A Catholic School

We celebrate our Catholic traditions as a community and have a special relationship with the Parishes of Sacred Heart and English Martyrs. We encourage our pupils to ‘live their faith’ and work together to raise thousands of pounds for charity. This work gives our pupils the opportunity to reach out and support not only their local community but also the needy elsewhere in the world.

We have developed a very close link with an orphanage in Thailand and pupils apply to take part in what is known to them as our ‘Mission to Thailand’. Every two years a school journey is organised allowing a group of our students to go and work with orphans and street children at the Father Ray Foundation in Pattaya.

As well as daily prayers, regular Masses and retreats, we have very close links with our local parishes and community. The successful completion of the joint refurbishment and creation of the Sixth Form/Parish Centre exemplifies our close links and commitment to the Catholic education of young people.

 

A supportive and disciplined community

Sacred Heart Catholic School is a united and happy community with a clear sense of purpose and direction. We promote a culture of respect for self and others and we have a very strict, traditional and rigorous approach to discipline. Our pupils receive consistent messages about good behaviour, appearance, manners and trust. They learn to take responsibility for themselves and to understand their duties as good citizens. We want them to set high standards in their own communities and to learn how to lead others with dignity and determination.
