Welcome to our school.
“Holy Cross opened its doors to the children of the Parish of Whitwick in 1902.
For over 100 years it has been serving all of the families of the area, Catholic and non Catholic and we are proud to have educated several family generations. As an integral part of the village we provide learning for children from 3 to 11 years of age for both boys and girls and all abilities.
Last year we were inspected by Ofsted and our Catholic Diocese. In both inspections we were rated as "Good." In both the inspectors made several comments about the excellent behaviour of our children as well as the high standard of learning in our school. Ofsted stated, "There is a strong sense of community in the school." Our Canonical Inspectors said, "The strength of the positive relationships fostered within the community is a strength of the school."
We are very proud of these judgements as the happiness and welfare of our pupils is of the utmost importance.
In July 2012 the school converted to Academy Status and we are now part of the Blessed Cyprian Tansi Academy Trust. Christ is the foundation of our school and our academy and all that we do reflects the Christian message.
The motto which underpins all that we do is; "In the Light of Jesus we Love, Listen and Grow."
We hope you enjoy exploring our website and hope you gather the information you need.”
