Executive Principal's Welcome

Please see our Executive Principal & Active Principal Updates page for a termly insight into FHS life from Ms Mangham and Mr Lewis


Fairfield High School is no ordinary school

Fairfield High School 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 was rated Good with Outstanding Features by Ofsted in 2013 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 are 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.

FHS students consistently gain excellent results and we have been recognised nationally for our outstanding achievement.

An increasing number of families are choosing Fairfield High School for their children – we are in the top five most popular schools in Bristol and have had to expand to accommodate demand.

Parents tell us they love the atmosphere created by having staff and students from such diverse backgrounds. More than 40 flags hang in our atrium, representing all the nationalities in our school.

Our students appreciate it too – and visitors frequently comment on how happy and hardworking they are.

If you haven’t yet experienced what one parent described as Fairfield’s “little bit of magic”, please come and visit. You will be made most welcome.
