Originally the school educated girls from aged 3 to 18, it had a kindergarten section, a primary school section and a secondary school section. At that time the site covered a stretch of land that spans between Robinson Road and Caine's Road. In 1981 the secondary section of the school moved to Pokfulam but the kindergarten and primary sections of the school remain on the original site on Robinson Road. In 1988 roughly half of the land was sold to developers of high rise residential buildings. The kindergarten and primary sections moved to temporary accommodations until the new buildings on Caine's Road became ready for moving-in in 1992. Since 1981 the secondary school took the name Sacred Heart Canossian College while the kindergarten and primary sections were renamed Sacred Heart Canossian School .
