For prospective parents looking for a school place for September 2023, the information in this page should provide some useful information to help you make your decision about which school is best for your child. 

Parents are welcome to arrange a visit to the school by contacting the school office directly.  However, we hope that this page will give you enough information about Holy Family and help you to make the choice of  Nursery or Reception setting that is right for your child.

We are a one form entry Catholic school.  We are a worshiping as well as a learning family and we come together each day to pray and to know God in our own lives.  We welcome children and families of all faiths and none but we share the love that Jesus has for each one of us through our care for one another.
