John Kyrle High School in Ross-on-Wye has been named as one of the top-performing institutions based on its latest A-level results.

The A-level Performance System (ALPS) said that the school was in the top 10 cent nationally after all of its students passed their A-levels last summer - including 63 per cent gained A* to B grades.

John Kyrle has now been invited to work with other schools who are hoping to improve their curriculum and results.

"We are consistently graded as 'outstanding' by Ofsted for our sixth form provision and This recognition from ALPS endorses these judgements," said John Kyrle High School headteacher Nigel Griffiths.

"I am very proud of my students and staff for their very hard work and appreciative of the continued support of parents, governors and the community.
