Welcome to our new school website. I am delighted that you have decided to learn more about our school. This website gives you a glimpse of the varied and rich opportunities offered to our learners at St John Fisher Catholic College.
Our mission at St John Fisher Catholic College is to know each of our learners as the unique God-given gift that they are and to nurture and inspire them to become the very best version of themselves. Our dedicated and experienced staff enjoy engaging with and challenging our learners, introducing them to new learning experiences through our rich curriculum, ensuring the needs of each child are understood and met. As a team, we strive to educate your child as a spiritual, physical, emotional and academic being, so that the children in our care grow to be confident young adults who make positive contributions to our local Church, our local community and the world around them.
Throughout their time at St John Fisher Catholic College, we aim to ensure that all of our learners develop and enhance their sense of moral purpose and social justice, and we seize opportunities for our learners to develop these qualities. We aim to develop dynamic leaders who are rooted in the Fisher Way of inspiring others with love, faith and joy as part of an inclusive Catholic community.
We strive for academic excellence at all times and I am especially proud of those past learners who achieve in their university and work life, and I always love to hear from past learners about such successes, of which there are so many.
At St John Fisher Catholic College, we are blessed with a high level of success across many areas of extra-curricular life. Whether your child is interested in drama, dance, poetry, science, engineering, computing, maths, art, music or sport, our dedicated staff will support them in developing their skills and excelling in their extra-curricular activities. We are passionate about the wellbeing of our learners and explore positive ways to develop and enhance their mental health through a variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities. Please look out for some of the activities across our school community in the weekly and termly newsletters, and on our social media channels.
The relationship that my colleagues and I develop with the parents and carers of the learners is so valuable. I recognise the role that parents play as first educators of their child and the strength that comes from working together to support and challenge your child in reaching their potential.
It is a privilege to be part of this school community and I look forward to welcoming you to St John Fisher Catholic College and to journeying with you and your child throughout this exciting time in their life.
Mr Garrett Murray
