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,
