Welcome to
Holy Family Catholic Primary School
Per ardua ad astra


 'Holy Family is an outstanding Catholic school, valued by all members of its community who are committed to living their mission of ‘Achieving excellence for the glory of God’.

Section 48 Inspection – May 2023


On behalf of everyone at Holy Family Catholic Primary School I would like to welcome you to our website. This website is a window into what we do and what we are about. After browsing through, you will hopefully have gained an insight into life at Holy Family.


Our school only opened in 2012 and we are immensely proud of all that has been achieved since then: ‘Outstanding’ OfSTED Inspection (2014); two ‘Outstanding’ Section 48 Inspections (2016 and 2023) and school data that consistently places the school significantly above national and local authority averages. We are a very popular school within the local area and beyond, with waiting lists for all our classes.


We are highly successful because there is a commitment from the whole school community to living out our Mission Statement – ‘Achieving personal excellence for ourselves and the glory of God.’ This Mission Statement underpins all that we do at Holy Family.


We recognise that every child entrusted into our care is a divine creation, made in the image of God. Pupils at Holy Family know that they are loved and valued. As a result, we are able to have the very highest expectations for our pupils (and staff). Our pupils are happy and feel safe in our school environment and so we are able to expect the best from them. By marrying together an environment based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and our high expectations, our children can truly flourish and achieve personal excellence.


It is a privilege to lead a Catholic school and I am very fortunate to work alongside exceptional staff and dedicated governors. We serve a highly supportive parent body who work collaboratively with the school to ensure the best outcomes for our children.


I would be delighted to welcome you to see our school in action or share more information with you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly ( if I can be of any assistance.


Mr T.Doherty
