Welcome to Fitzharrys School

A message from the Head of School


I am very proud to be the Head of Fitzharrys School. It is a fantastic school where students are given an array of opportunities to develop, thrive and achieve. Our superb team of staff are committed to helping every student reach their full potential. They work with care and expertise to bring the very best out of our students. This is evident in the enthusiasm, focus and achievements of our students.

There is real warmth in the welcome you receive when you join Fitzharrys. The sense of pride and belonging is evident in the school, as is the support and challenge. We want our students to be the very best they can be, and we do everything we can to make that happen.

Our Ofsted report, consistently strong results, high attendance and impressive behaviour for learning all illustrate the ethos and outcomes of Fitzharrys. Our parents and visitors to the school rightly state that we are “a very caring and supportive community where pupils flourish.”

While great teaching and learning is at the heart of what we do, we support students learning through a wide range of opportunities in and out of the classroom. Our social media pages give a taste of what goes on, as does our events calendar.

We always welcome people to come and visit us. Meeting our staff and students will give you a real insight into what our great school has to offer.

Best wishes,

Will Speke
Head of School

COVID-19 Update - Thursday 14th January

Following the commencement of another full lockdown, please read this letter (14/01/2021) for the latest updates on remote learning including live and recorded lessons, marking and feedback, homework, attendance, behaviour and support.

Commencement of remote learning

We will update epraise daily with resources and links to live lessons, as per your child’s usual timetable. All resources and links for the day should be uploaded by 8.30am. This term sees the introduction of live lessons; a link will be placed on epraise within the task description.

Early Closing - Updated

In light of the current lockdown, the early school close for deep cleaning scheduled for Friday 22nd January has now been cancelled.

The next early close is scheduled for Wednesday 10th March. In this event, students would head home at 1.10pm to allow us to deep clean the site. We will confirm whether this plan will go ahead nearer the time. 

While we hope that the need for these days will diminish, it is important we plan to keep our site safe for staff and students. We will keep you updated.

FSA GoFundMe

A huge thank you to everyone who has very kindly donated to the FSA's GoFundMe crowdfunder so far, especially in these uncertain times - the whole Fitzharrys community is very grateful for your generosity.

The GoFundMe will remain open into the spring term, and the students and staff look forward to seeing the first pieces of new outdoor furniture arrive next term!
