About Us

Values and ethos

We hope the information on this website will give you a flavour of our School, values and ethos.

We are very proud of our achievements and facilities and believe we offer an exciting educational experience for all students from 11 to 18.

‚ÄčOpportunities for success abound at John Kyrle, not least through our extensive extracurricular programme. We pride ourselves on our achievement culture and successes are always celebrated. We ask individual students to aim for their personal best in the classroom, music studio, drama theatre, on the sports field or wherever their talents emerge.
