We view every individual as unique, and we encourage and support every student to become the very best version of themselves.

Sacred Heart High School is committed to providing a world class education for all students. Our mission statement recognises the value and worth of the individual pupil and it is this which lies at the heart of our Curriculum.  

Our broad and rich academic curriculum includes a range of different pathways, to suit all our students. We encourage our students to be independent thinkers, to challenge conventional wisdom and to take responsibility for their own learning, working with others and making an active contribution to the life of the school.  We actively promote engaging and dynamic student learning experiences shaped by best practice research, essential to securing successful outcomes for students of all abilities.   Assessment approaches which are creative, adaptive and vibrant are key to this process.  Successful learning occurs when learners have ownership of their learning, when they understand the goals they are aiming for; when crucially, they are motivated and have the skills to achieve success.

Effective assessment ensures that we remain true to our Mission Statement:

Challenging and supporting each other to achieve our full potential and to develop gifts and talents for the service of other'

'Creating a well ordered, stimulating, secure and encouraging learning environment…offering a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the needs of each student.’

The school recognises the essential role of the parent/carer in maximising pupil potential.  It strives, therefore to utilise every opportunity to share with parents, information and processes and to support each individual pupil.
