Our School Name

Our school is named after the Holy Cross of Jesus. Many years after the crucifixion, the Emperor Hadrian ordered that Calvary should be hidden away and this was done with a great terrace of stone a hundred feet long which covered the place. This meant that for hundreds of years the cross of Jesus was lost.

St Helen, a British Princess, who became Empress of Rome through marriage, was concerned about finding the cross. At eighty years of age she went to Jerusalem to search for it and ordered that the terrace, built in the time of Hadrian, should be destroyed. Underneath, she discovered three crosses together.

The cross of Jesus was identified when a sick woman was instantly cured by touching it. Helen’s son Constantine, became a Christian leader through his mother’s example and was the first Christian Leader in the world.
