About Us

Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic Primary School. Our School serves the parishes of Holy Rood, St. Peter’s, West Swindon, St. Joseph’s, Wroughton and Royal Wootton Basset.

We are extremely proud to be an 'Outstanding' Catholic school in which both children and adults are supported and encouraged to develop their own faith and spirituality. 

We pride ourselves on being a progressive and vibrant learning community which highly values it’s cultural diversity. Students at Holy Cross are taught by an experienced and dedicated team of individuals with an aspiration of ensuring that learning is fun, and teaching is creative.

Children are taught in a happy and well-disciplined environment and are inspired to see learning as a life long experience.

We want the children to “work hard and to be happy”.


Holy Cross Primary School is a Catholic School. We seek to provide a broad, balanced Christian education which aims to help each child develop their full potential.

We are a worshipping community which recognises the uniqueness of the individual and aims to promote the Gospel values of love and respect for God and one another. We open ourselves to others and respect their ways of thinking and living.

The school encourages effective communication and good relationships with home, parish and the wider community.
