Is this supposed to be a question, a tutorial, ... ?
Can you be more specific?

EDIT: My suggested solution doesn't work. The above still applies though imho.

If you want the height of an sf::Text Object simply call sf::Text::getLocalBounds().height.

No. It will be up to the base line.

If you want the maximum height independent of the actual text string it should be same as getCharacterSize/setCharacterSize.

You could use getGlobalBounds().height.

getLocalBounds can be different depending on the text string. If you actually had a "p" in the string it should reach further down to include the bar-part reaching below the o-part. getGlobalBounds is the same, just transformed into a global coordinate system.
getCharactersize should be the maximum allowed height that cant be drawn outside of when using any character, including "ÂÖgq|".
