Sacred Heart School was founded in 1962. We work to ensure that our children have every opportunity to become the best they possibly can, in an environment which underpinned by gospel values. We achieve this with the overarching charism of the Mercy Sisters who founded our school.
The Board of Trustees, together with the staff and parent community work together to provide our children with the best possible primary education - academically, socially, spiritually, culturally and physically.
Our aim is to provide and support each child in developing the life skills needed, and to build confidence in their own abilities, in order to amke a difference in our world.
