Head's welcome

Welcome to St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy.


St John Fisher is a school for children between the ages of 4 -11 yrs. We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to flourish and develop to their full potential. Here they can acquire skills to become confident and articulate, well equipped to meet the challenges of a fast changing world.

We are committed to the development of the individual enabling every pupil to fulfill their potential, not only in their academic studies but also in sports, drama, music or wherever their talents may lie.

We believe that it takes a whole community to educate a child, so we aim to work in partnership with parents. We are very proud of our St John Fisher Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which organises many social and fundraising events. As a Catholic school we have strong links with the parishes of St Mary's, South Wigston and Immaculate Conception, Oadby.

We strive to offer a high quality education across the full curriculum, including many extra-curricular activities.

We are always delighted to welcome visitors and look forward to meeting you.

With all good wishes,

Mary Hirst

4+ Assembly

What a fantastic assembly! Well done 4+ and all the teachers involved in preparing the 'Mother's Day' special assembly.

Happy Mother's Day!


Thursday 27th March

Well done to the school football team after they beat Little Hill primary school in a thrilling match. The final score was 3-2. An excellent game that played in terrible conditions ( I hope everyone has dried off!), both teams played superbly well.

That's it now for the league. We finished winning 4 games and losing just the one. Well done to all the players for their commitment and representing the school so well. Many thanks to all the parents who came and supported both home and away.

World Book Day

March 6th 2014

We all had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day.

To begin the  day, a librarian came in and read 'Figgy Roll' to the spellbound hall. She later did workshops with many of the classes. Before lunch, classes buddied together to read to and with each other.  Meanwhile, some more able writers got a chance to hone their craft with Adrienne, a published author. Many of the pupils brought in their favourite books and we shared them in the hall together for 'The Big Read'. Very loudly and very happily
