  • Prom 2017

    Published 26/06/17

    On Friday evening, our Year 11 pupils crowned a wonderful five years at Fisher More with their end-of-school prom at Mytton Fold Hotel, Billington.

    Volkswagen Campervans, classic and modern sports cars rolled up the driveway, before liberating onto the red carpet a glamorous parade of pupils who lit up the overcast East Lancashire evening.

    They were not alone - many teachers and parents turned out to see one of Fisher More’s finest year groups enjoy their evening. Not even the sight of Mr Gray’s legs in a kilt could spoil the occasion - although many parents went away with a subconscious reminder to pick up a couple of bottles of milk for the morning!

    The thought of recent examinations was a distant memory, as our young men and women posed for photographs on the lawn.  Pouting for the camera – we saw you, boys – our pupils looked splendid in their finery.  Sequins glittered, warm smiles radiated and eyelashes fluttered for the photographers.  They looked spectacular.  There were a few curious choices of outfit: apparently, it is now fashionable not to wear socks with a suit.  How times change!

    Looking resplendent, Prom King and Queen, David Gibbons and Caitlin Gerrard, got the dancing started, before the dancefloor bounced with enthusiastic energy for the remainder of the night.  Rumours that Ms Hayes was leading a conga at one point are yet to be confirmed!

  • Oxford University Visit

    Published 23/06/17

    This week, as part of the new Pendle Elite programme, five Year 10 pupils from Fisher More visited Oxford University to sample life in one of the most prestigious universities in the world. 

    Head Boy, Dominic Walker, and fellow Year 10 pupils, Sam Jennings, Lewis Imeson, George McCaigue and Josiah Irons were treated to an afternoon in the famous Ashmolean Museum, followed by a walking tour of the 'city of dreaming spires', taking in such sites as Exeter College, the Bodleian Library and Christchurch Meadows. The hottest day of the year so far did not stop them taking 20,000 steps!

  • Year 5 Taster Day

    Published 14/06/17

    Welcome Year 5!

    Yesterday, we hosted a ‘taster day’ for all Year 5 pupils from our main feeder primary schools Sacred Heart, Holy Trinity, St. Joseph’s, Holy Saviour and St John Southworth.

    They arrived rather excited and nervous but left feeling much happier about moving to High School. During the day, they were able to have a taste of a number of lessons including, science, RE, drama and computer science.

    Thank you to all the staff  from both Fisher More and the primaries that helped to make the day so enjoyable for all.
