Departmental Aims

St John Fisher Catholic High School aims to empower all students with the knowledge, skills, values and confidence to take part in sport and physical activities through an extensive and diverse programme of study and a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities.

Our PE Department provides an array of sporting, recreational, health and fitness opportunities for students of all ages and abilities to enjoy and develop their inter-personal, social and sporting skills whilst implementing the core values of St John Fisher.

At St John Fisher, we believe that PE is unique in its ability to develop the ‘whole’ child. We value the fact that PE lessons form an integral part of the core curriculum for all students and that PE is considered a serious GCSE option.

Through the PE Department, we are proud to offer extended curriculum opportunities that promote and enhance our students’ relationships, social development, health and enjoyment of school life. We firmly believe that competitive sport and ‘opportunities for ALL’ can co-exist in a busy school environment. At

St John Fisher we are fortunate to have a vast amount of talent on show, with students regularly competing in county, regional and national competitions and attending Football Academies and Centre’s of Excellence.

The vast majority of our students take advantage of one or more of the activities, available to them during the school day, at lunchtime, after school and at weekends. This commitment from both staff and pupils have enabled St John Fisher to establish ourselves across the country in a sporting capacity.
The PE Department are extremely proud of the achievements that our students have accomplished both individually and as a team during their time at St John Fisher, where they have enjoyed success at area, county and national level.
