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.

This morning it was fantastic to see our year 11 students pick up their results. After nearly 5 months out of school I was incredibly proud of how they dealt with results after so much upheaval. The students had worked hard across year 10 and 11 and we were pleased to see them rewarded for their skills, knowledge and application.
Students came in tutor group at a time and had the opportunity to write a note of thanks to their teachers and receive their letters of good luck and best wishes from parents and teachers. Despite the usual results day nerves and emotion, it was a lovely atmosphere with students supporting each other and celebrating success. This typified their approach and experience over the last 5 years at Fitzharrys.
All of our students now move on to the next stage in their education. For many students this will be as part of JMF6; we look forward to welcoming those students back into school in a fortnights time. We wish all of year 11 the very best as they tackle new challenges.
