Growing as a community, guided by Jesus
Today rather than tomorrow
Today rather than tomorrow

A Warm Welcome

Mrs Brett, Headteacher

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.

Our Mission Statement

Guided by Jesus’ love and example, we use our gifts to grow, pray and learn as a community; united in faith.

For I know the plans I have for you; plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
