Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic Primary School

We are an Academy School based on Queen’s Drive (near the magic roundabout in Swindon).  We currently have students aged from 4 – 9 (Reception to Year 4) in our school.

The staff of the school is committed to creating a caring school community which aims to improve the work that it does in the service of the Church.

We recognise that a good home/school/parish partnership is important in helping all our children to reach their full potential.  The school operates within a multi academy trust alongside St Joseph’s Catholic College who are our link secondary school.

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


Our school serves the parishes of Holy Rood, St Peter’s (West Swindon), St Joseph’s, Wroughton and the Sacred Heart (Royal Wootton Bassett). We pride ourselves on being a progressive, vibrant, learning community which highly values its cultural diversity. The children at Holy Cross are taught by an experienced and dedicated team of professionals with an aspiration of ensuring that learning is fun and teaching is creative. Children are taught in a happy, well-disciplined environment and are inspired to see learning as a lifelong experience.

Our school site has pleasant ground with our own field, adventure play area and large playground. The school opened in September 2015 and currently houses Reception, Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 students in a modern, excellently resourced building with its own dedicated IT suite.

We have extensive links with local community organisations and a school in Poitiers, France and an active Parent & Friends Association.
