New Intake 2020

Welcome Year 6s to Holy Cross!

28 August 2020 – PE Kit Delivery Issues Update

We are aware that there is an issue with PE kit especially for our new Y7 pupils.  Please click here to view our latest guidance and procedures for the start of term.

Normally we would get the opportunity to spend time together in July so that you can get a feel for life in high school. Sadly, this isn’t currently possible. However, all the staff and pupils of Holy Cross want to make this transition as easy as possible for you as we all get ready for the new academic year.

On this page you will find many resources to give you a better idea of what life is like at Holy Cross.

We have messages from several of your teachers, along with our current Head Boy and Head Girl. We also have some sample lessons to help give you an idea of what you will learn in your first year with us.

We do hope that you enjoy what we have here and that you will get involved. You can send your work in and photos/videos to and we will make a fantastic display for when you start in September and we will put on our twitter site.

We look forward to meeting you fully in September.
