Welcome to Sacred Heart Primary School Teddington

Sacred Heart School

Sacred Heart School is a single form entry, voluntary aided Catholic Primary school. It has 30 places in Reception, 26 in Nursery and is situated in the heart of Teddington. Catholic spirituality is central to every aspect of school life and our pupils grow and develop in God's love. 


Sacred Heart school warmly welcome families of other faiths and none - our expectation is that these applicants are comfortable with supporting for the Catholic character and ethos of the school. We want everyone to feel welcome at our school and all our families say we wholeheartedly do this as do Ofsted.


Sacred Heart School serves all the Catholic parishes in the area. These include Sacred Heart (Teddington), St Francis de Sales (Hampton Hill), St Theodore's (Hampton) and St Margaret's (East Twickenham). Applications are  warmly invited from Catholic families in all these parishes. 


In recent years the school has been able to offer places to all applicants from all local parishes and local families.


Visits to the School are welcome and a tour can be arranged by contacting the school office on 020 8977 6591. 

A small school has many benefits for its pupils including:

  • A warm and caring environment with excellent teaching staff ensures that the children's transition into life at Sacred Heart is exceptionally smooth and quick
  • A teaching staff with a wealth of experience who put the pupils at the heart of all they do

  • Every child is visible with their varying needs met - socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually

  • KS1 and KS2 SATs results that are consistently well above National

  • Thriving on-site breakfast and after-school provisions
  • Dedicated, specialist staff ( Music, sport, learning support)

  • Extensive outside space

  • An active and cohesive parent teacher body, which raises significant funds for our children, as well as many social events

We look forward to welcoming your child to Sacred Heart School and helping them realise their full potential.
