School statusEdit

Until November 2018, it was a community school administered by Oxfordshire County Council. It joined John Mason School and Rush Common School to form the Abingdon Learning Trust[2], converting to an Academy.

Since 2005, Fitzharrys School has held the status of a specialist school for technology. The specialist school status is a joint partnership between the three state secondary schools in Abingdon: Fitzharrys, John Mason School and Larkmead School. As part of the change in status and increased funding many new investments have been made.
