?St John Fisher is a College of high expectations. Our goal is for all girls to realise their potential in a supportive and diverse learning environment, valuing the dignity and integrity of each individual.
We have a strong pastoral care focus, a wide variety of co-curricular activities and we expect all students to become involved in College life. We encourage girls to step out of their comfort zones, be problem solvers and future focussed. We offer opportunities and experiences that will allow all girls to explore their own gifts and talents. Feeling connected, protected and respected are key factors in building resilience and this is a key part of the St John Fisher College culture.
St John Fisher has a Sisters of Mercy foundation and we are proud to nurture the girls in this way of care for others, social justice and outreach.
