Sacred Heart Teaching School Alliance is an all-girl 11-18 Catholic Academy situated in Newcastle upon Tyne and was one of the first six teaching schools in the North East designated back in 2010. We work very closely with our strategic partner schools St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School for Boys and Excelsior Academy in the secondary sector and Sacred Heart RC Primary and St Cuthbert’s RC Primary Kenton in the primary sector.
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.
Over the past year, we have developed expertise in training new teachers through our own SCITT after building on our success as a lead school for School Direct.
