Welcome Message


It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of the John Fisher School which is one of the leading Catholic boys' schools in England. We pride ourselves on offering an excellent educational experience for all our students. 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.

We are a values-led institution, with 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.

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.
