Welcome  to  the  Holy  Name  Website

School is now closed for the Summer Holidays.

The last school week was filled of saying goodbye's/moving on Mass and End of Key Stage Assemblies.

It was very emotional on Friday 18 July there was so many tears shed by children, parents/carers and staff alike, saying goodbye to children, parents and work colleagues. 

There were a few parents who had finished, a long association with Holy Name with having a child at the school but we welcome visits from you ALL who have moved on as you are still part of Holy Name family.

On behalf of all the staff I would like to thank you all for the cards and many, many presents that appeared at Holy Name over the last few weeks.

THANK YOU ALL.  Have a safe and happy holiday.
