St John Fisher is a special place; an inclusive learning community with a strong vision, shared values and visible Catholic ethos.
We are ambitious and work hard to go further in order to be the very best we can be. Our community is a place of aspiration; where expectations of both pupils and staff are high.
Our children deserve nothing less than our best.
We have been on an exciting journey; a journey which has reinvigorated our community and led to significant improvements which have raised standards and improved pupil outcomes. Our achievements were rewarded with positive judgements and an overall rating of ‘Good’ in our last Ofsted inspection in May 2015.
We are a community focused on our wonderful children. Our aim is to provide each with a rich and caring environment in which they will feel happy, safe and loved and be inspired to enjoy and achieve every day.
We believe that every child is talented and unique and should be affirmed and supported to appreciate their uniqueness and own gifts and talents. This is why our community is one where every child is known, understood and loved.
We aim to be a welcoming place in which all are treated with respect, tolerance and understanding. We aim to be a highly inclusive organisation where good manners are valued and every child is able to experience success and gain the skills and attitudes necessary to be happy and successful life-long learners.
We are a school that recognises and values the role of parents and carers as our children’s first educators. We therefore invite them to be our partners and to engage with school life fully. We share lots of information and work closely with them to ensure that their children can be the best they can be.
We also strive to be a beating heart within our parish and local communities working with both to enrich the lives and experiences of our children and their families.
I am honoured to be Headteacher of such a special place. I am immensely proud of our young people and of how we continue to grow and develop as a community. St John Fisher is an academy that looks forward with confidence and a strong sense of purpose.
