Welcome to our Academy
Our School is first and foremost a Catholic School.
Welcome to our website. I hope it offers you a flavour of the community that is St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy.
St John Fisher is a wonderful school comprising over 1000 students and 100 staff. We are a happy community, one which is rooted in tradition whilst at the same time very forward looking. For me as Headteacher, it is a privilege to serve this community and I am proud of all that our students and staff achieve every day.
What makes St John Fisher stand out from other schools is our commitment to the young people in our care, encouraging and inspiring every child to fulfil their God given potential and to flourish. We place as much emphasis on the pastoral care and faith development of each child as we do on academic excellence. As a Catholic secondary academy, we offer a unique education which places Christ at the centre of everything we do.
It is our mission as a Catholic academy to bear witness by putting Faith into action. Our CARE values – Commitment, Aspiration, Respect and Excellence form part of daily school life.
St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy is a place where all are valued for who they are and where they see themselves going. In partnership with our families, we will guide our young people on a journey that is both spiritual and academic. Together we will shape them into young adults who are true to themselves and who acknowledge their individual worth as being made in the image and likeness of God.
This is an exciting time to be a part of our community as we are on a rapid journey of improvement and are introducing a range of exciting new opportunities for our students.
We very much look forward to what the future holds for our Academy and most importantly, our students.
Mr Mackey, Headteacher
