  • All New Menus!

    Published 15/11/18

    Over the past few weeks we have been working on improving the overall standard of catering at school and specifically the menu selection for our pupils. We have recognised the need to update the service level and have taken steps to do so. We are delighted to now present for your information our new menus, which will be offered to our pupils from Monday 19 November 2018 on a three week rotation.

    Whilst the menu is based around freshly prepared, cooked and served dishes we have taken into account a number of key influences such as dietary requirements, vegetarian options, allergens, inclusion of halal produce, seasonality, affordability, availability and choice.

    We are introducing a range of dishes allowing pupils to choose between traditional main meals and meal deal combinations to the more 'street smart' grab and go choices allowing for all tastes and expectations to be met. We will always cater for those wishing to sit and enjoy a main meal but equally we will offer choices for those who choose to participate in lunchtime activities or just want to have a 'snack on the move'.

    We hope that you recognise the inclusion of  fresh fruits, topped yoghurts, salad pots and of course delicious home baked treats.

    There are pastas with fresh toppings, baked potatoes with a range of fillings, traditional main dishes, a wide range of freshly made bread products and we are introducing regular themed events where tasty and exciting dishes will be offered reflective of a special event or date in our school calendar.

  • Meet our Chaplain

    Published 26/09/18

    My name is Mrs Sweeney and I am part-time RE teacher and part-time chaplain.

    In my role as chaplain I plan whole school Masses with the local priests, staff and pupils. Throughout the year I lead each form in quiet reflection in the Chapel during form time as well as assisting them in preparing for form Masses and assemblies alongside their form teachers. This gives all pupils the opportunity to take part in the spiritual life of the school. I open chapel before school for staff reflection and during lunchtime for pupils

    I am also responsible for coordinating the GIFT team. We now have GIFT team members in each year group who are happy to share their faith with others in our community by helping out during Mass and other religious services as well as helping in charity events. I am supported in this task by a dedicated group of teachers.

  • Come to Fisher More because...

    Published 20/09/18

    ...the teachers allow students to have an enjoyable experience whilst still having a fantastic education.  All of the teachers will go  out of their way to support us and ensure to let all of our bright colours shine.

    The thing I like most about Fisher More is the connection students and teachers have whilst still having access to the best education.

    My favourite lesson is maths because of the skills all the department have.  The fact that they will personally support you, give you GCSE-style questions to build you up and the immense amount of maths you learn makes Fisher More the best school.

    My experience of Fisher More has been outstanding; I have made so many friends and have progressed from a lower ability set to the highest.  Thank you family Fisher More!
