Welcome to Waltham Holy Cross Primary Academy and Nursery.




I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to all pupils, parents, and visitors to our school's website. As the Head of School, I am honoured to introduce you to the vibrant world of Waltham Holy Cross. Based in Waltham Abbey, our school is very special – a happy and safe environment in which our children can learn, grow and develop into confident and successful young people.

We are delighted to be part of the NET Academy Trust. The key aim of NET Academies Trust is to promote and lead innovative practice to help raise educational outcomes for all pupils. 

At Waltham Holy Cross, we are dedicated to providing a nurturing and enriching educational experience for every pupil. Our committed and caring staff team strive to create a dynamic learning environment where curiosity is ignited, talents are nurtured, and potential is realised.

As you explore our website, you'll find valuable information about our academic programs, engaging curriculum, extracurricular activities, and the various opportunities that await our pupils. Our goal is to empower pupils to excel academically while fostering their personal growth and development.

We believe in the power of collaboration and open communication. Parents and guardians, your partnership is essential to the success of our pupils. We encourage you to actively engage with us, ask questions, and be part of our school community.

To our pupils, I encourage you to embrace the journey ahead with enthusiasm and a thirst for knowledge. This is a place where you'll not only gain an education but also forge lifelong friendships and create cherished memories.

We warmly welcome parents, carers and visitors into the school. If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, your child’s class teacher will be happy to make an appointment to see you. The senior team are also available before and after school each day and we are happy to help in any way we can. Alternatively, please feel free to speak with the school office about any queries you may have or contact me or one of the Deputy/Assistant headteachers via the School Office on 01992 713 191. 

Whether you are a parent of a pupil, or are considering joining us, we hope you’ll find all the information you need here. If you are considering enrolling your child at Waltham Holy Cross, please contact our school office to arrange a visit and to meet with me.

I look forward to a successful and inspiring academic year at Waltham Holy Cross. Together, we will continue to uphold the values of excellence, respect, and integrity that define our institution.

Welcome once again to Waltham Holy Cross, where every day is an opportunity to learn, grow, and shine.

Warmest regards,

Sarah Clarke
