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.

January Closure

Dear Parents,

As you may be aware, we have received some communication from the Education Minister, Peter Weir, that schools will not be opening as expected this week.

I understand that this follows the Minister receiving updated advice on the current public health situation, the deteriorating nature of the pandemic and the risks to public health.

In line with the advice received:

  • Wednesday 6th January will be used by staff for planning and preparation of remote learning via Seesaw for all pupils
  • Children will be taught online from Thursday 7th January 2021; their attendance percentage will not be affected. Please ensure that your child logs on to Seesaw on Thursday morning, if you have technical difficulties please contact me by email or telephone.
  • The Minister anticipates that face -to-face teaching will resume on Monday 11th January for all primary school pupils.

Schools have been instructed to accommodate vulnerable children and the children of key workers for supervised learning from the original start date of Term 2. Pupils who avail of this will be engaged in the same activities and tasks as those at home, there will no face-to-face teaching. This is to facilitate teachers providing remote learning for those at home.

As the health and safety of our school community remains our priority, we ask that you explore any other options you have and only use school as a last resort.

If your child meets the criteria and you wish to avail of the supervised learning, please email me before 12 noon on Wednesday 6th January 2021

( so that arrangements may be put in place.

While this is not the New Year message I had hoped to be writing, I hope it clarifies what we have been instructed to do as a school.

On behalf of the whole school community, I pass on our best wishes for a happy, healthy, brighter 2021,

Mrs K Owens

BBC Children in Need Choir 2020

We were so delighted that one of our P6 pupils was chosen to represent Northern Ireland in the BBC Children in Need Choir this year. She worked extremely hard over the Hallowe’en Mid-term and really enjoyed the experience of studio recording. We are very proud of her and the BBC crew were very impressed with how well she conducted herself throughout the whole project.
