Lower School


Welcome To Sacred Heart Lower School

The Lower School includes Little Pedlars to Year 6. We believe that our school is a very special place where a broad curriculum and range of extra- curricular activities is offered in a friendly, caring and inclusive environment.

We are proud of our family atmosphere and strive to provide not only the highest quality education but also help our pupils to become happy, successful and fulfilled individuals. We want them to feel confident, secure and challenged; to develop individual gifts and talents and feel valued.

Years 1 and 2 are mainly form based but Years 3 to 6 run with the senior system of subject teachers. Full advantage is taken of senior school facilities. They also join the House system which forges links with the Senior School pupils. Through our Lower School Council all pupils have the opportunity to have their say and this does result in changes.

Success is celebrated in the knowledge that this will encourage greater achievement in the future and this is particularly evident in our class assemblies, to which parents are invited, and to our music and drama productions which take place throughout the year.

Responsibility is given to our Year 6 pupils as they take on the role of leaders to the younger pupils. This helps to prepare them for their full integration into the Senior School.

We are pleased to welcome visitors to our school and offer “taster days” for those who are considering joining us. We are renowned in the community for courteous, polite and friendly pupils and I am sure that this will be evident as you walk through our school.
