Welcome to the new website for Sacred Heart Catholic Voluntary Academy.
Sacred Heart is a Catholic Academy within the Diocese of Nottingham and the City of Leicester and is part of the Corpus Christi Multi Academy Trust (along with St. Thomas More, St. John Fisher, St. Joseph’s, Leicester and St. Joseph’s, Market Harborough).
The school was formed to educate the catholic children living in the Parish of Sacred Heart in Leicester. The date 1884 is engraved on one of the original buildings of the school. We still have very strong links with the Church, our Parish Priest, Fr. John Lally and the Parish.
Our school mission statement was originally written by staff, Governors and the Parish and was recently revised by the Chaplain, Chaplaincy group and RE team. It is, as follows:
“We believe that God’s spirit is at work in everyone in our community. We will provide an environment of hope, joy and fulfilment in which the skills to fulfil God’s desires for us, as unique individuals, are cultivated.”
I hope that you find everything you are looking for on the site, but if not, please contact us.

Our Lentern chosen charity
This year, the Chaplaincy group have chosen to raise money throughout Lent, for Wateraid.
We have a small raffle and jam jars for pennies in each classroom. Please ask your child about the beautiful Liturgy today (March 22nd). There were film clips, photos and stories about how important it is to help others across the World to have the same clean water as we take for granted.
