We hope it will give you an insight into what makes our school so special and distinctive. I feel blessed to lead such a supportive, caring and high-achieving school that puts Christ at the centre of everything we do.
It is our mission to ensure that all our learners experience a truly great Catholic education that enables them to flourish academically and shine personally, preparing them for a happy and successful adult life. The education at St John Fisher Catholic College is rooted in our understanding of Jesus’ words: “I am the way, the truth and the life.” In December 2016, Ofsted noted that "The school's ethos , 'Christ's way , His truth, Your life' , shines through all aspects of school life. It is a welcoming place for pupils, parents and visitors." This mission statement inspires our inclusive school community to share in a love of life , social justice. forgiveness and faith.
We are committed to academic endeavours, so that our young people grow and develop God given talents to reach their potential and contribute to society. St John Fisher Catholic College is a high performing, oversubscribed school which was once again rated Good by Ofsted in December 2016. Our most recent inspection by the Birmingham Archdiocese in May 2016 rated us as an Outstanding Catholic school. Our academic success is supported by a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, a number of successful sporting teams, a winning Greenpower F24 team and a wide range of outstanding musical ensembles. Our active and effective school council were highly commended in the Speaker’s School Council Awards 2017.
These are exciting times for St John Fisher Catholic College, having recently secured funding of £2.2 million for a new teaching block which will open in September 2018.
I am extremely proud of the achievements of our learners across a wide range of academic subjects and extra-curricular activities and of our hard working and highly motivated staff.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the website and should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us by email or telephone.

Congratulations to 11 Year 9 learners, who successfully set up and ran their own enterprises raising an amazing £436.14 profit. All profits are being donated to Head Smart, a charity supporting the early diagnosis of brain tumours.
We as a school have been incredibly fortunate to secure additional funding to replace our mobile classrooms with a new block. There are however strict rules about how the money can be spent. It covers all fixtures and fittings but does not extend to furniture.
