Year 7 Admissions

The John Fisher School is a voluntary aided, all-ability, Catholic school for boys. The school is conducted as a Catholic school in accordance with the Code of Canon Law promulgated by the Apostolic See and teachings of the Catholic Church.

The Governing Body, acting through its Admissions Committee, will admit 189 boys (30 of which are from the Sutton Deanery) each year at age 11 without regard to aptitude or ability. The Governors, in applying this Admissions Policy, will ensure that it conforms to the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (2005).

The John Fisher School is part of the Pan London Coordinated Admissions Scheme for secondary admissions. Applicants must complete their Home Local Authority Common Application Form (CAF) and return it to their Home Local Authority by the closing date. Sutton’s CAF is available in Sutton’s Transfer from Primary to Secondary School booklet or online at www.sutton.gov.uk/education/admissions. If an applicant wishes to apply for a place, The John Fisher School must be named as one of the preferences on the CAF. Applicants should also complete The John Fisher School Supplementary Information Form (to enable the Governors to apply their admission criteria), which is available from the school and from the London Borough of Sutton on their website. Without the Supplementary Information Form, the Governors can only consider the application after all those with Supplementary Information Forms have been considered.

To apply for a place at The John Fisher School, please complete the supplementary form and Parish Priest reference form and email them to admissions@johnfisherschool.org

“The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. If a parent or carer attended Mass at a  certain frequency at a particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) with the same frequency since that time. This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.”

Secondary School application deadline for September 2021 entry was  31st October 2020.
