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
