Ivan GaughanHoly Cross is a vibrant and welcoming school which is dedicated to the formation of successful and rounded young people.

Everything we do is rooted in our Catholic ethos.  We believe that young people flourish in a safe, caring and happy environment knowing that they are loved by God.  Our pupils are supported and challenged to achieve their best in every aspect of their lives.  As you browse the site, you will see various examples of the many ways our pupils thrive and succeed.

We are proud of our achievements, of our ‘Good’ Ofsted report and ‘Outstanding’ Diocesan report. There is always more to be done and our Governors and entire staff are focused on becoming ‘outstanding’ by all measures.

At Holy Cross our mission is based on John (10:10)

“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full”

At Holy Cross this means

Love God, Work Hard, Be Kind.

I hope this website gives you a flavour of life and learning at Holy Cross.  If we can provide any further information, please email us at or telephone us on 01257 262093.
