Welcome to our website. Holy Cross is a voluntary- aided school in the Archdiocese of Liverpool and has maintained status within St Helens Local Authority. We are a small, friendly school where children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate and to use their abilities to the full. We provide a calm, happy atmosphere and set high standards of respect, courtesy, hard work and achievement for all children and adults.
At Holy Cross, we strongly believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success.
We strive to promote the values of our Christian faith throughout our daily life.
Our school motto is ‘We Care, We Share, We Value’. We provide a religious syllabus which develops our children’s knowledge and understanding of our faith. Our pupils attend Mass throughout the year, held both in school and in Holy Cross Church .
We have an enthusiastic, highly motivated staff committed to a caring, child-centred Christian ethos. We offer skilled teaching and high academic standards as well as concentrating on the education of the whole child.
As parents, you are the prime educators of your child and I hope that our website will be a way of keeping you informed about the teaching and learning in your child’s class, giving ideas of how to support him/her at home. I hope it will provide you with a ‘feel’ for the life and work of the school and its caring and friendly atmosphere.
When you choose to place your child in the care of Holy Cross School, we feel honoured and privileged. We seek to offer the highest quality of care and education, and provide your child with the personal and academic skills to access the next stage in their education.
