Welcome to Holy Family Catholic School and Sixth Form


Holy Family Catholic School and Sixth Form, formerly known as the Holy Family Technology College, is a very popular mixed secondary school with just under 1100 pupils aged 11-19. We are a specialist Technology College with excellent resources for teaching across the curriculum. All pupils are offered every opportunity to expand their knowledge through after school and homework clubs, school visits, etc.

The school has very close partnerships with parents through the Friends of Holy Family, helping to reinforce the Catholic ethos and the partnership between home, school and parish.

The achievements of our students and staff have been praised in a recent Ofsted report. The whole report can be read by downloading it from this link, while the following extract from that report summarises the main points:

Extract from Ofsted report 2014

Pupils’ and students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strong feature of the school’s work. This contributes hugely to the sustained good results at the end of Year 11 and to mature young people in the sixth form.

Teaching over time is mostly good and some of it is outstanding. It is underpinned by a strong approach through which teachers and students share a love of learning and this secures good progress for all learners.

Senior leaders, staff and governors are totally committed to the common goal of providing high quality education.

Pupils behave well, underpinned by a common approach which stresses responsibility and kindness towards others as well as towards oneself.”

We are fortunate to have a thriving sixth form centre and we accept applications to our sixth form from our own Yr 11 students and also from students from other schools across the borough who would like to experience their sixth form education in a school based sixth form with a religious ethos.

We hope you find our website both informative and interesting.
