Top Performing Hampshire SchoolPosted 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.
