WELCOME TO SACRED HEART OF MARY GIRLS’ SCHOOL

students

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.

The Apostleship of the Sea

The Apostleship of the Sea

Roland Hayes from the  visited the school today to share the work of the AotS including their contribution to the Corporal Works for Pope Francis’ Year of Mercy. 7L then had the opportunity to ask Roland questions in their RE lesson and they discussed in depth how AotS support seafarers in at the nearby Tilbury and London Gateway docks. It was also a physics lesson (how do the container ships even float?) and a geography lesson (where does our food and goods come from and why?).
