Our values are based on the Gospels of Jesus Christ and the teachings and aims of the Catholic Church. The Parish Priest of Sacred Heart Church is Father Fitz, he has a close relationship with our school and often takes the time to pay us a visit.

Standing proudly on the corner of Hall Lane and Prescot Street in Kensington, the sandstone church is a Grade II listed building. It has played an important part in the community ever since it was opened in 1886 due to the expanding Catholic population in Liverpool. The core elements of the church, such as the nave and exterior, were designed by renowned ecclesiastical architect George Goldie.

As well as our frequent trips to Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, we often visit the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral too. Officially known as the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, it is one of two cathedrals in the city, the largest Catholic cathedral in England and the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Liverpool. The Grade II listed Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Liverpool.

The Archbishop of Liverpool is the ordinary of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Liverpool and metropolitan of the Province of Liverpool. The archdiocese covers a 450 square mile area, encompassing the bulk of Lancashire, parts of Merseyside, Halton, Warrington, Cheshire, the Isle of Man and Greater Manchester.
