A warm welcome to the website of Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School.

Christus Exemplum Nostrum

Christ is our example

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. You are my friends if you do what I command you.’

(John 15:12,14)

 My name is Louise Bird and I am privileged to be the Headteacher of the school. Sacred Heart is a small, community school, situated in Hemsworth and we are part of the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust.

Here at Sacred Heart, we believe that through instilling good Christian values, we can help children to respect others and themselves.

Through education, we hope to help our children become self learners, so that they themselves can be interested in and take responsibility for their own learning and education.  All of this will in future years help them to be the absolute best they can be.

Sacred Heart School is an incredible place to belong and we are blessed to have a wonderful team of staff, who are dedicated to providing a high standard of academic and pastoral care to our children.

I hope that you find our website useful and please do not hesitate to contact the school if you would like to discuss anything further, or if you would like to visit our school.
