstanding quality of education that is being delivered day in and day out at Amery Hill. Students of all abilities make excellent individual progress with more post-16 education choices as a result. The publishing of the Government’s secondary schools’ performance comparison tables places Amery Hill School as one of the top performing schools in Hampshire.” Mr Mann, Headteacher.

Amery Hill School backs campaign #Laptops2Schools

Amery Hill School backs campaign #Laptops2Schools

“Out of a disaster we can all do something to ensure students don’t suffer unnecessarily.” Those were the words of Ms Lindsey Parslow, chief executive of Business2Schools, which has this week launched a campaign to benefit school children and parents affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The aim of the Laptops2Schools initiative is to get businesses to donate laptops that school children can take home if the schools close or pupils have to self-isolate. Ms Parslow said: “If families have to self-isolate children will need to log into their school’s intranet to complete their lessons and homework. “Most families do not have enough computers for everyone in a household to have access at the same time. Priority will be given to the people in the family that are working. “This will be disastrous for education. Schools are so short of laptops anyway. So if businesses could help us it will mean teachers and children at home can have a laptop sent to them if they need it.” Alton based secondary school Amery Hill is supporting the campaign, having worked successfully with Business2Schools in the past. Headteacher, Mr Steve Mann said, “Self-isolation and imminent school closures are presenting parents, students and the education sector as a whole with unprecedented challenges.  Most schools are not in the position where they can provide spare laptops to students attempting to study remotely and the concern is that students from poorer families might become even more disadvantaged. Any help that businesses can provide to support this initiative will have a significant impact on the education of our young people.” Ms Parslow added: “If businesses can help by donating or by reaching out on social media we can get this off the ground very quickly. Time is not on our side if schools close.” So far, London-based company EFG Private Bank and ESRI UK, in Aylesbury, have donated £6,000 and 57 laptops respectively. Business2Schools is raising funds to afford hard drives and chargers, in case they do not come with the laptops. To donate, visit  Just Giving - click hereView Article
