Welcome to Holy Cross School.

Since 1902 we have been at the heart of the Whitwick community. We are proud to be part of the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust which has 23 schools throughout Leicester and Leicestershire. Our motto, In the light of Jesus we Love, Listen and Grow underpins everything that we do as we strive to provide an excellent education within a caring and nurturing environment. We are a Catholic School, and welcome children from all faith backgrounds or of none. Our strong family ethos is evident in the generations of families that have been taught at Holy Cross over the years.

We are fortunate in having beautiful grounds which give plenty of opportunities for outdoor education, including in our Forest School. The pre-school is open to children from the age of three and we have before and after school care to support our working parents and carers.
