Welcome to our fantastic school where Together Everyone Achieves More
Our mission statement starts “We are a great 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.

The Fitzharrys House system is just one of the ways in which students develop and demonstrate our core values of Leadership, Excellence, Ambition, Respect and No Limits. There are so many ways in which everyone can win points for themselves and for their House. The healthy competition encourages students to reach for greater heights. You can see the latest scores between the four houses below.
This summer’s exam results days saw smiles all round as students celebrated the success that their grit, talent and hard work deserved.
It has been fantastic to see students, staff and parents come together to share in these great achievements.
Record exam results are of course only one measure of the success and achievement of any school. Each and every day we see the spirit and spark of our wonderful students and school in action, in the classroom, labs and workshops, on the sports field, on the stage or in performance. We are a happy, positive and successful community that is making a real difference to the lives of our students and staff.
