Welcome to Arts & Media School Islington blog 2020-2021 where, along with our News Page, we keep you up to date with all the fascinating events that are taking place each week at our school.
During the 2020-2021 school year, AMSI followed the government guidance and went into lockdowns and enforced restrictions on travel due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, our students rose to the challenge of home learning. We have compiled some of the great work produced by the students during this time.
UKMT (UK Maths test)
This year, nationally, 272,000 students took the UKMT (UK Maths test) in which the top 25% reached the Gold UKMT award.
We had quite a number of AMSI students achieving the silver award but we’re delighted that Ayman of year 7 qualified for the Gold Award achieving an incredible 93/100. This puts him in the top 10% of the UK population and will now progress to the UKMT Kangaroo test, which he will sit on the 15/16th June. We are incredibly proud of his hard work and achievement. Well done!
To get the year new year and new school off to a flying start, Ms Stephanou has started ‘Thoughtful Friday’ with her Year 7 tutor group. This is an activity where she encourages her tutees to acknowledge the positives of the week by writing a thoughtful note about someone or something that has happened.
The notes are placed in a jar and randomly selected during form time following week.
‘Congratulations to Mr Willis, Miss Di Maria and Mr Wallen, you have made a great first impression on some members of my form.‘
