About Holy Cross Catholic Primary School

Holy Cross is an oasis in the middle of Catford in south east London. We are a one form entry, over subscribed primary school. Our children are delightful, keen learners with excellent behaviour. The staff are a happy and cohesive team. We have high standards for both children and staff and we always strive for the very best. Our last OFSTED inspection grade was Outstanding, as was our Section 48 inspection. We have a local sister school called St Augustine's and together we make Aspire London which is led by our Executive Headteacher, Mary Collins.

Following the promotion of our current Head of School the governors wish to appoint a Head of School to Holy Cross who has vision, leadership and management skills. They will work closely with the Executive Headteacher to drive the School forward. We are a vibrant, inclusive community with high expectations of all. Our children are happy, keen and motivated. They enjoy our rich and adventurous curriculum which instils in them a life-long love of learning.
We welcome a creative thinker who will lead our wonderful school forward with enthusiasm and a passion for learning. The successful candidate will need to be someone who inspires others and leads by example with love, laughter and compassion.
