About Sacred Heart Catholic School

Sacred Heart Catholic School is a vibrant and dynamic school with high expectations and great ambitions for every one of our pupils. We believe that discipline, structure and common purpose are solid foundations for success in life and education, and we understand the value of professionalism and innovation in everything we do.

We are a Catholic school with very strong moral values and a traditional approach to behaviour and discipline; our pupils understand their rights and responsibilities, respect rules and boundaries and learn to live in honesty and trust.

Sacred Heart School consistently achieves outstanding academic results, way above local and national averages in every subject area. For example, in 2014, we became the first state school in Southwark to reach the landmark figure of 90% A*-C including English and Maths. We also have an exceptional record of helping our pupils to achieve more than they think is possible. Sacred Heart has consistently been in the top 5% of the country for adding value to pupils’ education at both Key Stage 3 and 4. In recent years we have ranked number two in the country out of over 3,000 schools on the Jesson scale, which is based on the progress made by our pupils at GCSE when compared to Key Stage 2 results on entry.

In 2011 we entered an exciting time for the school; our Sixth Form opened and we have already sent many students to top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and many other members of the Russell group. We fully expect to maintain the same high standards of academic success at A Level in the coming years that we have reached at GCSE.

As of September 2014, we have also gained new school facilities fit for 21st Century teaching and learning with the completion of our rebuilt school on Camberwell New Road. At last, we are now able to match our excellent results with a state-of-the-art building.

I am immensely proud of this school – of our wonderful pupils, parents and staff, working and living together as a united community under God. We are providing all-round education that inspires, challenges and motivates our pupils to aim high, to work hard and to fulfill their potential. Our excellent record of achievement is a testament to the strength, determination and sheer hard work of my staff.
