FORMER headteacher of Goodrich Primary School, Tony Griffiths, recently visited John Kyrle to catch up with staff.

Tony was at Goodrich for over 20 years and during that time oversaw hundreds of pupils making the transition to secondary school at John Kyrle.

Nigel Griffiths said he liked and respected Tony, including when they were headteacher colleagues for many years.

Tony has always kept in close contact with John Kyrle, including recently as part of his work with teacher training at Gloucestershire University.

Trixie Clarke, assistant headteacher, showed Tony around John Kyrle.

Tony said how impressed he was with the relaxed and purposeful atmosphere in classrooms and with the school's the facilities. He was particularly impressed with the art and maths centres.
