Welcome to Holy Family Catholic High School, we are a school with a distinct ethos centred upon the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. The dignity of each person is at the heart of Catholic teaching; every student has their own individual strengths, gifts and talents; our aim is to ensure that these are all developed to their full potential. We look for excellence in all aspects of learning and we expect high standards of achievement from all members of the community.
We lead and innovate to make learning fun, challenging and distinctive. The relationships between teachers, students and parents are fundamental to the success of the school. Working together we ensure that students enjoy their time at Holy Family, make outstanding progress and leave us as responsible, well-qualified, mature young people; ready to make a valued contribution to society.
I believe HFS is a truly excellent school; it is a place where staff are proud to work, a place which Governors and parents are proud to support and a school to which students are proud to belong. I hope you find our website informative.
We are looking to present a window into the life of the school, an opportunity to share information and to celebrate our students and their successes. If you are a prospective parent, we would like to invite you to visit our school to form your own judgement. Please contact Mrs J Lemm who will be happy to arrange this for you. Thank you for your interest in our school.
Carlton pupils throw their all into the final stages of the Huntington Stadium, lovingly known as Ryedale.
Four students from Holy Family took part in the North Yorkshire athletics trials on Tuesday 5 May in pursuit of team representation. On a cool and blustery day, Holly Lloyd (shot), Gabriel Snowden (discus), Shona Kilgar (shot) and Georgina Armstrong(800m) gave their all on what would be one of the last times the stadium would be used.
Yr 7,8 and 10 have been practicing for the last two weeks in preparation for the tournament. On the only sunny day of the week the girls enjoyed some great play.
