Fitzharrys is an improving school that is really going places. We are delighted to celebrate a 12% rise in our GCSE results in 2014 to 60% 5A*-C including English and Maths. Our English results rose by 11%, and results in Maths built on last year’s 16% increase to go up by a further 9%. Top grades rose across the school. Our A Level results are also a new school record for students based at and taught at Fitzharrys, as part of the Abingdon Consortium for Education. We are very proud of our students and staff, and it is great to see their hard work, commitment and determination rewarded in this way.
We are particularly seeking applicants with skills in any of the following: premises management/construction, health & safety or financial management but would welcome any application from members of the community who want to make a difference. Click here for further details and how to apply.

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.

The final few weeks at Fitzharrys are a flurry of activity.
Year 7 students have flourished at camp, throwing themselves wholeheartedly into every experience. Fitzactive has been another great success with students in Year 8 and 9 rising to so many challenges. Year 10 return from broadening their horizons on Work Experience to collect their rehearsal exam results. 3rd July is the Year 11 Prom and the school is buzzing with anticipation of the wonderful weird and whacky ways in which students will arrive for end of year celebration. All this, and Fitzharrys staff have hit the press and over 11,000 Youtube views strutting their stuff to say thank you to Year 11 for all of their hard work.
Next week’s highlights include Governors Tea and the Technology Faculty Exhibition (7/7), Open Morning (8/7), the Art Show in Bury Street Community Shop (8-11/7), Sports Day (9/7) and our annual talent show Stars (10/7). Phew!
All of these great achievements are made possible by the hardworking, creative and dedicated students and staff at Fitzharrys. Thank you to everyone for producing a packed and positive end to another great school year.
The staff and governors at Fitzharrys have high expectations and ambitions for the future of the school. This document outlines some of our aims for the next two years. We have already shared this with parents in one of our regular open meetings. It builds upon the existing strengths that our students, staff, parents and inspectors recognise, and shows where we are heading. Details of our vision in action.
