About St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy. Myself, and the staff, pupils and parents are proud and privileged to be part of our thriving school.

We are a small school situated in Alvaston, Derby. We have the capacity to educate 230 children and are part of St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust. St John Fisher is a diverse community where every child is valued as a gift from God and every child is welcomed.

The Catholic Faith remains at the heart of life here at St. John Fisher Catholic Academy. With God’s guidance and the support of parents and the parish community, we support our children to develop a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and a deep understanding of the values and the practices of the Catholic Church through our Mission Statement and Mission Motto.

We provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for all, having the highest aspirations for all and creating a culture of intellectual curiosity. We strive to nurture each child fulfilling their potential and talents, emotionally, socially and academically. In the last Ofsted Inspection in February 2018 we were classed as ‘Good’ and in our Diocesan Canonical Inspection we were rated ‘Good’ in June 2015.

We believe that parents are the most important educators of their children and work hard to encourage a positive relationship between home, school and the parish to provide a holistic education for your child.

If you would like to know more about our school, please get in touch either via email or by telephoning 01332 572154.
