The head teacher

"Dear young people, do not be mediocre;

the Christian life challenges us with great ideals," 

(Pope Francis)

Welcome to our website and thank you for taking the time to have a look. Holy Family Catholic Academy (HFCA) opened in September 2013 and is located in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire. We are a small and inclusive academy where all students and their families are offered a warm welcome.

Our Catholic ethos sets us apart from other academies locally. We consider ourselves a family where each student is recognised and valued as an individual and as Head Teacher I am proud to say I know every one of my students by name. At HFCA our mission is to work in partnership with parents/carers as primary educators, providing a high quality education that allows all students to achieve their potential academically and as a person. We encourage all our students to use their God given talents to be the best they can be and urge them not to be afraid to dream of great things!

With personalised support and excellent teaching, our students leave with the qualifications, key skills and personal attributes they need to succeed in work and life.

If you'd like to find out more or come for a look around, just get in touch. Tours of the Academy can be arranged; simply contact Tracy Farr, PA to Head Teacher, to arrange a time to suit you. Telephone 01472 328433/Email info@hfca.co.uk.'

I look forward to seeing you.
