Alternatively, please feel free to speak with the school office about any queries you may have or contact me or one of the assistant headteachers via the School Office on 01992 713 191.

Whether you are a parent of a pupil, or are considering joining us, we hope you’ll find all the information you need here. If you are considering enrolling your child at Waltham Holy Cross, please contact our school office to arrange a visit and to meet with me.
