Mission Statement

Together we grow in God's love,
learning to be the best we can be.

The school, in partnership with parents, carers and with the parish of St John Fisher, offers to each one of its children a Catholic education centred on Christ, which enables them to grow in God's love, learning to be the best they can be, in accordance with Christian values. 


At St John Fisher our school motto, ‘Together we grow in God’s love, learning to be the best we can be’ reflects our vision; to strive for every pupil to grow emotionally and spiritually, to set and reach aspirational goals, gaining a lifelong love of learning regardless of their starting points or individual experiences and motivation. 

As a Catholic school, our faith is entwined through every aspect of what we do. Religion is a relationship of love between the child and God, and between the child and other people, including our school family and our Parish community. At St John Fisher, we feel it is important that children learn how to show mutual respect and forgive others, following the teachings of Jesus Christ. Our school ethos and motto, scripture and Gospel values all support us to deliver this and help pupils grow in their own personal journey of faith. 

Through the inspiration to ‘Love, Learn, Achieve’, our pupils should leave our school inspired, valued and cared for, equipped with the necessary skills, values and attitudes and with happy and rich memories in RE. Therefore, enabling them to develop a living and personal faith in Jesus Christ and allowing them to know and love God, ready for their next stage in education.
