Year 13 leavers achieved an impressive set of A-Level & BTEC results in 2022. Our leavers should be proud of what they have achieved over their seven years at Sacred Heart High School and the contribution they have made to the school community and beyond.
You can read more about our results, in the 'Academic' tab above, but results are not the whole story!
What makes us special?
This is a caring and dynamic Sixth Form, offering a wide range of A Level subjects and some BTEC courses in a bespoke, smaller class size setting -because we are not vast, we take time to get to know and treat every Sixth Former as an individual. Thus, we can offer a level of guidance and care not available elsewhere. As a result, many of our Sixth Formers develop a close relationship with their Form Tutors and with the Head and Assistant Heads of Sixth Form. We pride ourselves on good communication with students and, very importantly, with their parents.
We provide excellent teaching - with a world-class designation as a High Performance Learning (HPL) school, recognising the potential of each individual student. Our care begins with the help we offer in choosing A Level and BTEC subjects and then continues in our close monitoring of academic progress. We help students, to reach their academic potential and then make the right decisions for the future.
We also offer a variety of enrichment and extracurricular activities, including trips; music events including battle of the Bands; sporting activities including our rowing club; and both Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
Our excellent pastoral care and guidance, is special at Sacred Heart and tailored to meet the needs of today’s young adults. in additional to Pastoral Support Managers, we also employ our owning house team of counsellors and psychotherapists.
We have dedicated Sixth Form facilities including reserved study areas and our extensive Sixth Form Common Room with a places to work but also sofas for more relaxed chats and socialising.
Sixth Form is very definitely a time for self-development and fun, and we offer a wide range of activities which reflect the emphasis we put on helping students to become happy, well-balanced and successful young people.
We believe the Sixth Form at Sacred Heart provides an excellent education and is the perfect stepping stone for university, college and life beyond full-time education. It is our aim that by the time that our Sixth Formers leave school, they have become mature, successful, well-rounded young people, with a strong set of moral values to guide them through adult life.
You can watch our short video made by sixth formers below and scroll further to see more about our individual courses.
We have a full programme of higher education activities throughout the sixth form, led by the higher education team. A variety of staff are on hand to help guide the choices girls will need to make. Tutors, departmental academic mentors, and higher education coordinators work together with the girls and parents to provide the support necessary; whether helping to complete applications, or preparing for interview.
We are proud to confirm that 66% of our leavers achieved their first university choice in 2019.
