Our Catholic School

Holy Cross Catholic Primary Academy is a Catholic school with capacity for 436 children and serves the parishes of St Luke' s and Holy Cross and  the Church of The Assumption, Mulberry Green. Pupils who are not members of these parishes or of other Christian denominations or other faiths are also accepted in line with our Admissions Policy. 

In welcoming your child into our school we offer them a Catholic Christian caring ethos where they can learn and develop in a secure environment.

We see the child as a special part of God's creation, with special gifts and talents. It is our aim to lead the child to promote his or her own learning and development, achieve high standards and have high expectations of themselves. Our responsibility is to help prepare the child to be a positive part of God’s creation and a responsible member of society.

The last Ofsted religious inspection recognised Holy Cross as an outstanding school where there is a happy caring community which provides a secure moral framework for the pupils.  It was recognised that the aspirations of the school’s mission statement are evident in the everyday life of the school and that links with our parish are strong. Our last three religious inspections have been outstanding. We continue to work with families, parish and diocese to provide the best possible support for our children in their learning, friendships and spiritual life within this Catholic Christian community.
