About Me

  1. The Sacred Heart School, Kingdom of Bahrain, has been at the forefront of international education for over sixty-five years. Since its establishment in the 1940s, it has instilled in each of its students its core values of academic excellence, ethical behavior, and character formation. The school’s achievement in nurturing its students with these values is evident by the accomplishments of its former pupils. The vision of Education gears towards the full development of persons by instilling in them Moral/Spiritual values and forming responsible citizens, equipped to work to transform society. The Sacred Heart School was established in the 1940s by the Vicar Apostolic of Arabia. In 1953 it was entrusted to the care of the Comboni Missionary Sisters, who built an edifice of Love and Service amidst obstacles. The dedicated band of Sisters left no stone unturned to maintain an excellent standard in the school. They will always be fondly remembered. In 1970, the school began to train and enroll students for the Royal Society of Arts Examinations and, in 1972, for the General Certificate of Education Examinations. In 1974, the University of London chose the Sacred Heart School to conduct its examinations. In 2005, it was recognized as an official London Examinations, International Centre of learning by Edexcel International. The school progressed by leaps and bounds. It presently occupies two campuses retaining its original premises in Manama, where it houses its LKG classes in a pedagogically equipped building inaugurated in 1991. In 1978 the Junior classes and in 1989 the Senior classes were shifted to the newly built premises at Isa Town, on a land benevolently donated by the late Amir, Shaikh Isa Bin Salman Al Khalifa.
  2. Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart exists for girls—shy or boisterous, precocious, or cautious—who are poised on the thresholds of the rest of their lives. Today, we offer Houston girls what Sacred Heart foundress Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat offered the girls of France more than 200 years ago—a stimulating, enveloping, and elevating education from which girls emerge uniquely as formed and confident young women. In our intimately scaled classrooms—an 8:1 student-to-teacher ratio—your daughter expands her intellect, faith, conscience, and sense of self as part of our dynamic sisterhood. And she grows in knowledge, confidence, and ability as she learns, laughs and plays, sings, and prays with her friends. Our curriculum, culture, and worldview connect with and promote the Goals and Criteria of the international Sacred Heart Network. Our single-sex education ensures that our classes and community offer the support, challenges, and freedom that allow girls to shine. As a college-prep school, we send our graduates to top colleges across the country. We also match them to colleges where they will continue contributing to their campus and the local community, developing their strengths, and thriving academically and socially. These are your daughter's formative years. At Duchesne, she joins a diverse and vibrant sisterhood of girls' information. The mission of Duchesne Academy is to inspire and prepare young women to engage in a lifelong pursuit of their faith in God, intellectual vitality, social awareness, and action, the building of community and personal growth, in the living tradition of Sacred Heart education. The Society of the Sacred Heart has been educating girls and young women for more than 200 years since Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat founded the order in 1800 "for the sake of one child." At Duchesne, we draw upon the full force and range of our Sacred Heart heritage to help our girls form-wise hearts and sharp minds. As your daughter's learning universe fills with possibility, Duchesne surrounds her with an enlivening and intellectually serious community that propels her to develop her unmistakable voice and discerning mind. In our intimately scaled, all-girls classrooms, your daughter revels in an atmosphere of mutual discovery, discussion, and respectful debate. Her teachers and classmates know her heart and her mind. They provoke new perspectives on a classic text, new approaches to a math problem, and newfound joy in learning for its own sake. As she progresses through Duchesne, simple arithmetic grows into complex calculus. Reading and writing approach—even surpass—what is expected at many colleges. Research skills evolve with her age and capabilities. And her understanding of her ability to change and shape her future gains profound clarity. One of Duchesne's missions is to empower young women with technological fluency. Our curriculum offers and supports a fully integrated, advanced technology program of interactive classrooms and innovative teachers. Duchesne emphasizes mastery of analytical skills, computer concepts, and effectively using technology applications to communicate and solve various problems. Duchesne families often remark on the feeling of warmth and camaraderie they are greeted with every time they step on campus, a feeling that the school is a second home. We are undoubtedly inclusive and caring. We are also quite challenging in that a loving family expects the best from each child because they know how much potential resides within her. Within our enveloping Sacred Heart community, your daughter's formation means: Exploring her expansive relationship with God and forming a personal faith that guides her actions and helps her interpret the world. Immersing herself in original and challenging intellectual work and coming to know the joy and satisfaction that accompanies learning pursued its own sake. Developing an informed social conscience that impels her to put her knowledge and beliefs into meaningful action beyond the campus. Contributing her gifts and perspective to our dynamic community where she connects with classmates and teachers to construct a positive campus culture. Exercising the privilege of wise freedom, she earns and tests as she makes increasingly responsible and mature choices. View full school

SHA is a Catholic school but all faiths are welcomed. Currently, approximately 20% of the student body comes from other faith backgrounds. SHA offers more than $1,000,000 in financial aid and academic scholarships. SHA is a 1:1 school, equipping each student with an iPad to add another dimension to the academic program. The iPad allows students to create, research, compose, and connect. The athletic program has a rich tradition having earned 85 team state titles in its history.

Students have regularly scheduled appointments with their counselor each year however the counselors have an open door policy and welcome students and parents to make appointments with them if needed. The complete high school experience is more than just going to class. Our commitment to educating the whole person means that we understand the importance of providing experiences outside of the classroom that enriches the lives of our students. At Sacred Heart Academy, you can be yourself, discover your talents, strengthen your skills, and build lasting friendships. Our students work hard in the classroom, but they also like to have fun! We are dedicated to creating a nurturing environment of respect, acceptance, understanding, and inclusion that maximizes each person’s abilities and creates a diverse community. Diversity is a cornerstone of the campus community, and we celebrate each student’s uniqueness through several different clubs and events devoted to diversity.

Our commitment to educating the whole person means that we understand the importance of providing experiences outside of the classroom that enriches the lives of our students. At Sacred Heart Academy, you can be yourself, discover your talents, strengthen your skills, and build lasting friendships. Our students work hard in the classroom, but they also like to have fun! We are dedicated to creating a nurturing environment of respect, acceptance, understanding, and inclusion that maximizes each person’s abilities and creates a diverse community. Diversity is a cornerstone of the campus community, and we celebrate each student’s uniqueness through several different clubs and events devoted to diversity. Students can participate in Diversity Leadership Team, world language clubs, African American Voices, or the annual Sacred Heart Schools Multi-cultural dinner.
  8. Our school is a Catholic high school that was founded by Dr. Yao in 1969. In the beginning, our school was registered as Sacred Heart Industrial and Commercial Vocational Senior High School. Dr. Yao was the first principal. By 1971, the construction of the school buildings and school factories had been completed. The equipment for classrooms had also been purchased and teachers had been recruited. In 1971, our school had enrolled a total of 110 students for the three following courses: Synthetic Business, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Teachers have three characteristics: love, patience, and passion, and educate the youth, irrespective of background. Students also have three characteristics: concentration, peaceful mind and purity, and willingness to open up their minds for wisdom and follow the sage precursors. In 1972, our school was permitted to set up a night school. Since the establishment of the school, Dr. Yao went abroad many times to visit many different countries, such as the USA, Canada, West Germany, and Italy to raise funds to help develop the school. However, the job of raising funds became more and more difficult. Under such tough circumstances, we still tried hard and managed to complete Sacred Heart Building and the school gym to make our campus more efficient. Later, to follow the government’s policy of developing more Complete Schools and Comprehensive High Schools for Taiwanese students, we then included general senior high courses in 1990 and changed the school’s name to Sacred Heart High School. Therefore, our school could continue to provide students in Keelung with a superior education environment. Our founder, Dr. Yao retired in 1990 due to bad health. Our School Vision diagram is created from a skeleton of the School Logo the cross stands for the school’s belonging to the Catholic system. Love gives life to the spirit of the cross. When the cross is embraced by a red heart of love, this made a cast on its feature, the spirit of love, from the background vividly. Our school motto of love God, love country, loving parents, and love people also fulfills this spirit of the cross ─ meaning and mission of Love. Our School Vision diagram shows a way to pass on the Spirit of Love by adopting Education Love as a core, with the woven fabric of Virtues as a foundation, with anchoring four cornerstones of development - Multi-intelligences, International Vision, Pragmatic Practice to bring out our school Vision of establishing every Sacred Heart child's accomplishment. After his retirement, Mr. Shih Yi-Tsai, the former director of the Academic Affairs Office, was assigned to be the principal. Inspired by the sacrifice and selflessness of Dr. Yao, the staff of the whole school devoted every effort to improve the teaching quality and give the students the best education. Our school has made great progress in recent years. In 1995, we included junior high courses. Approved by the Ministry of Education, our school has become a Complete School. After the retirement of Principal Shih Yi-Tsai, Mr. Chih Yi-Chuan was appointed by the school board as the third principal in 2003. In 2009, the school board assigned the director of the Academic Office, Ms. Lu He-Fong, to be the fourth principal. In 2013, Ms. Yang Ru-Jing took over the responsibility and became the fifth principal. In the same year, our school’s name was changed to Fu Jen Sacred Heart High School. It was a new milestone for our school and Principal Yang will continue leading all the staff to overcome the new challenges in the future. Students’ Affairs Office is in charge of all aspects of the students’ school life including meals, uniforms, dormitories, school buses, and extracurricular activities. The office is also responsible for guiding students. The main job of Students’ Affairs is to focus on three dimensions-learning, volunteering, life caring, and moral education. These four important factors have helped make the campus a friendly, safe, and pleasant environment. We hope to see our students get well-educated and gain knowledge in this sound and the comfortable campus that we will provide to them. All the staff in Students Affairs Office will sincerely help every student cope with any problem they encounter in their school life.

  10. Welcome, and thank you for expressing an interest in our school! We hope that you, like thousands of young women who have called Sacred Heart their school since 1861, will also feel right at home here. Our student body, faculty, staff, and administration work hard to make it a warm and caring environment while keeping our teacher-to-student ratio low. This is just one of the ways that we ensure the personal, caring treatment of every Sacred Heart girl. You don’t have to take my word for it: watch one of our videos, My School, My Home, Sacred Heart, to see testimonials from some of our students visit us at any time by contacting Admissions to make an appointment or speak with our Enrolment Management Coordinator, Stephanie or sign up to be a Student-for-a-Day anytime that is convenient for you, and experience the school first-hand. When you visit our school be sure to ask about the Chromebooks for every student and Google Apps for Education our free online tutoring offered by GradeSlam and our French social sciences option for Secondary I students. You can also follow us on one of the school’s several social media feeds like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, to get a sense of the everyday life of the school and what it is to be a Sacred Heart girl. The Society of the Sacred Heart was founded in 1800 by Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat and The Sacred Heart School of Montreal is a member of the worldwide network of Sacred Heart Schools. Each school has the same five goals that govern our mission and guide our educational philosophy. From its inception, the Society of the Sacred Heart opened its doors to any girl, regardless of circumstance, who desired a Sacred Heart education. Moreover, unlike most advocates of girls’ education in the early nineteenth century, Sophie did not see her mission solely in terms of preparing young women either to be good wives and mothers or to enter a religious congregation. Her schools were rooted in a much broader vision: to deliver an education that would inspire young women to be agents of social transformation in their times. Today, our school prides itself on its commitment to social justice and empowering young women to take their place in an ever-changing world. Our current home on Atwater Ave. is the sixth home of the school since its inception in 1861. City House, as it is fondly known, is a building rich in history and equipped for the modern student. Rooted in tradition, but always evolving, The Sacred Heart School of Montreal aims to instill the values that Saint Madeleine Sophie so valued all the while promoting creative education and leadership framed by the five goals of a Sacred Heart education. The truly international character of a Sacred Heart School aids in fostering a global education and citizenship in our girls. The Sacred Heart School of Montreal has undergone many changes since it opened its doors on Atwater Ave., in 1928. Although things may look different than they did all those years ago, the same warm, welcoming environment is contagious the minute you step foot inside its doors. The school participates in many public speaking, debating, creative writing, and other competitions, such as Poetry in Voice, Olympus de parole, World Scholar’s Cup, Student Stock Exchange (SSX), Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI), etc. The Advanced Placement Programme offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses in Secondary V. An AP course allows students to study a subject in greater depth, in close collaboration with a specially trained teacher. Students who earn a qualifying grade on an AP exam may receive credit or advanced placement when they enroll in CEGEP or university. AP courses are externally examined by the American College Board. Junior and Senior concert bands, as well as Show Choir, are part of a rich arts curriculum that includes theatre, visual arts in our Art Studio, film-making, and multimedia classes in our state-of-the-art film and multimedia studio. This award allows young people to determine what they are passionate about. There are four Sections of activities for all Award levels: Service, Skill Development, Physical Recreation, adventurous journey. The Award encourages young people to spend time volunteering in their community, which both benefits others and contributes to their growth and well-being. For gifted students with an aptitude for independent learning, the Faculty Scholars program offers the opportunity to pursue personal projects under the guidance of outside experts. Projects typically run the gamut from artistic and literary productions to historical and scientific research. A course built into student schedules that deals with the current issues facing adolescents such as online safety, transitioning to high school, CEGEP or grade 12 applications, sleep, stress, responsible decision making, healthy eating, and sexual education to name a few. These topics are addressed by subject experts from both within and outside the school. As of August 2019, The Sacred Heart School of Montreal will become one of a select few high schools in Quebec to offer a Grade 12 program. The program will be delivered online in conjunction with physical classes. Students will be able to choose between a Commerce and a Science stream. At the end of the one-year, full-time program, students will receive a Grade 12 diploma (OSSD) from the Ontario Ministry of Education, enabling them to apply to universities in Quebec, other Canadian provinces, the United States, and abroad. The accelerated program moves advanced Mathematics students through the secondary school curriculum in four years instead of five, allowing them to complete a Calculus course in Secondary V.

  12. It is important to us that every child develops their Catholic faith and reaches their full potential as they grow to be caring, responsible citizens. At Sacred Heart School ‘Every Heart is Sacred’ and with this in mind, the school community endeavors to reflect the love that Jesus has for us, and treat each other with the respect and kindness that we each deserve. This underpins the children’s development, socially, emotionally, and academically and is evident whenever you meet a child at Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart is an outstanding Catholic primary school where ‘Every Heart is Sacred’. The school offers a distinctively Catholic education based on our faith, our moral values, and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our lives. This ethos drives all that we do, and all who choose to enroll their children at Sacred Heart. At Sacred Heart, it is expected that all members of the school community will reflect the love that Jesus has for us. We aim to ensure that all children achieve the highest possible standards in a creative, happy, and secure environment. We value parents and carers as partners in education and involve them and the wider community in the life of the school. The school will grow and change but we remain true to our vision. The school is strongly supported by the parish community in moral, spiritual, and practical terms. Sacred Heart RC Primary School is a Catholic School in the trusteeship of the Diocese of Salford. It is a voluntary aided school. The Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking all decisions on applications for admissions. The coordination of admissions arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority. For the school’s year commencing September 2018, the Governing Body has determined that the number of children to be admitted to Reception, Year 1,2,3, and 4 will be 45, and Year 5 and 6 will be 30. The school’s role is to participate in the mission of the Catholic Church by providing a curriculum, including Catholic religious education and worship, which will help children to grow in their understanding of the Good News and the practice of their faith. The school will help the children develop fully as human beings and prepare them to undertake their responsibilities as Catholics in society. The school requires all parents applying for a place here to understand and respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. This does not affect the rights of parents who are not of the Catholic faith to apply for a place here. Children learn and develop in different ways. Teachers know and understand this and use different teaching styles to plan work at different levels to meet the needs of all pupils in their class. This is called “Quality First Teaching.” All pupils at Sacred Heart RC Primary School receive “Quality First Teaching” from their class teacher. We aim to provide the highest quality learning environment for your child and for them to achieve their full potential. All our classes are supported by teaching assistants and pupils are offered additional support or catch-up programs where needed. Some children also need support at break/lunchtime and we offer a range of pastoral groups to support several children who need different provision at lunchtimes or break times. At Sacred Heart RC Primary School the progress and attainment of all pupils are reviewed on a termly basis by the Senior Leadership Team, of which the School SENCo is a member. These termly pupil progress meetings help identify children who may need additional support to meet identified needs. The progress and attainment of SEND children are reviewed on a half termly basis to ensure provision is matched accurately to need. Parents and Carers would be informed about their child’s general progress and targets through the twice-yearly Parents’ Evenings and the annual school report. Parents and Carers of children with special educational needs/disability (SEND) would be invited into school by their child’s class teacher on a termly basis to review and discuss their child’s IEP (Individual Education Plan). Also, Parents and Carers of children who have a Statement of SEND or a SEND Resource Agreement would be invited into school at least once a year for their child’s annual review meeting. If a child continues to have difficulty after intervention or has a high level of difficulty when they join our school, they may be considered to have special educational needs/disability (SEND) and are placed on the SEND register. This decision is made in partnership with Parents and Carers. Children with SEND have learning difficulties and/or physical disabilities which make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. They will need extra support or different help eg. modified tasks, extra time, or breaks informal assessments. School and other agencies can help most children overcome their difficulties quickly and easily. A few children will need extra help for some or all of their time in school. The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
  13. Sacred Heart Catholic School is a vibrant and dynamic school with high expectations and great ambitions for every one of our pupils. We believe that discipline, structure, and common purpose are solid foundations for success in life and education, and we understand the value of professionalism and innovation in everything we do. We are a Catholic school with very strong moral values and a traditional approach to behavior and discipline our pupils to understand their rights and responsibilities, respect rules and boundaries, and learn to live in honesty and trust. Sacred Heart School consistently achieves outstanding academic results, way above local and national averages in every subject area. For example, in 2014, we became the first state school in Southwark to reach the landmark figure of 90% A*-C including English and Maths. The new measure for Progress 8, a more comprehensive measure of school success, places us firmly as one of the very top-performing schools in the country. Our relatively new Sixth Form has quickly followed suit and we have already sent many students to top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, and many other members of the Russell Group. We fully expect to maintain the same high standards of academic success at A-Level in the coming years that we have reached GCSE. We also have an exceptional record of helping our pupils to achieve more than they think is possible. Sacred Heart has consistently been in the top 2% of the country for adding value to pupils’ education at both Key Stage 3 and 4. As well as outstanding academic outcomes Sacred Heart prides itself on educating the whole child. Academic results will only go so far and we insist on a comprehensive program of moral education, teaching good manners, respect, and a determination to show our pupils that Gospel values are to be lived by, especially when it comes to looking after and caring for those less fortunate. Our Vision: "As a school dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we work to bring one another to an awareness of the fullness and meaning of life, rooted in the love of Jesus". Mission Statement: "Our school strives to be a Catholic community in which Christian principles of care and respect are valued, with emphasis on the development of the individual through academic achievement and personal development". To achieve our vision we will: Recognize and treasure the unique gifts of each pupil and do all that we can to allow these to develop and flourish. Provide the highest possible quality of education where each child is challenged to pursue the highest standards in spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual, and physical development in an environment of academic endeavor and personal discipline. Create a welcoming community of faith that witnesses to the teachings of the gospel and fosters strong bonds of love within the community we serve. Form our pupils in the attitudes of the heart of Jesus expressed in respect, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity. Learning at Sacred Heart is interactive, engaging, and relevant to the real world. Our pupils have a strong grounding in traditional core academic subjects (English, Maths, Science, and RE) from Year 7 onwards, providing a positive platform for achievement in other areas. They learn how to prepare, organize and motivate themselves for work each day, and we support them at every stage of their school career. We want them to be excited by their learning, to recognize its importance, and to be proud of their achievements in every discipline. Sacred Heart has long bathed in the light of outstanding GCSE results and, since the establishment of our Sixth Form, we now have excellent A-Level grades to celebrate too. Our traditional approach and very strong moral values have been carried forward into our Sixth Form as we prepare our young adults for places at the country’s top universities, including offers already in our first few years of operation from Oxford, Cambridge, and many other Russell Group universities. Our curriculum is wide-ranging and proactive, designed to meet the needs of everyone’s abilities, interests, and aspirations for the future. Our pupils learn to think for themselves and we encourage them to become independent learners who ask good questions, think creatively, and solve problems with confidence. By the time our pupils leave school, we want them to be self-disciplined and focused young people who are determined to succeed in whatever career they choose to pursue. Here at Sacred Heart, we believe that learning experiences do not just take place in the classroom, or even in school, but in our local community and further afield too. We appreciate that pupils learn and develop into well-rounded individuals when they are performing on stage or in music concerts, when they are camping in the countryside, or when they are visiting other countries and experiencing other cultures. 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 allows our pupils to reach out and support not only their local community but also the needy elsewhere in the world. 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 behavior, 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 communities and to learn how to lead others with dignity and determination. Sacred Heart Catholic School has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students' high achievement at GCSE. The school qualified for three SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for high attainment the top 10% for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16 and special recognition for their success in enabling students to fulfill their potential.

  15. Create a climate in which Christian values are taught, experienced, lived, and celebrated. They are central to and are shared by the whole school community – the children, staff, family, governors, and parish. Ensure every individual is loved, appreciated, and affirmed. Enable and expect all pupils to achieve their true potential, by providing a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum with equal opportunity to develop their academic, social, creative, and sporting skills. Sacred Heart aims to give every child the firmest possible grounding in the core academic subjects. We aim to develop their wider interests through the great breadth of our curriculum. We aim to ensure that they move on to their chosen secondary schools with the skills, values, and habits that will enable them to thrive there. Above all, we aim to make education fun and to give children confidence. The education we offer boys and girls draws on the very best of both traditional and innovative teaching methods. Children are stretched by an academically demanding and exciting curriculum taught in innovative and creative ways where the focus is on children’s learning. They are given unparalleled access to a whole raft of other activities from art, music, drama, and games to gardening and cooking. The aim of all this is to broaden their horizons and to find something at which they shine. Having found this we celebrate their achievements and successes at every possible opportunity so that children’s enjoyment, self-confidence, and esteem will grow. Sacred Heart is a vibrant caring Catholic community where children both know each other and all of the staff. Assemblies, led by both staff and children, afford the time for us to think about our Christian responsibilities towards others and to celebrate both individual and school achievements. All this is designed to help us nurture and care for our children and for them to grow up to be confident and decent young people, tolerant of one another, and clear about both right and wrong. Life at Sacred Heart is busy and at the end of a full day and week, children return home having had the time of their life. British Values are in line with our Gospel Values! In 2013 the Department for Education said “Keeping our children safe and ensuring schools prepare them for life in modern Britain could not be more important. This change is an important step towards ensuring we have a strong legal basis for intervening in those schools where this is an issue.” “The vast majority of schools already promote British values. This is about making sure we have the tools we need to intervene if children are being let down.” Schools are required to actively promote and not undermine “British Values”. The government has set out its definition of British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. As a Catholic School, we actively promote values, virtues, and ethics that shape our pupils' character and moral perspective, through the teachings of the Church. We are confident that our continued focus on the Gospel Values will give our pupils the necessary awareness of what it means to be a good citizen in Britain today, and embed in them the building blocks of a future successful and productive life. Through our RE, PSHE, and foundation subjects we can make real links between the values of our pupils and the lives of others in their community, country, and the world in general. Through our Creative Curriculum, we teach about democracy, civic responsibility, rules, and laws, the monarchy, equality, values and virtues, environmental awareness, and understanding of other faiths.
  16. Our school is a big family with strong parish and community links. Care and excellent standards of teaching and learning are hallmark statements of our school. At Sacred Heart, we aim to help children develop in their journey of faith in a positive learning environment and we place Jesus, His teachings, and His values at the center of what we do. We also believe that our school will make a valuable contribution to your child’s development. It is a secure and caring environment where children develop their many talents and we fully recognize the importance of educating the ‘whole child. Academic excellence for all children is one of our goals but we also seek to nurture those special gifts which make each child unique. Home, School, and Parish links are also vital. We value the full contribution to school life that parents make and the support offered by our local parish. Together, we ensure that Sacred Heart remains a very special place. E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Sacred Heart. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed by our e-safety policy. e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. Parents must speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online. School Governors play an increasingly significant role in the running of schools. We feel it’s a huge privilege to serve the school, and play our part in ensuring the children at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary receive the education they deserve. School governing bodies are made up of volunteers who are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Individual governors bring a range of experience to the group, drawing on their professional expertise and often their knowledge of the school as parents or as part of the local community. Governors don’t get involved in the everyday operation of the school that is in hands of Mrs. Bramhall and her Senior Leadership Team. Our role is mainly to help shape the strategic direction and priorities of the school, and help drive those priorities forward. Much of the work is done in these committees, and each one will meet once or twice per term. In addition to these meetings, some of us also fulfill statutory roles which oversee different aspects of school life (e.g. Safeguarding, Health and Safety, and Special Educational Needs). The work of the Board of Governors helps ensure that staff can get on with doing what they do best – educating our pupils to a high standard but at the same time creating time, space, and resources for your children to do the more fun things in life. Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School is passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children, and staff at school. Pupil premium funding was introduced in April 2011 to narrow the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The government believes that Pupil Premium is the most effective way of ensuring that funding reached the pupils who need it most. The government has stated that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. We are very proud of the excellent provision for our pupils at Sacred Heart and in particular for those in receipt of the pupil premium grant. All staff is dedicated to ensuring the gap in attainment and achievement closes between those pupils eligible for the pupil premium and all other pupils, and that the school continues to promote a fully inclusive ethos. Outcomes for our pupils remain a priority and work is targeted so that pupils reach their potential. Regular meetings are held with the senior leadership team to assess progress and monitor children's attainment. At Sacred Heart, we always strive to provide quality experiences of prayer and liturgy that support pupils’ spiritual development. These communal acts of prayer and the liturgical celebrations of the Church form part of everyday life in our school. Every child is allowed to pray by giving praise and thanks to God using traditional prayers of the Catholic Church and many other sources of prayer that enable this to take place. We encourage the children to nurture a relationship with God through words, symbols, songs, gestures, and silence. Prayer is such an integral part of school life that it can never be confined to ‘timetabled’ slots but may take place in a variety of contexts other than those specifically structured. Central to our prayer life in Sacred Heart is the weekly Pupil Led Collective Worship. Children prepare reflective sessions themselves and share this with their peers. The Eucharist is the very core, the very essence of our Catholic life, and therefore is celebrated regularly as a whole school and with the extended community. Our school Masses take place on a Thursday morning, with children participating in a variety of ways: praying, reading, and singing. The opportunity to celebrate Mass with our parishioners, in our church, helps to further the children’s understanding of the richness of the Eucharist.
  17. Beechwood Sacred Heart School is set in 23 acres of beautiful parkland in the center of Tunbridge Wells, less than one hour from London. The school is centered on a grand Victorian Mansion built-in 1855 in the style of Osborne House, Queen Victoria's home on the Isle of Wight. Beechwood is a co-educational independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 -18, which comprises a Pre-Prep, Preparatory, and Senior School. It is a thriving, happy, and purposeful place where excellence and a love of learning are nurtured. The children at Beechwood are at the heart of everything that we do. Their enthusiasm and passions are nurtured by a dedicated team of teachers who inspire our students to give their very best both in and outside the classroom, at school and home. Our international day and boarding community for boys and girls aged 3-18 is set in 23 acres of beautiful parkland in the center of Royal Tunbridge Wells. With 23 subjects at A Level including Photography, Art, Textiles, DT, Drama, Music, Psychology and Business Studies as well as the more traditional subjects we allow students at all levels to play to their strengths and study the subjects that excite them.

Creating an educational environment that nurtures creativity encourages flexibility and embraces independence of thought. To equip our pupils with the values, skills, and habits of mind that will help shape their future in a wider world.

All the major feasts in the Christian calendar are marked by sharing in the celebration of Mass in the School’s Chapel, and each Year group has an opportunity to prepare and participate in a Liturgy of its own during each academic year.
  18. At the center of the work we undertake is the belief that each person is unique, created in God’s image, and with a variety of gifts and talents. It is our role as a Catholic educating community to enable each girl to develop those gifts and talents in the education of the whole person. We are building on success in ensuring excellence for all. Our Year 11 students achieve highly which is a testament to the expert teaching and high-quality support that the staff of our school provides and a recognition of the hard work of the girls in their search for excellence. We set the highest standards and expectations for all girls and expect that they will, in turn, do the same. I was pleased to see that in our last OFSTED and Diocesan inspection of our School that the drive and determination of all within our community was recognized. As a result, we have designated a high-performing specialist school and in addition to our work as a language college, we became a Leading Edge specialist school with a particular focus on our work with gifted and talented learners. The Sacred Heart Language College is a Christian community bound together by love and respect for our human dignity. We want to enable everyone in our community to come to a deeper understanding of Christ. We strive for excellence in all that we do. In particular, we seek to provide a high-quality education that will enable all in our community to discover and use the gifts and talents given us by God. Our work is firmly based on the Gospel values of love, respect, justice, equality, and compassion. We firmly believe that these values equip our pupils to be confident and informed members of society and are inherent within British values. The Sacred Heart Language College expects high standards from its pupils. It is a school committed to providing opportunities for success for all pupils whatever their abilities or aptitudes. Every girl is encouraged to attain her ‘personal best’ and the breadth and quality of the curriculum ensures that pupils leave as mature and confident young women, committed young adults who derive their confidence from their achievements. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to benefit from the strength of our community. We are a multi-cultural school and think ourselves fortunate to have such a diversity of talent, culture, and language to enrich our lives. We must protect this richness. Teaching staff and Associate staff all have a crucial role to play in achieving all our aims for our pupils and in ensuring the growth and development of The Sacred Heart Language College as a strong community in each academic year. Our staff is committed to high ideals of professionalism and dedicated service. Unity and consistent practice will underline all our work in The Sacred Heart Language College. View full school

  20. It is important to us that every child develops their Catholic faith and reaches their full potential as they grow to be caring, responsible citizens. At Sacred Heart School ‘Every Heart is Sacred’ and with this in mind, the school community endeavors to reflect the love that Jesus has for us, and treat each other with the respect and kindness that we each deserve. This underpins the children’s development, socially, emotionally, and academically and is evident whenever you meet a child at Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart is an outstanding Catholic primary school where ‘Every Heart is Sacred’. The school offers a distinctively Catholic education based on our faith, our moral values, and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our lives. This ethos drives all that we do, and all who choose to enroll their children at Sacred Heart. At Sacred Heart, it is expected that all members of the school community will reflect the love that Jesus has for us. We aim to ensure that all children achieve the highest possible standards in a creative, happy, and secure environment. We value parents and carers as partners in education and involve them and the wider community in the life of the school. The school will grow and change but we remain true to our vision. The school is strongly supported by the parish community in moral, spiritual, and practical terms. Sacred Heart RC Primary School is a Catholic School in the trusteeship of the Diocese of Salford. It is a voluntary aided school. The Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking all decisions on applications for admissions. The coordination of admissions arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority. For the school’s year commencing September 2018, the Governing Body has determined that the number of children to be admitted to Reception, Year 1,2,3, and 4 will be 45, and Year 5 and 6 will be 30. The school’s role is to participate in the mission of the Catholic Church by providing a curriculum, including Catholic religious education and worship, which will help children to grow in their understanding of the Good News and the practice of their faith. The school will help the children develop fully as human beings and prepare them to undertake their responsibilities as Catholics in society. The school requires all parents applying for a place here to understand and respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. This does not affect the rights of parents who are not of the Catholic faith to apply for a place here. Children learn and develop in different ways. Teachers know and understand this and use different teaching styles to plan work at different levels to meet the needs of all pupils in their class. This is called “Quality First Teaching.” All pupils at Sacred Heart RC Primary School receive “Quality First Teaching” from their class teacher. We aim to provide the highest quality learning environment for your child and for them to achieve their full potential. All our classes are supported by teaching assistants and pupils are offered additional support or catch-up programs where needed. Some children also need support at break/lunchtime and we offer a range of pastoral groups to support several children who need different provision at lunchtimes or break times. At Sacred Heart RC Primary School the progress and attainment of all pupils are reviewed on a termly basis by the Senior Leadership Team, of which the School SENCo is a member. These termly pupil progress meetings help identify children who may need additional support to meet identified needs. The progress and attainment of SEND children are reviewed on a half termly basis to ensure provision is matched accurately to need. Parents and Carers would be informed about their child’s general progress and targets through the twice-yearly Parents’ Evenings and the annual school report. Parents and Carers of children with special educational needs/disability (SEND) would be invited into school by their child’s class teacher on a termly basis to review and discuss their child’s IEP (Individual Education Plan). Also, Parents and Carers of children who have a Statement of SEND or a SEND Resource Agreement would be invited into school at least once a year for their child’s annual review meeting. If a child continues to have difficulty after intervention or has a high level of difficulty when they join our school, they may be considered to have special educational needs/disability (SEND) and are placed on the SEND register. This decision is made in partnership with Parents and Carers. Children with SEND have learning difficulties and/or physical disabilities which make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. They will need extra support or different help eg. modified tasks, extra time, or breaks informal assessments. School and other agencies can help most children overcome their difficulties quickly and easily. A few children will need extra help for some or all of their time in school. The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

  23. Sacred Heart Catholic School is a vibrant and dynamic school with high expectations and great ambitions for every one of our pupils. We believe that discipline, structure, and common purpose are solid foundations for success in life and education, and we understand the value of professionalism and innovation in everything we do. We are a Catholic school with very strong moral values and a traditional approach to behavior and discipline our pupils to understand their rights and responsibilities, respect rules and boundaries, and learn to live in honesty and trust. Sacred Heart School consistently achieves outstanding academic results, way above local and national averages in every subject area. For example, in 2014, we became the first state school in Southwark to reach the landmark figure of 90% A*-C including English and Maths. The new measure for Progress 8, a more comprehensive measure of school success, places us firmly as one of the very top-performing schools in the country. Our relatively new Sixth Form has quickly followed suit and we have already sent many students to top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, and many other members of the Russell Group. We fully expect to maintain the same high standards of academic success at A-Level in the coming years that we have reached GCSE. We also have an exceptional record of helping our pupils to achieve more than they think is possible. Sacred Heart has consistently been in the top 2% of the country for adding value to pupils’ education at both Key Stage 3 and 4. As well as outstanding academic outcomes Sacred Heart prides itself on educating the whole child. Academic results will only go so far and we insist on a comprehensive program of moral education, teaching good manners, respect, and a determination to show our pupils that Gospel values are to be lived by, especially when it comes to looking after and caring for those less fortunate. Our Vision: "As a school dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we work to bring one another to an awareness of the fullness and meaning of life, rooted in the love of Jesus". Mission Statement: "Our school strives to be a Catholic community in which Christian principles of care and respect are valued, with emphasis on the development of the individual through academic achievement and personal development". To achieve our vision we will: Recognize and treasure the unique gifts of each pupil and do all that we can to allow these to develop and flourish. Provide the highest possible quality of education where each child is challenged to pursue the highest standards in spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual, and physical development in an environment of academic endeavor and personal discipline. Create a welcoming community of faith that witnesses to the teachings of the gospel and fosters strong bonds of love within the community we serve. Form our pupils in the attitudes of the heart of Jesus expressed in respect, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity. Learning at Sacred Heart is interactive, engaging, and relevant to the real world. Our pupils have a strong grounding in traditional core academic subjects (English, Maths, Science, and RE) from Year 7 onwards, providing a positive platform for achievement in other areas. They learn how to prepare, organize and motivate themselves for work each day, and we support them at every stage of their school career. We want them to be excited by their learning, to recognize its importance, and to be proud of their achievements in every discipline. Sacred Heart has long bathed in the light of outstanding GCSE results and, since the establishment of our Sixth Form, we now have excellent A-Level grades to celebrate too. Our traditional approach and very strong moral values have been carried forward into our Sixth Form as we prepare our young adults for places at the country’s top universities, including offers already in our first few years of operation from Oxford, Cambridge, and many other Russell Group universities. Our curriculum is wide-ranging and proactive, designed to meet the needs of everyone’s abilities, interests, and aspirations for the future. Our pupils learn to think for themselves and we encourage them to become independent learners who ask good questions, think creatively, and solve problems with confidence. By the time our pupils leave school, we want them to be self-disciplined and focused young people who are determined to succeed in whatever career they choose to pursue. Here at Sacred Heart, we believe that learning experiences do not just take place in the classroom, or even in school, but in our local community and further afield too. We appreciate that pupils learn and develop into well-rounded individuals when they are performing on stage or in music concerts, when they are camping in the countryside, or when they are visiting other countries and experiencing other cultures. 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 allows our pupils to reach out and support not only their local community but also the needy elsewhere in the world. 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 behavior, 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 communities and to learn how to lead others with dignity and determination. Sacred Heart Catholic School has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students' high achievement at GCSE. The school qualified for three SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for high attainment the top 10% for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16 and special recognition for their success in enabling students to fulfill their potential.

  25. Create a climate in which Christian values are taught, experienced, lived, and celebrated. They are central to and are shared by the whole school community – the children, staff, family, governors, and parish. Ensure every individual is loved, appreciated, and affirmed. Enable and expect all pupils to achieve their true potential, by providing a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum with equal opportunity to develop their academic, social, creative, and sporting skills. Sacred Heart aims to give every child the firmest possible grounding in the core academic subjects. We aim to develop their wider interests through the great breadth of our curriculum. We aim to ensure that they move on to their chosen secondary schools with the skills, values, and habits that will enable them to thrive there. Above all, we aim to make education fun and to give children confidence. The education we offer boys and girls draws on the very best of both traditional and innovative teaching methods. Children are stretched by an academically demanding and exciting curriculum taught in innovative and creative ways where the focus is on children’s learning. They are given unparalleled access to a whole raft of other activities from art, music, drama, and games to gardening and cooking. The aim of all this is to broaden their horizons and to find something at which they shine. Having found this we celebrate their achievements and successes at every possible opportunity so that children’s enjoyment, self-confidence, and esteem will grow. Sacred Heart is a vibrant caring Catholic community where children both know each other and all of the staff. Assemblies, led by both staff and children, afford the time for us to think about our Christian responsibilities towards others and to celebrate both individual and school achievements. All this is designed to help us nurture and care for our children and for them to grow up to be confident and decent young people, tolerant of one another, and clear about both right and wrong. Life at Sacred Heart is busy and at the end of a full day and week, children return home having had the time of their life. British Values are in line with our Gospel Values! In 2013 the Department for Education said “Keeping our children safe and ensuring schools prepare them for life in modern Britain could not be more important. This change is an important step towards ensuring we have a strong legal basis for intervening in those schools where this is an issue.” “The vast majority of schools already promote British values. This is about making sure we have the tools we need to intervene if children are being let down.” Schools are required to actively promote and not undermine “British Values”. The government has set out its definition of British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. As a Catholic School, we actively promote values, virtues, and ethics that shape our pupils' character and moral perspective, through the teachings of the Church. We are confident that our continued focus on the Gospel Values will give our pupils the necessary awareness of what it means to be a good citizen in Britain today, and embed in them the building blocks of a future successful and productive life. Through our RE, PSHE, and foundation subjects we can make real links between the values of our pupils and the lives of others in their community, country, and the world in general. Through our Creative Curriculum, we teach about democracy, civic responsibility, rules, and laws, the monarchy, equality, values and virtues, environmental awareness, and understanding of other faiths.
