Celebration of Success at JKHS Sixth Form
JKHS sixth form, graded Outstanding by OFSTED, has been recognised as being in the top 5% of schools and colleges nationally.
Happy, Healthy and Successful indeed!
Well done to all our fantastic students, staff, parents, carers and trustees.

Headteacher, Nigel Griffiths, said: ‘This has, once again been a hugely successful academic year for us. It confirms the strong culture and highly-effective teamwork at school and, additionally, our all-important relationships with parents, carers and the wider community. I am very proud of what we achieved in the summer of 2018 and look forward to building upon this for our current students, including nearly 400 students we welcomed into Years 7 and 12 when we started back in September.’
GCSE Results - Summer 2018
The new system for measuring a school’s success at GCSE is via ‘Progress 8’. In the summer of 2018 pupils overall had a Progress 8 score of +0.34. This means pupils made significantly more progress than others nationally of similar abilities. It was particularly pleasing that pupils who joined the school with higher, middle and lower attainment all made positive progress by the end of their GCSEs.
This was the first year through of most exams being graded using numbers instead of letters.
There are two levels of pass: Standard Pass, which measures the proportion of pupils gaining grade 4+ in English and mathematics; Strong Pass, which measures the proportion of pupils gaining grade 5+ in English and mathematics.
(2017 figures in brackets)
Standard Pass = 66% (66%)
Strong Pass = 50% (42%)
% Entered for EBacc = 56% (50%)
EBacc average points score = 4.63
Attainment 8 Score = 48.6 points
Less than 1% of pupils are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), as is the case over time.
Year 13 'A' Level Results - Summer 2018
Over 60% of students gained A*-B at A level with a 100% pass rate. The average grade was B. The A-Level Performance System (ALPS) against which A-level performance in all schools and colleges is measured, consistently place John Kyrle in the top 10-20% nationally. We are the best-performing school and college in Herefordshire and our performance betters that of very many schools and colleges in surrounding counties.
