The mission statement for the school states “Bishop Fox’s is committed to providing quality education, achieving excellence and promoting enterprise”. This is well demonstrated by the level of commitment of both staff and students. The students take a pride in their school and are very supportive of each other.

The school is well situated, with excellent facilities. Lessons are both stimulating as well as challenging and the school is consistently exceeding targets set for learning.

I would not hesitate in recommending Bishop Fox’s to anyone looking for a suitable secondary school for their son or daughter.


Why choose Fox’s – As a parent of two students at Bishop Fox’s, I believe the school offers a caring and supportive environment, where children feel happy and confident to learn. All children are offered numerous opportunities to develop a variety of skills allowing them to become independent learners.

The school encourages the children to set themselves high standards in all that they do, whilst guiding them to achieve their full potential.

You can join lots of different clubs: P.E., dance, media, drama, music and loads more

In all honesty, the decision to come to Bishop Fox’s was one of the best choices I have ever made. After four wonderful years at the school I don’t regret my decision one bit. Like many year 6 pupils I had many apprehensions about the school at first; however, I obviously didn’t know Bishop Fox’s. It is a lovely, friendly school which truly cares for and values the pupils within it. Students with all different talents are catered for with a wide variety of clubs and organisations on offer. All achievements are recognised – big or small and students are supported through the five years. Not only do I love coming to school to learn, but I think the site facilities are exceptional. Bishop Fox’s is a truly inspiring school, which really does uphold its motto: “high standards and high expectations”.
