Learning and teaching strategies catering for learner diversity encourage students to develop their generic skills, self-motivation, creativity and to strive for intellectual growth. Formation of the heart, cultivation of diverse interests and a balanced personal development are given equal emphasis as academic excellence. We offer different subject combinations to accommodate the interest of students and a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as overseas cultural study tours and service programmes to widen the exposure of students. To meet the needs of the fast-developing world, much e-learning elements have been included in the daily learning and assessment of students.

Students are encouraged to think on their feet and explore language in an interactive and relaxed fashion. We also value the importance of experiential learning with related activities such as S.5 Extended Learning Week, S.4 Service Day and S.3 Sacred Heart Enterprise Challenge.

Reading - Our school aims at fostering a positive attitude towards reading, cultivating students' character and widening their exposure through sustained exposure to a language-rich environment on campus. The reading scheme and the newly set up eLibrary aims to form the reading habit of the students.
2. I.T. – Our school encourages teachers to use innovative e-learning strategies to enhance the learning effectiveness and creativity. Through providing a technology-rich environment, students’ self-directed learning, problem-solving, collaboration and computational thinking competency are strengthened. A variety of learning software and online exercises are available in the Self-access Learning Centre and on the school intranet for students to make full use of their learning opportunities outside the classroom.
3. PBL - Project-based learning in junior levels aims to develop students’ generic skills by engaging them in interesting projects. Humanities and STEM projects are offered to S2 students. Students working on the projects can acquire project skills, application and integration skills and problem-solving skills as they exercise their creativity. After searching and reading articles, students are required to showcase their research outcomes via competition and setting up educational and entertaining game booths. S3 students are involved in the “Sacred Heart Enterprise (SHE) Challenge” which provides our S3 students with an authentic business experience through the start-up, operation and liquidation of their class-based social enterprise. This project gives students an opportunity to unleash their non-academic potential and acquire entrepreneurial skills. Their confidence, awareness of business ethics and social responsibility are strengthened.
4. Life Education - The school provides all-round education for students in helping them to recognise true moral values, the sense of self-worth and dignity, as well as preparing them for their work and life. It aims at fostering students' whole person development so that they learn to accept themselves, cultivate a sense of responsibility, show willingness to serve others and appreciate life.
