Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic High School

Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic High School, the sole provider of Catholic secondary education in the Chorley and surrounding area.

Holy Cross has a rich tradition of sporting and academic success and we are especially proud of our pastoral care which we believe is second to none:

“Many features of the school are outstanding, notably the arrangements for pastoral care and support. An exceptionally high regard for pupils’ personal development and well-being, coupled with a strong duty of care, are at the very core of the school’s success.” (Ofsted 2010)


Take some time to browse our website and get a real taste of life at Holy Cross and you will see many examples of our mission statement in action:

“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)
