Tata and his management group in the year 1945. The management acquired the permission and the blessings of the Arch Bishop in Calcutta to establish the Sacred Heart Convent School in Jamshedpur.

The school was opened for the first batch of 70 students, who attended class in the C.N.R. Hall, from the 22nd of January, 1945. The construction of the new building of the school was started under the supervision of Mother Joan and the architectural genius of Mr. Domingo and Mr. Agha. Classes in the new premises started form the year 1951. Presently, the school houses 2300 students and a distinguished faculty.

The objective of the school is to develop the intellectual ability of the students and to imbibe in them the spirit of participation and competition. The school instills in the students the courage to meet the challenges of life with a strong faith in God.
