About our School
St. John Fisher Catholic Comprehensive School was established in 1964. St. John Fisher is a unique school in Medway; it is the only Catholic secondary school within the Local Authority. It is also the only secondary school with two separate sites, allowing us to provide a small and nurturing school dedicated to Years 7 and 8, making the transition from primary to secondary much easier.
Our Ordnance Street site provides a specialist centre for Years 9 to 13 and hosts our Sixth Form Centre, which provides a range of dedicated facilities including a café bar, ICT suites and classrooms. In Years 9 to 11, students have an extensive range of applied and academic options to ensure that they have appropriate learning pathways that lead to success. The Ordnance Street site has been refurbished and improved to give greater access to learning through ICT, improved science laboratories, multi-media access for BTEC courses and a refurbished library.
We believe that our Sixth Form Centre supports students to achieve their best in an ethos of high expectation and challenge. In addition to this, by being based with students from Years 9 to 11, they will have better opportunities to act as role-models for younger students and contribute to the culture and ethos of the school. They can also develop their leadership skills by taking on roles within the Sixth Form team such as Head Boy and Head Girl.
Mrs Dympna Lennon is the Headteacher of St. John Fisher School.
