Welcome to St John Fisher Catholic High School

St John Fisher is an 11 – 18 Catholic comprehensive school that serves the Catholic communities in parishes in and around the Harrogate area.

Centred on our Catholic doctrine, we undertake to be a community, where all can give expression to their faith.Website image

First and foremost we are a place of teaching and learning, where students of all abilities may experience success and grow to their full
potential. High academic standards are a priority and we are proud of the achievements of all our students both in, and outside of the classroom.

We are a fully inclusive school, with a strong pastoral system that values every person in our community, particularly those who may be most vulnerable. We also value the personal growth of our students and their active participation in the arts, sport and the wider community.

Our purpose is to “educate for life”, so enabling all our young people to gain the skills and confidence to enrich their own lives and the society in which they live.
