Holy Cross is a Catholic High School established by the Catholic Community of the Chorley Deanery.
Here you will find lots of useful information for Holy Cross parents inculding terms dates, uniform and admissions.
Here at Holy Cross we have an extensive curriculum which is built around key stage 3 and key stage 4.
All the latest news, events and newsletters from Holy Cross.
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 email@example.com 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.
Sky Hawk Transition Project – Introduction Letter
During the early stages of Year 7, our English department focus on the novel Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis. To help with these lessons, you are asked to read the book during the summer term and undertake some tasks to help your learning.
We have lots of resources and an introduction to the book on our Sky Hawk Literacy Transition Project page. Take a look. We are sure you will really enjoy the story.
Miss Webster has put together a special reflection for you as we edge closer to your joining of Holy Cross.
We want to know as much about you as possible when you start with us in September. To help us do this, your teachers have created a Transition Booklet with lots of fun tasks included covering many different subjects you will cover in Year 7. Your parents will have been sent a copy of this through the post, but you can also download it here.
To help you get a feel for what a day is like at Holy Cross, a number of teachers have produced sample lessons for you to watch. Each video will give an introduction to that teacher along with information about the department. You will then be given a lesson on that subject looking at something you will cover in more depth during Year 7.
Each lesson also gives you the chance to try things from home. When you do, be sure to email photos or videos of what you complete to the address in the video. All the staff at school would love to see what you have been up to!
Looking for more great books to read over the summer? The English department have put together a list of great books that they think you will enjoy. Take a look at their recommended reading list here!
schudioTv have released a number of resources to help with the transition of children with special needs returning to school at the end of the pandemic. These materials require a registrtion, but all resources are free.
