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 180 boys from September 2023 (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 (LAF) and return it to their Home Local Authority by the closing date. Sutton’s LAF is available in Sutton’s Transfer from Primary to Secondary School booklet or online at If an applicant wishes to apply for a place, The John Fisher School must be named as one of the preferences on the LAF. Applicants should also complete The John Fisher School Supplementary Information Form and Parish Priest reference (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.
