At Sacred Heart we value pupil voice and we want to involve our pupils with school and community life. We have various councils who have distinct and different roles. Our house councils educate our pupils about social need in our society and work to raise money for their five chosen charities. Our houses are named after positive social educators and were chosen to reflect our core values: Mother Teresa for compassion, Helen Keller for achievement, Oscar Romero for faith, Mahatma Ghandi for responsibility and Martin Luther King for respect.


Our School Council is a platform for pupils to discuss their teaching and learning and any other school matters. There are regular class councils that feed into meetings with the school leadership.

Our School Ambassadors represent our community wherever possible at events in school or outside, where they promote our mission statement and work to ensure we love one another. They are responsible for our love one another month promoting pupils to treat each other well at all times.

Our Eco-Council work to promote a sustainable way of life by looking after our school environment and promoting walking or cycling to school.

Our House Council helps support a different charity throughout the year. Blessed Mother Teresa is supporting Cancer Research UK, Mahatma Ghandi is supporting CAFOD, Martin Luther King is supporting Dementia UK, Oscar Romero is supporting Guide Dogs for the Blind and Helen Keller is supporting Brentwood Catholic Children's Society.
