About Save Sacred Heart School, Swaffham from TV's 'Bad Habits, Holy Orders'
Sacred Heart is a wonderfully nurturing environment for a diverse community of children. It is an environment like no other due in part to the school motto 'Service Before Self' being truly alive in every child from 3 through 16. It has a unique approach thanks to the Sisters and staff members working together to foster a safe space for all learners and all abilities.
Over the years the school has moved from being a predominantly fee-paying school to one where many families and students would have been unable to benefit from our wonderful school and facilities without the aid of bursaries.
The Sisters who help run the school (many of whom featured in Bad Habits, Holy Orders first broadcast on Channel 5 in 2017) have subsidised the school over the past few years as the social and economic landscape around us has changed, by selling off assets such as properties in order for the school to continue.
Sacred Heart School believed the way forwards was to convert to a Free School under professional advise, and put great energies and time in to doing so. Sadly however, this was not possible as the Free School criteria was changed after the snap election in summer 2017 and Sacred Heart no longer met the requirements.
Sacred Heart is now in the position where if nothing else changes the entire school will close it's doors in July 2019.
We desperately wish to continue this offering, and greatly appreciate all donations made to help save our school.
