Together we grow in God’s love

Class Saints

As a reminder that we are called to be saints and live a life of holiness, each class is named after a saints that is linked to our year curriculum.


The children begin each academic year by learning about their class saint's life, why they are a good role model and how, through their example, we might become closer to Christ ourselves.


This means, that by the end of their time at St. Cross School, they come to know about the lives and work of some saints and can leave our school taking guidance from how our class saints lived their lives to make

Christ known to all.
