Catholic Life

School Mission Statement
Our mission statement is at the very heart of our school life, permeating and influencing all that we strive to do.

“We are the Children of God, and in the spirit of St Francis and Mother Bernarda, we aim to create a happy family environment in which all may grow: In faith, hope and love for God, in love and respect for one another and the world around us, in learning and wisdom, so that we may live life to the full and joyfully share this life with others, especially those who are in any way disadvantaged.”

“The Holy Cross School is an Outstanding Catholic school because: Pupils are enabled and encouraged to grow and flourish as full members of a Catholic Christian community in which all are welcome. It recognises and celebrates its Holy Cross and Franciscan heritage while pursuing a contemporary Catholic education mission.”
