At Sacred Heart we offer a broad and balanced curriculum and as a Performing Arts specialist school we are especially committed to teaching and learning in Drama, Dance and Music.  We nurture our students and encourage them to study these subjects at GCSE, A Level and beyond.

Category 6 of the admissions policy states that, “Up to 10% of the annual intake of children who demonstrate an aptitude for Performing Arts. An objective method of determining aptitude and not of general ability will be used. Read Note 8.”

Note 8 states:


As a Specialist School we are allowed by law to select up to 10% of the intake based on our specialism. Judgement on aptitude will be made from independent evidence provided by the parents. If the number of applicants exceeds 10% students will take part in workshops in Performing Arts set by the school, designed to establish aptitude. This will lead to the creation of a rank order. There will be a maximum of 22 places available under this criterion depending on how many places are available after the other criteria 1 - 5 have been applied. The assessor will have skills in the Performing Arts, be independent of the school, and will have no family connection with any applicant. The assessor’s judgment on aptitude on the day is final. Any independent evidence that the parents wish to submit must be sent to the school.


Any evidence that the parents wish to submit must be sent to the school.
