Our CEO Neil Lockyer wrote an accompanying letter with the report.

‘There are so many positive elements in this report, and it makes very clear why St John Fisher is a ‘Good School’. I was particularly pleased to read the incredibly positive comments about pupils’ enthusiasm for their learning, their very good behaviour, and that “respect is at the heart of every relationship in the school”. It is clear that teaching is of a very high standard across the school, and it is also very telling that every pupil spoken to by the inspector said that they would recommend the school to a friend.’
