Sacred Heart College Middle School is a school for boys from Years 6 to 9. Situated in Mitchell Park, Sacred Heart Middle has provided quality boys education to both local and boarding students for nearly 50 years. The school has a close relationship with Sacred Heart College Senior, a co-educational Years 10 to 12, day and boarding school in Somerton Park. The boys are joined in Year 10 by the girls from Marymount College, a girls middle school from Years 6 to 9 located in Hove.
The Marist Brothers were founded in France by Saint Marcellin Champagnat in the early years of the nineteenth century and they were subsequently invited to establish schools in Australia, arriving in 1872. Sacred Heart was founded in 1897 and is now governed by Marist Schools Australia, along with fifty one other schools across Australia.
Contemporary Marist educators share and continue Marcellin's dream of transforming the lives of young people, particularly the least favoured, through offering them an holistic education, aimed to develop "good citizens and good Christians." This is evidenced in the curriculum, extension activities and the religious experiences designed to be relevant and contemporary learning opportunities for middle school boys.
For 2014, Sacred Heart College will have the same Principal for each of the schools - the Middle and Senior Schools. During the year consultation in regard to the future structure of 'Sacred Heart' will occur.
