As one of the original six to achieve National Teaching School designation back in 2010, Sacred Heart Catholic High School is very proud to still be at the cutting edge of exciting developments within teaching. We are also part of the Sacred Heart network of schools, which can be found across the world, they were started in the 1800s with the primary purpose of educating young women.
We work very closely with our strategic partner schools St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School and Excelsior Academy in the secondary sector and Sacred Heart RC Primary, St Cuthbert’s RC Primary Kenton and West Jesmond in the primary sector.

We are proud to be one of only two secondary schools in the north who were successful in securing SSIF funding and are running a KS2-KS4 Maths Project across three local authorities alongside our partner school West Jesmond Primary. We also recently secured funding from the DfE from the Curriculum Fund and have been working with partner primary schools in Geography.
