Amery Hill School - Education for life

‘The caring and stimulating culture you have created encourages all pupils to do their best’
(OFSTED Feb. 2017)

Our Vision:

Amery Hill School is a welcoming and supportive learning community where all students are encouraged to become independent, creative, active and resilient learners with the empathy to respond responsibly and morally to the challenges of this ever-changing world.

Delivering our vision, for every child, every day

We aim for academic excellence and achievement for all of our students. We inspire and develop a genuine love of learning through the dedication of our staff in creating an ambitious educational environment that is exciting and accessible to all. This is supported by a wide range of extra-curricular activities and enrichment opportunities for students to explore and deepen their own interests. When our students leave Amery Hill they are excited about the opportunities for further learning, direct their own educational journey and embrace life’s lessons with resilience and creativity.

We treat our students as individuals. We work hard to identify and enhance each student’s strengths, focussing attention on personal development so that their time at Amery Hill is not just about a journey to academic success but also one of self-understanding. Our aim is that on leaving Amery Hill our students can think, learn and cope independently so that they have the confidence to seize life’s opportunities and make a real contribution to the communities where they live and work.

We create a culture that is happy, safe and supportive, to enable our students to be both confident in expressing their own individuality whilst also having the capacity to respect, foster and embrace new ideas and principles: to be willing to accept feelings, habits and beliefs that are different from their own.
