Sacred Heart School In 1880 the foundation stone for a new school was laid on a site immediately to the north of the church by Archbishop Vaughan, in front of a crowd of 6,000 people. The new two-storey building was to accommodate two separate schools, with girls taught on the upper level and boys on the lower level. Both sections were run by the Sisters of Charity, who also ran nearby St Vincent’s Hospital.

It closed in 1986.
