STAC presents students with the unique opportunity to further their studies in a first-class learning environment; with dedicated teachers in outstanding facilities; focusing on ‘Achieving Excellence with Care’.

The provision offered by the Sacred Heart Sixth Form fosters a love of learning, in Christ and one other, encouraging student to embrace Catholic values through opportunities that will develop a portfolio of experience and skills to support their higher education and career prospects in the future.

Student outcomes are exceptional at both STAC and Sacred Heart; building upon and flourishing the foundations we create at St Matthew Academy. We love to hear our successful alumni come back to us and discuss their sixth form education, and look forward to hearing their career pathways upon leaving the sixth form.
