What The Good Schools Guide says..
The school itself feels more alive, with walls now adorned with colourful canvases of the girls at work and many inspirational quotes.

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. Together with its Mission Statement the school ethos is underpinned by the goals of Sacred Heart education founded by St Madeleine Sophie Barat - these are Faith, Intellect, Community, Formation of Character and Social Awareness that impels to action. 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.

Before that, she taught English and RE at Haggerston School, Hackney, Phoenix High School, Hammersmith and latterly Holland Park School, Notting Hill Gate. A world away from the previous head (a deeply traditional woman who reigned for 23 years with what girls describe as a combination of awe and fear), Doyle is softer around the edges and fresher in her outlook.
