The Holy Family Catholic School exists to provide a contemporary education rooted in traditional gospel values where we believe that Christ is at the heart of all of our endeavours inspiring us to excellence. Our community is one where a sense of justice, compassion, a commitment to service and moral responsibility pervade everything that we do. We aim to awaken students to the largeness of the world around them, give them a dream of human achievement and an active concern for the human predicament and in doing so reveal the truth about God, Christ and Spirit.
Our Catholic Ethos
The teachings of Jesus Christ are at the heart of our school community. The Sacraments, the Word of God, our behaviour towards each other, our care and friendship are all central to daily life in school. Students and staff have opportunities to continue their individual faith journeys through prayer and liturgy.
The Faculty Leader for Religious Education co-ordinates opportunities for worship throughout the year along with the school chaplain and chaplaincy team. We pray together each day; there is a voluntary Mass each week in the school chapel and the significant events in the
Church year are all celebrated. Our Christian faith is seen in action through the wide variety of events, groups and charitable activities with which our students can get involved.
Strong Community Links
The Holy Family Catholic School has very good links with all of the parishes that serve the school, as well as the Catholic primary schools and local secondary schools. Our Languages specialism has been a significant factor in the development of good educational, business and cultural links both locally and globally while our local educational partnerships enable Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 students to access courses in other institutions.
