Staff and pupils at the Sacred Heart school in Wadhurst reflect on another successful year of sport, shows and STEM endeavours
Looking back, we have had an eventful and exciting year at Sacred Heart School. There have been many highlights: our continued excellent academic results; winning a category of the ISA Art competition; the magical production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed by our talented Year 5 and Year 6 children as well as reaching the finals of the in the national ISA football competition, yet again!
We have also had many ‘firsts’ too: the introduction of LAMDA lessons which help inspire pupils to find their voices and to speak with confidence; there was a record number of our pupils to enter to the Tunbridge Wells Arts Festival where our pupils enjoyed fantastic success and where our Junior Choir was awarded a prize in a special category. We have also introduced a new and popular STEM club, allowing the children to develop their Scientific and Mechanical skills. Forest School has been hugely popular: children have dug ponds, toasted marshmallows and built shelters – all whilst embracing the great outdoors. Next year we have a fully-trained member of staff who will lead Forest School and there will be an after-school Forest School club too.
Finally, we now welcome children from their second birthday to our re-branded Nursery which is still very much part of our main school; it will now be known as ‘The Little Hearts’ – small people with Big Hearts!
