It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website. We are very proud of our caring school: it's wonderful children; the dedicated, talented staff and supportive community.
"The school is great at extending the children, helping them reach their full potential and giving them a happy environment to flourish in." Year 2 Parent
St John Fisher is a bright, busy, welcoming school where there is always lots going on. We benefit from a highly committed staff who work well together to ensure every child reaches their potential whatever their aptitude or ability. We aim to provide the best possible education for our children and value academic, creative, sporting, social and personal development equally highly. We believe that children learn best when they experience enjoyable, relevant activities and where they are encouraged, supported and appropriately challenged. We aim to enable our children to become enthusiastic, independent, life-long learners by helping them to develop positive attitudes to learning and the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
Pupils say that the outstanding behaviour observed in lessons is typical. They state that
they get on very well together and that they ‘love learning, their lessons and writing’. Ofsted September 2012
We enjoy a high level of parental support and interest, we firmly believe in the benefits of home, school and parish working together to develop the talents of our children.
As a Catholic school, the spiritual development of our children is based on the Church's teachings and on the Christian principles of love, respect, selflessness and forgiveness.
The welcoming atmosphere and the religious ethos permeate every aspect of school life. Ofsted September 2012
