Welcome to Sacred Heart Secondary

I offer you a warm welcome to Sacred Heart Secondary Catholic Voluntary Academy’s website. I hope you find the information you are looking for; you may even be tempted to make an appointment to come and visit us.

Sacred Heart is a thriving, well established and successful 11 – 16 mixed Academy, serving the Catholic communities of Redcar and East Cleveland, close to the town of Middlesbrough on the north east coast.

Judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2011 and the Diocese of Middlesbrough in 2011 and 2017, the success of the Academy is down to the commitment of staff, students and governors, striving together for excellence. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum within an environment of high expectations and strong pastoral support. In recent years we have particularly developed support around mental health and wellbeing; I like to think we are now a centre of good practice in this field.

Gospel values and the teachings of the Catholic Church underpin all that we do, in the firm belief that every person is made in the image and likeness of God. This leads to the recognition that each individual has something unique that only they can contribute to the growth and development of the Academy community. Click here for our Mission statement.

We welcome applicants from people of all faiths and none who wish to benefit from, and are able to support, our Catholic ethos.
