Welcome Message

Mr P E McCullagh

It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of the John Fisher School which is no ordinary school. John Fisher is one of the leading Catholic boys' schools in England. I am proud to work alongside such a high performing colleagues who remain outward looking and conduct such pioneering work.

We pride ourselves on offering an excellent educational experience for all our students. Whilst our team of staff are cherished, we fully appreciate that our students will always be our priority, instilling aspiration and meeting their needs comes first. The John Fisher School has a tradition of academic success, cultural and sporting excellence combined with phenomenal pastoral care, guidance and support. The John Fisher School opened in 1929 and whilst we embrace it's past we continue to redefine our horizons. We continously aim to be a great school because we understand that great schools change lives.

We are a values-led institution. Our Christian and shared values underpin an inclusive ethos where faith is taken seriously. There is a culture of high standards for everyone who learns and works in our school. We are not interested in low expectations, fixed mind-sets, or making excuses. We are interested in unlocking the God-given potential of every individual within a caring and supportive learning environment. John Fisher is often described as "more than a school" but rather a hub in the community. It is the strength of the relationships and the goodness of the people in our community which makes us stand out. Our students fully understand the importance of representing The John Fisher School with pride and distinction.

I hope that this website gives you a flavour of our school and the distinguished reputation it has as a beacon of Catholic education for boys.
