School Ethos

Sacred Heart School is founded upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ, His teachings and values as seen in the light of the tradition of the Society of the Sacred Heart. The Society has always devoted itself to promoting education and the pursuit of academic excellence.

Each student is entitled to a curriculum which is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated to suit their individual needs. The school aims to encourage and challenge each student to achieve their full potential. Within this broad framework our aim is that they will:-

  • Be respected for their personal worth and dignity as a person and be supported and cared for appropriately

  • Be helped to develop a broad vision of the world, an awareness of environmental issues and a willingness to express concern in action
