What the school offers its staff

John Kyrle High School is fortunate to have hugely-committed staff who give their all, take public service seriously and are keen to provide extra-curricular activities in a multitude of areas. The school aims to provide all students with a life-enhancing secondary school experience where students feel happy and secure, yet challenged.

A recent increase in student numbers has led to the installation of additional classrooms. A new Maths Centre of Excellence has been opened with 10 specialist maths classrooms and a shared study facility for A-level students and staff. Our latest development, a new science block with six large specialist laboratories, was opened this academic year.

Further details about the role
