The experience and enthusiasm of our teachers and support staff will ensure that our college aims (below) are achievable:

The college offers a full Entitlement Framework of subjects to students with up to 18 subjects at Key Stage 3, over 20 subjects at Key Stage 4, and almost 30 post-16 subjects. A wide range of exciting extra-curricular activities and clubs are available in the college for all age groups. The college is particularly strong in music, drama and sport.

Our pastoral system reflects the caring ethos of the college. We aim to ensure a safe environment for all our students. We strive to ensure that each person feels valued and so reaches their full potential academically, emotionally, spiritually and physically. This is achieved through the work of all staff. Holy Cross College is a modern twenty first century school designed to offer the very best in education in the years ahead.
