School Information

Principal's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Holy Cross Catholic Primary School.  We are an over-subscribed one class intake school situated on a lovely site with substantial grounds that include a large playing field, a forest area and an additional outdoor learning area surrounded by meadow grounds.

Holy Cross School is part of the St John Paul II Multi-Academy Company, along with three other equally successful local Catholic schools: St Joseph’s Catholic Primary, St Nicholas’ Catholic Primary and Bishop Walsh Catholic Secondary School. As part of this partnership, we work together to share good practice; staff expertise and to further strengthen the provision and new opportunities for our children.

The life of the school is centred upon the mission statement:

We share in Christ’s life so He can guide our thoughts, words and actions.’

As a Catholic school we pride ourselves on the positive ethos we create; each child is recognised and respected and his/her contribution is valued and rewarded.  To support our school aims we have a strong spiritual life celebrated in prayer, liturgy and through the weekly celebration of Mass.

Our children are extremely well behaved and with the support of the close partnership between home and school, achieve high standards.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website which includes all the essential information about our school as well as the class ‘blogs’ showing what exciting events and activities have been taking place. Our school offers challenging, creative and enriching experiences; our children love learning!

We look forward to welcoming you and your children to our school family.
