As a Catholic school in the Diocese of Salford our Mission and Core Values are at the heart of everything we do.

Love, Faith, Courage and Passion are known by all the children and lived each and every day.

St John Fisher School is a lovely place to be. Our children are happy and together with their parent/carers, siblings and extended family are part of the wider St John Fisher family.

The staff and children of the ASD Base contribute to the school family in a very unique way and share in a number of joint celebrations with the main school each week.

All staff work in partnership with parents/carers and strive to keep improving the education we offer for our children. We value the contributions parents/carers make for it is when home, school and parish work well together that we get the best possible outcomes for our children.

We want to provide memories that our children will have for a lifetime but to also equip them with the skills, confidence and resilience to become change-makers of the future. We are ambitious and we want our children to reach for the stars.
