Holy Family Catholic Academy is a ‘good school’, ‘standards are increasing rapidly’ and the ‘academy makes a strong contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of students’ – OFSTED June 2015 Ofsted June 2015
Welcome to Holy Family Catholic Academy
Holy Family Catholic Academy (HFCA) is a small, expanding, inclusive secondary school which places the student at the heart of our provision. Our Catholic ethos set us apart from other schools locally. We are proud that all our staff knows every student, we offer small class sizes and an inclusive pastoral ‘wrap-around’ care for all our students.
HFCA has outstanding facilities and industry links for Engineering. As a pioneering member of WISE (Women in Science and Engineering). We champion girl’s achievement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects.
Our established excellence in Performing Arts saw us crowned as 2014 national champions in the prestigious Performing Arts competition the ‘Global Rock Challenge’. We are firmly established as a Premier League School for Performing Arts.
Not only do parents choose HFCA with the knowledge that their child is known, valued and cared for, we set and meet the most aspirational academic targets for our students. For example we significantly increased the proportion of students achieving A*/A grades in summer 2015.
I personally tour the academy with visitors and prospective parents on a weekly basis. All visitors are impressed with the quiet and calm atmosphere for learning. If you would like to come and visit the academy please do not hesitate to contact me.
