Welcome to the website of

Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Atherton



Mr I McDermott


By living out our Catholic faith




"I have called you by name"


Sacred Heart is a Voluntary Aided Primary school within the Archdiocese of Liverpool serving the Parish of St Margaret Clitherow.  A majority of pupils live in the Atherton and Tyldesley area, within the Borough of Wigan. 

As a smaller than average Primary school, Sacred Heart is like 'a family'.  Our pupils are happy, resilient, enthusiastic, caring, responsible, well behaved and creative, to name but a few qualities!  We hope that you will take time to find out more about us on our website and social media pages.

"Pupils' engagement in and enjoyment of their learning is good as shown by their interest, positive attitudes and exemplary behaviour. This is a real strength of the school" - Archdiocese of Liverpool 2017
