See for yourself

We are blessed with eight acres of beautiful grounds, tucked away on the Coombe Estate (Kingston Hill). We have incredible facilities at our disposal, including our new £1.3M sports pitch and pavilion. You can learn more about our wonderful on-site facilities here.

From large-scale summer productions inside our wonderful curtain theatre to our action-packed Sports Day outside on the all-weather pitch, we host countless on-site events each year.

Not everything takes place on site… we enjoy visiting lots of fascinating places each year, including Winchester’s Science Centre & Planetarium and Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Click here to learn more about our varied programme of educational visits.


Ella Mae shares her wonderful, heartfelt poem, as she prepares to move on to senior school. Once a Holy Cross girl, always a Holy Cross girl!

Life in Lockdown

Following a challenging summer term amidst a backdrop of coronavirus, lockdown and social distancing (2020), we were delighted to receive positive feedback from our community, including a big ‘thank you’ from our pupils.

You have managed to support our learning and wellbeing during this difficult time. You have worked to help create a Holy Cross environment in our homes that kept us familiar with our school routine, our friendships and our spiritual background. You reminded us that we are strong, resilient girls. We are all part of the Holy Cross family and it is because of your care, love for our school and dedication that we are all together again. Thank you from all of our hearts.
