Welcome

Together Everyone Achieves More

Welcome to our fantastic school where Together Everyone Achieves More

Our mission statement starts “We are a successful school that is really moving forward because of everyone's passions, creativity, consistency and commitment.

We are a school with strong and warm relationships. We have committed and caring staff who want to get the very best from every child. We see our students as our greatest assets, as it is their sparkle, charm and individuality that makes our school what it is. When you join our school you are immediately part of the Fitzharrys family, with the love, support and challenge to feel happy in a place where you belong. This means you can achieve your very best.

With a very positive recent Ofsted report, record results, record attendance and impressive behaviour for learning, Fitzharrys is a great school where everyone has the opportunity to shine. All of these positives confirm the view of our parents and Ofsted that we are “a very caring and supportive community where pupils flourish.”

We believe that like our students the potential for Fitzharrys is limitless. This is a strong school that is set up for even greater success, and it is really going places. Students, staff and governors can be proud to be part of something special, making a real difference to the lives of our young people and our community.

The ethos and spark of Fitzharrys are captures in school motto ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’ and in our key values of Growth, Ownership, Achievement, Leadership and Success. We welcome visitors for a tour at any time to discover more about Fitzharrys and to see all the great things that our school has to offer.

Best wishes
Jonathan Dennett, Headteacher
