The 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. John Kyrle aims to provide all students with
a life-enhancing secondary school experience where students feel happy and secure
John Kyrle is a popular and oversubscribed high school with
other 1400 students who are drawn from the town of Ross and the surrounding
rural area. The school is located on the Ledbury Road about half a mile from
the Market House and adjoining the dual carriageway. John Kyrle High School is organised on a year
basis with form tutors and a head of year responsible for the pastoral care and
monitoring of students. We also have a
team of high-experienced pastoral support officers. Form tutors stay with their tutor groups from
Years 7 to 11. A head of sixth form
oversees Years 12 and 13.
The school has excellent facilities, including sports fields, an
all-weather sports surface, tennis courts, a specialist drama studio, a
purpose-built art and ceramics facility, and a modern library. There are also
technology workshops, a music- technology suite and practice rooms, computer
and business rooms, language lab, a gymnasium and an on-site sports hall which
are used extensively. Our tennis and
netball courts have just been refurbished and are a fantastic addition.
There is a strong tradition of music, drama and art at the
school. A recent increase in student numbers has led to the installation of
additional classrooms. In 2015, a new Maths Centre of Excellence was 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.
