Catholic Life and Mission

Holy Cross Sixth Form College and University Centre is a Catholic college where history has endowed us with a clear tradition of caring for all who work and study here. A Catholic College is a centre of community, life and study which strives to be genuinely and fully human. It is a place where people can learn, grow and develop while feeling at home and valued. The College aims to offer to all, especially the poor and marginalised, the opportunity of an education, of training for a job, of human and Christian formation.

Focus of Each Individual

The spirit of the Gospel is at the heart of our way of life, relationships and community. Thus we affirm the value of each member of the College's community - whether student or employee - and have concern for the whole person and the uniqueness of the individual. This entails sharing each other's strengths and being sensitive to one another's weaknesses, as well as striving for the highest expectations of personal growth and achievement.

The R.E. department and the Chaplaincy are an integral part of college life providing students and staff with opportunities to develop spiritually, morally and intellectually. We are proud of our Catholic tradition whilst also welcoming students and staff of all faiths. Our Mission Statement reflects on our commitment to deliver education in a manner which encompasses Gospel values.
