The Moran Trophy

'Catholic schools are established by the Church for Catholic children and young people, who, through baptism, have a right to an education in the Catholic faith. Catholic schools in their various forms are built on the foundations laid by previous generations of parents and clergy. We have inhertited this rich tradition of Catholic schools from them and are committed to handing it on to future generations.'


Our Catholic Schools - Their Identity and Purpose


The Moran Trophy is awarded termly to a child in the school that has made outstanding progress.


The trophy is named after the Moran family.


Tommy Moran became an 'observer' on the Governing Body in 2012. He then went onto become a Foundation Governor. He was part of the first Governing Body. He worked tirelessly in those early days and helped to build the foundations of this wonderful school. In his time on the Governing Body, he was part of the panel that appointed Mrs Rutherford, our first ever Deputy Headteacher and Mr Doherty as Headteacher.


Abigail, his daughter, joined with the first intake of children in September 2012. One of our founder children, the reason for our being. Beth then joined in 2014 and Meghan followed in 2015 – a ‘Holy Family’ family!

Sarah helped set up the initial PSA in Oct 2012 as Vice Chair. Sadly, this ceased in 2013 but as fundraising still needed to be done it got done through Sarah’s determination and considerable hard work. She was then asked to restart the Friends of Holy Family Association again a year later and was Chair until Easter 2017.

This trophy is to be a termly reminder of the commitment made by the Moran family - a commitment to make Holy Family School an outstanding Catholic school, a jewel within the community.


They Moran family have moved on and they have handed the baton onto all of us - children, parents, staff and governors.

Summer Term 2018


Charlie - Year 1


Charlie has been a joy to teach over the past two years, and I am delighted to present him with the Moran Trophy for this term. Charlie has made amazing progress this academic year. He is the youngest in his class, yet he demonstrates perseverance and determination that belie his young years. Over the course of the year, he has developed a positive, can do attitude to learning. This is evident in the work he carefully produces in class each day. He has built many strong friendships within the class and he always thinks of our school rules when playing with his peers. He loves reading for pleasure and discovering new things, qualities we should all aspire to. Thank you Charlie, for being such a kind, bright, funny member of our class. I wish you continued success for the future. Here is a quote from one of our favourite books, Oh, The Places You’ll Go:
You’re off to great places,
Today is your day,
Your mountain is waiting….
So get on your way!
