Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School
Old London Road, TN35 5NA, UK Hastings
+44 (0)1424 429494


Sacred Heart School is situated in its own extensive grounds off Old London Road, just above the picturesque
Old Town of Hastings, and is the official primary school for the Parish of
St, Mary Star-of-the-Sea, Hastings.

Formerly a private school for Secondary girls, the school changed in 1964 to a Voluntary Aided Primary School to
provide primary places for the Catholic families of the parish.

The building suffered problems in the late ‘80s when the hall subsided. This was replaced by a new wing comprising hall,
 library and kitchen. The building has continued to be developed – the most recent improvement being the enlargement of the
staffroom and construction of a porch over the main entrance. The grounds are also being constantly improved.

The building adjoining the school was formerly a convent, but following the departure of the Sisters in early ‘80s, it fell
 into disuse during the ‘90s but has now undergone a major refurbishment as private accommodation.

Many former teachers and pupils now have their own children and grandchildren attending the school and strong links
continue to be fostered within the Parish and local community.

The school has a single form entry (30 maximum) at age 4.  During the last year we have received an Outstanding


At Sacred Heart School we provide an excellent education for all which encompasses spiritual, intellectual, moral and social growth within a friendly, secure and stimulating environment; where everyone is valued and encouraged to develop fully;
where we are committed to raising standards and achievement throughout the school community in an orderly and industrious atmosphere; where Gospel values are at the heart of the school and are shared with the wider community around us

Our overall aim is to provide a school where everyone feels happy and secure and are encouraged to develop their full potential, physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, creatively and spiritually. Within our Catholic community of Sacred Heart School we aim to encourage everyone to:
  • live by the Gospel values,
  • respond to a broad, balanced curriculum that is relevant to the children’s age, ability, experience, and differentiated to meet their needs in line with statutory requirements,
  • work towards and maintain the highest standards,
  • celebrate success and achievement,
  • develop a positive image of themselves with a sense of self discipline and a respect for others,
  • inspire and awaken a sense of awe, wonder and curiosity,
  • be responsible members of the wider community.
