Spiritual Life

Holy Cross Prep welcomes all faiths and cultures, and all widely-practised, major religions are taught across our varied RE curriculum.

As a Catholic school, our mission statement is guided by the vision and teachings of the Sisters of the Holy Cross – click here to learn more about the Sisters’ order.

Parents are invited to attend Mass, which takes place every third Wednesday. We also host a weekly prayer group for parents, led by Sr Ursula, who taught here for many years and visits often to provide additional support and pastoral care for the girls.

Our dedicated prayer room (below) invites pupils and staff to find quiet moments for peace and reflection.

We publish regular updates about spiritual events and celebrations, including Catholic holy days – you can read more below.
