Please can you help to find Fritz?

On Saturday 21st April a male tabby cat called Fritz went missing from the Ashe Green, Bridstow area of Ross. He was a year old that day!

Fritz, who belongs to Natasha Hail, is extremely inquisitive and could be in somebody's garage, shed or car. A reward is being offered for his safe return.

If you find Fritz or if you think you may have seen him, please contact Natasha as soon as possible by telephoning 01989 563752 or 07799696876. His family are missing him.

London Visit

As part of their A level English Literature course, sixteen John Kyrle students recently visited London to research two of their set texts.

The first stop was on the edge of Hampstead Heath at the home of the Romantic poet John Keats. The students were given a guided tour of the house where Keats wrote most of his most famous poems and were able to study the many resources that the house owns to inform their understanding of his life and times.

This was followed by a visit to the Theatre Museum in Covent Garden where the students saw an archive recording of their set play, Webster's 'The Duchess of Malfi'.

The trip was an invaluable insight into the background of both texts and was greatly helped by glorious spring weather.

Business as Usual at The White Lion

Work has commenced at The White Lion, Wilton, on a large outdoor pergola and new pub windows. The pergola will provide a comfortable area for those who wish to smoke after the 1st July smoking ban comes into force. As the structure will have a slate roof, lighting and heating, proprietors, Dave and Jacqui intend to enhance this area for functions and additional al fresco dining.

Dave and Jacqui would like to inform all their customers that it is business as usual whilst these works are being carried out.

Hat Trick for Sixth Form

John Kyrle Sixth Form students are celebrating the most successful application period to Universities ever seen at the school.

Pictured below are Roberta Fisher who has an offer to read biology at St Catherine's College Oxford, Clare Powell who is to read Veterinary Science at Nottingham and Jacob Stroud who was successful in gaining an offer to read Law at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.

Success has run right through the Sixth Form with students successful in applications to Bristol, Warwick, Exeter, Durham, Loughborough and Bath amongst others, and to read a diverse and challenging range of subjects including Chemistry, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, European Law, Economics, French and Spanish.

Applications for the new Year Twelve are running at an all time high and Year Thirteen students are studying hard to ensure their places at University..

Ross Town Public Meeting
