The Holy Family School

Headteacher’s Welcome

The Holy Family Catholic School is a Catholic 11-18 High School (NOR 928, including 141 in 6th Form), which serves the Parishes and communities in and around the districts of Keighley, Haworth, and Skipton.

Our school is based on three basic principles:


  • Awakening our minds

Our Faith is central to all that we do at the Holy Family School. The teachings of Christ sit at the heart of our ethos and provide a basis for all aspects of our daily life. We believe this strong foundation helps us to strive for excellence in every task, as well as fostering compassion, moral responsibility and a sense of justice.

  • Achieving dreams

Our Work combines world class teaching, independent learning and strong pastoral care. Our school is safe, disciplined, stimulating and contemporary. Our approach allows students to have increased opportunities gaining a real sense of fun, joy and fulfilment.

  • Serving others

Our Spirit allows our young people to play an active and effective role in society. Our students are concerned for their fellow man and are prepared for today’s world.

I am very proud of the strong bonds of trust between parents, students and staff to support our vision, helping young people use their actions to reveal the truth about God, Christ and Spirit.
