4th November 2011 A GREAT OPEN EVENING AT THE JOHN KYRLE HIGH SCHOOL

Following a great start to the new academic year, the John Kyrle High School held an open evening on Thursday 20th October to enable year six students and their parents to see for themselves the kind of excellent education they can expect from the school. There were diplays from the various key stages in each subject and visitors were also treated to gymnastics and dance performances.

Upon arrival, visitors were given a plan of the school, indicating which rooms were open for viewing and a suggested route was printed on the back to make finding their way around the school even easier. Many students also acted as guides and were happy to personally show people around the school's many facilities.

After a short while, the school bell sounded, and many poeple packed into the Main Hall to hear Head Teacher, Mr. Nigel Griffiths talk about the school, which now has Academy status. When he had finished his address, half a dozen year 7 students took to the podium, telling all how they were settling in, how much they were enjoying their new school and how welcome they have been made to feel. Mrs Trixie Williams also spoke and the current Head Boy and Head Girl recounted how they had felt when they began time at the John Kyrle High School.

Apart from wonderful facilities such as the awesome music suite, the John Kyrle High School boasts excellent staff and has so much to offer its students, their parents and the local community. I have been attending 'Open Evenings' for many years now and the school jsut gets better and better.
