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.

As we come to the end of the most unusual of school years, I wanted to say thank you for all your support across the academic year, but particularly since lockdown. It has been a challenging time for everyone, and your support in our efforts to educate our students in such challenging circumstances is greatly appreciated. We now turn to preparing for September and the good news that all students will be able to attend school from the start of the new academic year. The staff at Fitzharrys are looking forward to seeing everyone back and are working hard to prepare the school for the changes we need to make in line with the government guidance. Please read this letter for more details. Wishing you all the best for the summer break and we look forward to seeing you all again in September!

Our wonderful Student Wellbeing Managers now have a SWM Instagram account. The aim is to give students another way to access SWM support (especially important at this time), to keep lines of communication open, and to raise more than a few smiles - particular thanks must already go to Miss Randall, Mr Lee, Mr Nobbs and Mr Poolman! Keep checking on Instagram for more fun and useful info from the SWMs and staff team. Stay safe!

Given the updated advice from the government, the public performances of Legally Blonde will be postponed. We would ask you please to hold on to your tickets, which will be valid for a performance in the future.
A big thank you to all the Fitzharrys TEAM who have given so much to make this a great show, and to parents for all of your support around rehearsals and costumes.
These are challenging times, and we greatly appreciate your understanding and support with this decision.
