Our curriculum is broad and dynamic, delivered by exceptional teachers, supported by a nurturing Catholic ethos, enjoyed by all in our eight glorious acres.  We are proud of our outstanding facilities which offer prep girls the best provision in art, computing, drama, music and sport surrounded by other girls and families who value and support a quality education – your daughter will achieve more than she ever thought possible. Success and expectations are very high at Holy Cross; we are moderately selective and each pupil embarks upon an individual learning journey tailored to discover and develop their own talents and interests.
