About Our School

Sacred Heart is a high achieving, aspirational, innovative and creative place for children to learn. This is because of our highly dedicated team who work in partnership with our families to ensure an up to date curriculum is offered, enhanced by our unique attributes –

Our Alliance

Since September 2014, Sacred Heart has been working in partnership with the University of Cumbria and local schools to create a pathway into teaching through the School Direct Programme, leading to the award of PGCE with Qualified Teacher Status. 

This alliance promotes innovation and creativity, aiming for excellence in all we do. Our intention is to train, coach and mentor to the highest of standards which reflect the high-quality provision in our schools.

Our schools are experienced in Initial Teacher Training through strong and established links with local universities. We are looking to recruit outstanding trainees committed to our shared ethos of innovation and challenge.

Sacred Heart RC Primary School & Heart TSA is the lead school for School Direct places. Whilst applications will be made via naming the lead school, the School Direct places are at a number of different schools within the Alliance.

In addition to home school placements, you will have three main placements during the course of the year in varied and inspiring schools, providing experience in different environments and thereby allowing you to make an informed decision when applying for posts. The Alliance, whilst not offering or guaranteeing employment for any graduate, has agreed to look first at our own talented pool if a vacancy arises.
