Holy Cross Church of England Primary School was founded in 1850 by members of Holy Cross Church in Uckfield. In 2020, we celebrated 170 years since the school was founded. Today, the school continues to have strong links with its Founding Church, and we join Father John and his dog, Sophie for regular worship at Holy Cross Church.

At Holy Cross Church of England Primary School, we want all our pupils to imagine a positive future for themselves, trusting that they can achieve their dreams in life. Guided by our Christian Faith, we will support our pupils and school community to expand their horizons with hope, faith, confidence and compassion, believing that, “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

Our school motto is, ‘The first for dreams’ and our aim is to unlock each child’s potential, instilling in individuals the belief that they can achieve their future dreams and be successful in life.
