Holy Name Catholic Voluntary Academy is situated opposite the Holy Name Church on Otley Old Road, and it primarily serves the Parish Community. Details of the official catchment area can be obtained from the school.

We work closely with the families of our pupils and with the parishioners to ensure that they achieve their full potential spiritually, academically, morally, physically, emotionally, behaviourally and creatively.

Children leaving the school will be able to contribute to society in a positive, active manner, and within a Christian context.

Confirmation Preparation

As you will be aware, the Bishop has announced that Confirmation
preparation will eventually take place in primary schools. To
accommodate this transition, this year any student in Year 8 or Year 9 (or over) is able and hereby invited to take part in this year’s
Programme. The course will begin on Sunday 4th December at 4pm in St Mary’s Primary School hall with a meeting for candidates and parents.

This will be followed by the first session on the same afternoon (for
candidates only) from 4.30 to 5.30pm. Subsequent sessions will be held in the New Year across all three Churches/Church Halls. If you wish to enrol for the Confirmation Programme, please complete an Application Form and hand it to the priest at the end of Mass or at one of the parish offices. The forms are available at the back of each church in the parish or can be downloaded from:
