Amery Hill School is an 11-16 secondary school with academy status set on a hill above the market town of Alton in Hampshire, England. Its Headteacher is Stephen Crabtree.

Academics[edit]

It was awarded Music College specialist school status in 2004 by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) and was rated 'a good school with many outstanding features' at the last Ofsted inspection (2012).[citation needed] Examination performance is strong at both Key Stages 3 and 4. Amery Hill School is now part of the ICT Register, a database which captures ICT and eLearning expertise in schools and learning centres across the world.

Facilities[edit]

School facilities include interactive whiteboards and data projectors in all classrooms and an artificial turf sports pitch. The school has recently been designated as 'accessible' through the provision of lifts and ramps to make all parts of the building suitable for disabled persons. Having reached the standard for recognition as a 'High Performing Secondary School', a second specialism in Mathematics is being developed.

Area Schools[edit]

The school enjoys close collaboration with nearby Alton College and Amery Hill students attend the College for some enrichment and curriculum courses. In addition the school works closely as a member of the East Hampshire 14-19 Consortium in developing Applied Diplomas for first teaching in 2009.
