About

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.
We are justifiably very proud of our wonderful school. We enjoy an enviable reputation and we have been rated on 3 occasions as ‘Outstanding’ by both Ofsted and the Diocese with inspectors noting that we are a school with a “profound sense of being a warm and welcoming family”.
We believe in high standards and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of school life and high value is placed on spiritual and moral values as well as on courtesy and consideration for others. At our school, girls develop self-discipline, a sense of self-worth, independence of thought, and confidence in expressing themselves. We expect all members of our school community to show respect for others and an understanding and appreciation for difference in race, religion and culture.
Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School encourages girls to live ‘Life to the Full’ and to bring life to the full to others in a challenging, but supportive and well-ordered environment
Our school is blessed with a talented and dedicated staff who work hard for the benefit of the girls and this has resulted in the school earning a reputation as a well-disciplined, caring but moreover, a happy community where pupils achieve well and develop into young women who are balanced, confident and ambitious to succeed.
