Holy Cross Primary

About Us

The history of Holy Cross dates back more than 100 years, the present school building celebrates its 50th birthday this year. In 2007 the school was extended to include four new classrooms, a new Nursery block and refurbished pupil toilets.

Holy Cross School Primary and Nursery Class has a well deserved reputation for providing high quality service to the community. Central to our success is our strong Catholic ethos and the commitment of our staff.

The process of education starts before children come to school and is continuous. We aim to work in partnership with parents and carers, as by working together we will enhance the learning environment for your child supporting them to develop intellectually, morally, physically and socially.

Holy Cross Primary has for many years enjoyed a reputation of high educational standards. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which allows each child to develop their knowledge and skills across their learning journey. We ensure that each pupil has the opportunity to develop a growth mindset to help foster a love of learning and an understanding that learning extends beyond school.

We have high but realistic expectations of our pupils, both in terms of working hard in class and life outside the classroom. We encourage our pupils to take care of their surroundings, to be helpful and polite and to consider the needs of others. We strive to ensure exceptional standards of care and welfare for all of our pupils.
