Headteacher's Welcome

The Holy Family Catholic High School is a small, oversubscribed and genuinely inclusive secondary school located in Carlton, North Yorkshire. Our aim is to provide an outstanding education for all children irrespective of background or prior attainment.

We are proud of our Catholic ethos which we believe, sets us apart from other schools locally. Our mission is to help all pupils ‘to increase in wisdom and grace’ by working in genuine partnership with parents and carers to provide an outstanding education for all pupils that allows each one of them to achieve their potential academically, develop personally and grow spiritually. The school is much more than a family in name and is recognised widely as a warm and caring community where each pupil is recognised and valued as an individual and nurtured to achieve their full potential.

We encourage all our students to use their God-given talents to be the best they can be and as a result, pupils leave with the qualifications, key skills and attributes they need to not only prosper personally but also, contribute to society and to the common good.

The school houses a Local Authority Enhanced Mainstream Provision (EMP) that supports children with communication and interaction difficulties. The school is rightly proud of the strong reputation it holds locally for the quality of its SEND provision.

This year we have begun in earnest our improvement journey towards outstanding, and whilst we are committed to achieving this ambition on behalf of all our pupils we are not complacent. There is still work to be done and there are challenges ahead but we will respond to these challenges directly, without compromise and in the knowledge and love of God.

'Together we step out in faith, weathering the storms that may challenge us, confident that Christ is with us and united as a holy family.'

If you'd like to find out more about us or come for a look around, please do get in touch.

I look forward to welcoming you personally to Holy Family.

Mrs D.Mitchell
