Holy Rood Catholic Primary School

A welcome from the headteacher


Welcome to Holy Rood Catholic Primary School. We are a thriving and active Catholic school community situated on the outskirts of Watford, serving the Catholic parishes of Holy Rood and St Helen’s. 

It is our aim for each and every child who becomes a Holy Rood pupil to find enjoyment, happiness, friendship and fulfilment throughout their days with us. We will strive to uncover the talents, interests and God- given gifts of each child; get to know them and understand them as individuals and build a curriculum around them that is rich and engaging.

Set within a fantastic site that encompasses both large open green spaces and historic woodland, we are fortunate to be able to offer our pupils the ideal place to learn, explore, play and grow.

I hope that you enjoy browsing our website and that it gives you a taste of what life here at Holy Rood is like! Thank you for taking an interest in our school. 

Warmest wishes,

Stephen Wheatley                                                                                                                                                                      Executive Headteacher
