Our Campus

Students at Sacred Heart College enjoy one of the best educational sites in the country. Located in Auckland’s peaceful Eastern suburbs, our campus is set in 22 hectares of rolling grounds. Classrooms and specialist rooms sit along the ridge of this tranquil space, taking full advantage of the sea view.

Our curriculum encourages learning in all fields in the classroom and out, which is reflected in the wide range of facilities across our campus. Our grounds comprise a 1500-seat auditorium, Performing Arts Centre, Chapel, gymnasium, Aquatic Centre, outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and multiple fields for sports and recreation.

Up to 170 students from Year 9 to 13 reside in our on-site Boarding Hostel. Please visit our Boarding page for more information on Boarding facilities.

The Chapel

Our religious values are at the core of everything we do at Sacred Heart. Our Chapel is the centre of prayer and liturgies within the College and offers students, staff, Brothers and visitors a quiet space to carry out these rituals. The space has been beautifully redesigned in recent years and is decorated with the Chapel’s original organ and a baby grand piano – a gift from the Friends of Sacred Heart.

Auditorium and Br Sean Hanaray Foyer

With a state-of-the-art multimedia system and capacity to seat 1500 people, our auditorium hosts all school assemblies, prize-giving’s and banquet functions. The Br Sean Hanaray Foyer is a bright and expansive space used for class displays, exhibitions and social gatherings.

Theatre

With a flat, floor-level stage and tiered seating for up to 240 people, our fully functioning on-site theatre gives students the opportunity to perform. The space has a large proscenium arch, which can be accessed from a side wing and loading dock, or through a small wing and an internal door. The theatre also has a white cyclorama, black tabs upstage, black centre tabs and a small apron in front of the curtain for presentations.

Students at Sacred Heart are encouraged to participate in a variety of swimming and aquatic-based programmes. Our Aquatic Centre is on-site and comprises three pools:

  • Main pool – 2m deep x 25m x 8 lanes
