Holy Cross Girls� School, Ardoyne Road, Belfast


In Holy Cross Girls' we offer a child centred education. Every child is encouraged to attain her potential, academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our dedicated staff deliver a broad, balanced curriculum using a variety of teaching styles to suit the individual needs of the children.

We take our task very seriously and assure you that we encourage the same high standard from your child as you do yourself. With your help we want your daughter to succeed in her school work and grow up to become a happy, healthy, moral, responsible and confident young person.

Central to our ethos is our Catholic identity. We have strong links to our parish and have dedicated priests to help prepare the children for the sacraments.

We are an all inclusive school and welcome children from other faiths and cultures.

Holy Cross Girls' welcomes and expects the whole hearted support and involvement of parents. With their co-operation and with the professional commitment of the teachers our children are encouraged to reach the highest possible standard and be the very best that they can be.

We are proud of the "Outstanding" grade awarded to the school at our ETI inspection March 2015.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to show prospective parents around our school, where the atmosphere and variety of activities can be experienced first hand.

Mrs Maura McNally

Leavers' Mass 2018

On Friday we had our Leavers' Mass when the children in our school came together to celebrate the contribution the P7 girls have made to the school over the past seven years.

We had joyful singing and instrumental music as well as a poem read by Mrs Owens, full of beautiful sentiments for the girls. This brought a tear to many an eye!

While it is time for our P7 girls to move on, their parents presented the school with a beautiful piece of art work as a memory of the girls' time with us. This will take pride of place in the school.

We wish our girls good luck in the future and thank the parents for the thoughtful sentiments and comments made to the staff in appreciation of their work.

Thank you all.

Grandparents' Day 2018

It was wonderful to see so many grandparents and family members attend our Grandparents' Day Service. They joined with us to pray and sing before visiting the children in their classrooms and have a cup of tea to catch up with friends. Thank you all for making the day so special.
