About Us

Fairfield is a unique school, greatly valued by its community. Our students have high aspirations - and so do we! Our staff and parents are committed to working together to make sure our young people's dreams come true. FHS is an exceptional school. In the letter, following our “Good” Ofsted in November 2017, the lead inspector noted that our school was “very harmonious and inclusive” and that students were “intellectually curious” and since then we have taken several steps closer to being judged Outstanding in all areas.

We joined the Excalibur Academies Trust in February 2015 and we were excited by the opportunities this brings to share expertise and ideas for the benefit of our students. We support all our students to realise their academic potential, while also helping them to develop and grow as people.

Our school is in the top 15 per cent in England for Value-Added GCSE results and an increasing number of families are choosing Fairfield High School for their children - our first-preference applications have rocketed.
