Welcome to Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School


It is with great pleasure that I introduce our school to you. The Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School is a warm and caring learning community with a strong family ethos and a distinctive Catholic identity.

Our pupils spend a significant proportion of their lives here. It is a time in which they are gaining the knowledge and developing the skills that will equip them for adult life and enable them to make a positive contribution to society.

These years should be spent in a challenging but supportive and well-ordered environment, and we do our best to ensure that our girls are happy and fulfilled throughout their time with us.

About us

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join our 6th Form in September.
 
At Sacred Heart of Mary you will have the opportunity to study in a warm and caring learning community with a strong family ethos and a distinctive Catholic identity. We are justifiably proud of our excellent reputation and OFSTED (the Office for Standards in Education) have, three times, judged us to be an ‘Outstanding’ school. The last inspections of the school were carried out by Ofsted in November 2013 and by Section 48 Inspectors in March 2014. The school was rated on both occasions as ‘Outstanding’ with inspectors noting that we are a school with a “profound sense of being a warm and welcoming family”.
 
As the most senior pupils in the school, we will expect you to make significant contributions to the distinctive character of the school as prefects, mentors and school officials.
 
You will spend a significant proportion of your lives here at school in Years 12 & 13, and so it is important that your time with us should be in a challenging, but supportive and well-ordered environment. We will ensure that you have opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip you to make a positive contribution to society as a responsible adult.
 
High standards and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of school life are priorities at Sacred Heart of Mary and we will be relying on you to support staff in promoting spiritual and moral values, to be role models of courtesy and consideration for others, and to motivate and inspire younger pupils to be just like you.
 
All we ask of you is that you work hard and make the most of every opportunity offered to you, and in return, you will be supported by a talented and dedicated staff who will work hard to ensure that you are happy and fulfilled throughout your time with us.
