Success for Ross-on-Wye Cross Country Runners

In January, at the Hereford Schools Cross-country Championships a number of pupils from John Kyrle High School did very well. Kelsey Smith was first, Vanessa Brann second, Ellie Dunford fifth and Alice Ancrum ninth in the Junior Girls race. Jordon Simmons came fourth for the Junior Boys' and Jack Ancrum fourth for the Senior Boys.

These pupils were all selected to represent the district in the Hereford and Worcester Cross-country Championships at Bromsgrove High School, on Saturday, 5th February.

Vanessa Brann and Kelsey Smith qualified at Bromsgrove for the English Schools Championship. Vanessa came second and Kelsey Smith fourth, making them both automatic qualifiers. There were sixty runners in total, so they both did very well indeed.

Pictured left is Vanessa, who was twelve on 19th August and is probably one one the youngest qualifiers for a long time.

Vanessa was victor ludorum for year seven girls, she has already broken both the 1,500 and 800 metre school records and has retained the under thirteen county championship for cross country running for two years. She also won the John Thomas Memorial Shield for outstanding achievement in junior sports.

Congratulations to all of the runners. This is a great achievement for John Kyrle High School, and for the town of Ross on Wye.



Food Technology and Business Studies Class at JKHS


John Kyrle High School was the first in the county this academic year to to take part in a food and technology masterclass, funded by Advantage West Midlands. This was to explore the vast and varying career opportunities within the food and drink industry.

The day was organized and set up by a teachers' team along with 'Young Enterprise' and the key speaker was Ken Jollans, Managing Director of Robertsons Ledbury Preserves Ltd. Divided into small groups, the students set up their own business for the day to design, produce, package and advertise a product around the theme 'Love Is' for St. Valentines Day.

JKHS Non-uniform fund raising day a success . . .


Following on from last week's report; the non-uniform fund raising day at John Kyrle High School, in aid of the Asian tsunami appeal and the school's ongoing Kisiki College project in Uganda. The pupils of the school managed to raise over £1,200 to help the two causes. Well done to all involved!
