Head Teacher's Welcome
I am delighted to welcome you to Sacred Heart High School. We are a school founded on the values, ethos and traditions of the Society of the Sacred Heart and are part of a worldwide network of schools around the world. Pupils and staff benefit enormously from our global links as part of exchanges and networks. The school has a 330 year tradition of contributing to the education of women and became a Sacred Heart school in 1893.
Everything we do at Sacred Heart is encompassed in our five goals of Sacred Heart education:
A personal and active faith in God
A deep respect for intellectual values
Social awareness which impels to action
Building community as a Christian value
Personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom
Our website is the ‘window to our world’. As you enter and look around you will gain information about our school and the work it does to foster our vision and mission for the young women we educate. You will see examples of the many exciting opportunities we provide for our pupils helping them to grow in their faith and pursue academic excellence through our curriculum offer and the wide range of enrichment supporting their wider personal growth and development.
Use our website to keep up to date with the latest news and forthcoming events and make use of our social media links for news as it happens.
I end with a quote from one of our foundresses of the Society of the Sacred Heart: ‘We must bring home to our children and to ourselves also, the responsibilities for our gifts. We must put our talents at interest and not bury them in the earth and reason is sufficient, that they are God’s.'
