Welcome to Sacred Heart School

It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of Sacred Heart School and I am proud to share with you the wonderful work that takes place at our school. I believe that our school is truly a special place, where all children are loved, cherished and nurtured. It is a vibrant school where children are happy, confident and enthusiastic in their learning.

We are a small, community school, situated in Hemsworth and we are part of the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust. We belong to the Catholic community of Sacred Heart Hemsworth & St Joseph’s Moorthorpe, where we have built strong relationships with our Parish Priest, Father Anthony.

I am truly blessed to work alongside a team of fantastic teachers who work hard to ensure the curriculum offer at Sacred Heart is not only engaging and exciting, but meets the needs of all pupils, allowing them to become model citizens in Modern Britain. We ensure that children foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. Individual talents are spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential. There is a strong emphasis on the Catholic faith at Sacred Heart and our children are taught to live by the virtues so their ‘character’ can flourish as a whole person.

“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)

We know that all individuals are unique, made in the image of God and that Jesus is the model teacher. This curriculum is underpinned by regular opportunities for high quality personal and spiritual development in which pupils will grow in faith and come to know and live out the Christian Virtues.

The school has a dedicated team of staff and governors that work hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child’s education and value your interest and support.
