I am very proud to welcome you to Sacred Heart Catholic School, a Partnership School of the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust.

Sacred Heart has been educating children from its community since 1873. In our school we seek to create an inclusive community where everybody is valued and nurtured. People routinely comment on the friendly atmosphere that exists in the school but they also notice that it has a great sense of purpose.

In September 2015, Ofsted graded our school outstanding in every area and in November 2016 we were awarded National Support School Status. We are  also extremely proud to be commended by Parliament in February 2017 for producing standards in the top 1% of schools in England and Wales.

At Sacred Heart we are committed to the achievement of every single child regardless of his or her ability. I am proud to say that our children not only develop a growth mindset but make exceptional progress from their starting points and achieve outstanding results.

As a school we aim to provide and promote Catholic Education, enabling everyone to reach their full potential in union with God.

“Growing Together, Learning Together, Achieving Together in Christ”

We truly believe that working in partnership with families is everything – when we welcome the child, we welcome the family. We are fortunate that Sacred Heart is set in one of the most beautiful parts of Gateshead which borders County Durham. It is a first class environment with outstanding facilities.

If you are interested in applying for a place at our school, please get in touch.

Mr. S. Woods, Headteacher
