Why choose us

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision and I hope that the information contained within this website will assist you.

Holy Cross is a school where we all work together to give the best possible start in school life for each child.  Our Mission Statement below is at the heart of all we do.

Jesus is the centre of our lives,

Our learning and friendships,

In a safe, happy and caring community

Where all are welcome.

As a Catholic school we place God at the centre of our lives, and we delight in the achievements of our pupils, however big or small.  We take pride in promoting Christian values and principles, and helping children to realise that they are unique and special.



There are times when you may arrange to visit Holy Cross.  You are most welcome to bring your son/daughter with you.  Please contact Mrs Karen Slater on 01279 424452 or via email to arrange an appointment.
