The school community is immensely proud of Stuartholme’s many achievements over the years. Our students have excelled academically, in the arts, and in sport. Many have represented their state and country, or gone on to forge impressive careers. Others have made their way quietly in the world, no less exceptional, always true to themselves thanks largely to a life-forming, holistic education.
The qualities that we instil in our students reflect the founding principles of the Society of the Sacred Heart. While these principles are over 200 years old, they remain as relevant today as they were when Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat founded the Society in postrevolutionary France. Our international school ‘family’ recognises the importance of educated women and their positive influence on society. Our goals foster the personal development and social awareness of each of our students; respect for intellectual and community building values; and education of young women to a faith that is meaningful in today’s modern world.
At Stuartholme, we provide a caring, open-hearted school environment in which every girl is allowed to shine and grow as an individual. The calibre of our graduates clearly demonstrates the school’s high standards and its success in building women of character and self-discipline. Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat once said: “For the sake of a single child I would have founded the Society of the Sacred Heart.” .
Fortunately, many thousands of girls from across the world have benefited over the years from her extraordinary educational vision. Since the doors of this school opened in 1920, Stuartholme has gone from strength to strength. Our ongoing commitment to modern education in the Sacred Heart tradition will ensure that our school continues to enrich the lives of all our students, today and well into the future.
"For the sake of a single child I would have founded the Society of the Sacred Heart."
