What the school says...

Sacred Heart High School is an outstanding school in all aspects of its delivery in promoting a holistic Catholic education for girls aged 11 -16.

Pupils experience a broad curriculum offer at Key Stage 3 and are offered a selection of options at Key Stage 4 in addition to the core curriculum offered. The school offers a wide enrichment programme for pupils including trips abroad, extra curricular activities in music, drama, sport, debating, science, and maths to name a few.
