About Us


It is both a joy and a privileged to be the Headteacher of John Kyrle High School. We are working relentlessly to make John Kyrle the absolute pride of our town. In everything that we do our aim is to maximise the engagement and participation of the young people in our care.

Our key priorities as a school are simple and we all work towards our “TEACH” goals:

  • T - Teaching and Learning
  • E - Engagement
  • A - Academic Outcomes
  • C - Community
  • H - High Quality Leadership

At John Kyrle High School we are a community of learners passionate to make a difference.  We are a popular high school with over 1,420 students who are drawn from the town of Ross and the surrounding rural areas.  The school is located on the Ledbury Road about half a mile from the Market house and adjoining the dual carriageway. We are 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.  Our school is also very proud to be part of the Heart of Mercia Multi-Academy Trust and benefits greatly from being in a family of high-performing schools. 

Partnerships with parents and the wider community are high on our list of priorities in order to help every student achieve their potential. Our school motto is ’Carpe Diem’ - seize the day! 

We try to live up this motto.
