Our Mission and Ethos
‘St John Fisher High School provides outstanding Catholic education’ - Read our Section 48 report here
Our faith is the thread which holds our school community together and underpins our daily life in school. Everything we do centres around our belief that people matter and in feeling connected and positively challenged, everyone can succeed.
Our mission statement – Learning Together as a Community in Christ encapsulates everything we do. The way we organise our broad and balanced curriculum and the way we address learning barriers through our strong pastoral support systems guarantees our focus on the love of learning. A thirst for knowledge permeates through our school.
We aspire for all our school community to be life-long learners. Learning is our number one priority. Our purpose is to educate and inspire young minds so they move onto successful futures and develop into decent human beings who can function in and positively contribute towards our ever-changing modern society. We also believe we are here to serve and develop our staff community to ensure they are well-researched professionals with a healthy work/life balance and can model and inspire positive wellbeing.
We are a fully inclusive community that prepares young people – emotionally, academically and socially – by the opportunities available to them, the high standards of teaching they receive and the moral sense of duty and commitment they have to the greater good of the school.
We are a strong Catholic community in which our faith infuses how we do things, how we relate to one another and what we expect. And the way we conduct ourselves within our community is likened to that of Christ. In being Christ-like we expect all individuals in our school to be respectful, aspirational, polite, kind and listen.
The motto on our school crest – Quod Bonum Est Tenete means “Hold Fast to that which is Good”.
