A warm welcome to the website of Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School.

Sacred Heart is a small school situated just off the main street in the former mining town of Hemsworth. Built in the late 19th century, Sacred Heart School still retains many of its original architectural features and there is still evidence from when it was used as a place of worship.

We are very proud of the school's traditions and many of our children are following in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents.

At Sacred Heart we encourage our children to value and respect every person as an individual who is made in the image of God. As a Christian community in the Catholic tradition we strive to nurture and care for everyone associated with our school in the spirit of Gospel values.

As a school we work in partnership with our parents so that our children have high expectations and together we expect high standards in education, behaviour and presentation.

If you would like to know more about our school, please feel free to contact the school office and speak to the Admin Officer: Mrs Norcup by telephone 01977 625354 or by e-mail at admin@sacredheart.bkcat.co.uk.

Thank you to the parishioners of Sacred Heart and St Joseph’s, Moorthorpe who donated over 80 pairs of rosary beads to our school. We have used them to pray the rosary at lunchtimes during October, the month of the Holy Rosary.
