About our school

The transformation of heads, hearts and hands lies at the heart of a Sacré Coeur education. Our holistic approach to educating young women unites academic endeavour with deep care for each child. Laughter, inclusivity, friendship and diversity of opportunity are evidenced in the girls’ education. Students at Sacré Coeur feel a palpable sense of belonging and connection to their lived experience and benefit from of a rich diversity of faiths within our community. Our students learn from highly qualified and passionate teachers, many of whom are curriculum experts and VCE assessors. Our teachers embrace each child as an individual, meeting their learning and wellbeing needs; as a result, our young women flourish and achieve exceptional results. Creative thinking is a cornerstone of a Sacré Coeur education, and we nurture this within each student, ensuring that they can see and solve the challenges of today and the future. We encourage students to gain a multidimensional view of the world through cross curriculum and cross year level learning. Our new St Madeleine Sophie Barat Centre, opened in late 2021, further inspires our future thinkers, creators and problem solvers bringing together science, technology and creative arts, as well as a three level resource centre under one roof. We are privileged to belong to an international Sacred Heart family of over 150 schools across 41 countries. Our international family helps to grow our sense of community as we learn together through exchanges, and engage in programs that support social justice initiatives locally and globally.
