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

Christmas Charity Appeal

A big thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Charity Appeal. The children really got into the festive spirit in their jumpers, hats, socks and tinsel. The money raised will help the St Vincent de Paul Society support those who find this time of year a struggle. Thank you for your generosity.


Holy Cross Girls' Choir

Our choir sang beautifully at the Concert for Refugees in Holy Cross Church on Friday 21st October. For those of you not able to attend we decided to video them so you could share in their wonderful performance.
