  • Monday 27 September 2021 Respect-Addressing Sexualised Language and Behaviours Students in Years 7-11 will be engaging in a wealth of activities and discussions highlighting the impact of sexualised language and behaviour towards others. In PSHCE lessons from 4th October, they will learn about the increasing use of inappropriate language and behaviour in society that is becoming normalised. At St John Fisher we want to address this issue and educate our students to realise the negative impact of this culture. Sixth Form students engaged in such lessons during their induction which has given some students the confidence to stand up and speak out against inappropriate behaviours.

  • Thursday 25 March 2021 Year 12 Law Students get creative! Criminopoly, Connect Law, Guess Whodunnit and Criminal Snakes and Ladders formed the basis of Year 12 Law students today as Mr Sykes encouraged them to get creative. Students got inventive by applying their learning on theft and manslaughter to questions linked to our well known board games. Mr Sykes was keen for students to recall and retain key cases and the principles of law by alternative means. The result? Everyone’s a winner!
