What the school offers its staff

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 yet challenged.

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.

Further details about the role
