Join the Fisher Family

Welcome to St John Fisher Catholic High School!

We are a thriving Catholic school community serving young people in the heart of Wigan.

We believe in delivering a challenging, broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by a strong faith experience and an excellent pastoral care system.

We believe every child deserves to feel safe and valued and because of this, our young people flourish academically, socially and spiritually in our school.

Our mission statement, Learning Together as a Community in Christ encapsulates everything we do.

We promote a love of learning through our quality first teaching. We are a fully inclusive community which recognises the worth of every individual and we encourage all our community to be Christ-like – being respectful, polite, kind and aspirational. Could you be part of that team?

Why work at St John Fisher?

We have high expectations of our students and of our staff – people matter in our school. We expect our staff to be models of excellence and demonstrate a strong moral core and a professional work ethic. Staff are valued and supported in their pursuit of professional development. In return, we expect total commitment to our strong Catholic ethos and a relentless pursuit of aspiration for our young people – we want them to do their best and be their best.

Our school has been identified as one of fifty schools to be in the first stage of the Department for Education’s, new School Rebuilding Programme. A full new school will be built on the current site with construction commencing January 2022.
