Lancashire Sport School of the Year

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

I am writing to share some fantastic news!

Following our success at being chosen by Wyre Borough Council to be Wyre Sports School of the Year, we were invited to the Lancashire Sports Awards.

At the Awards, we were in the School of the Year category, alongside the other seven regional winners within Lancashire, out of the 541 schools in Lancashire. We came third last year, but this year… we won!!

It is an amazing achievement by our school to be given the honour of Lancashire Sport School of the Year, and it recognises the dedication, commitment and enthusiasm of all of our children, staff, parents and governors to sport and promoting physical activity.

We will continue to give as many physical activity and sporting opportunities throughout the school year, and try different sports too, especially as we build towards major events such as the World Athletics Championships and the Olympics in Rio next year.

It is incredible how children grow in confidence through achievement in sport, in making personal bests, being part of a team, or simply enjoying physical activity. We want children to enjoy sport, and keep being active in high school and beyond!

Yours sincerely

Mr P. Eaton

New School Year Letter

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Dear Parents and Guardians

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you, and your child back to Sacred Heart for another school year. For those who are new to our school community I would like to extend a special welcome. I hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.


We are at a fairly advanced stage with the installation of the sports court, with the tarmac nearly completed, and the fencing should be erected in the next week or so.  The court will make a huge difference to break and lunch times, and allowing our sport to continue when the field is too wet to use.  The court will allow the children to develop their skills in tennis, hockey, cricket, netball, basketball and many other sports.

The bicycle storage will be restored to a different location when the work is complete, but please use the fence by the double gates at the end of the pedestrian path by the car park.


On our return to school, we have received notification that we have become the Wyre Sports School of the Year 2014, winning the award for the second successive year, from a choice of 71 schools.  We are absolutely delighted to have been given this honour, and we now attend the Lancashire sports awards to see if we can get Lancashire sports school of the year (third last year)!

Yours sincerely

Mr P. Eaton
