Welcome

school motto web

Thank you for your interest in Notre Dame High School Sixth Form. We offer you the opportunity to study in a vibrant, friendly and highly successful school with strong Christian values at the heart of everything we do. Notre Dame is a warm and welcoming community with students joining us from around 30 different secondary schools each year. We are an inclusive Sixth Form and welcome students from all faith backgrounds as well as those for whom faith is not a part of their lives.

Our Sixth Form draws on a tradition of excellence in education first established in 1855 by the Sisters of Notre Dame, all the way through to our status in the 21st century as a system leading school designated as a National Teaching School and consistently rated as outstanding. We are proud to blend a deep sense of heritage with cutting edge educational practice and are extremely proud of OFSTED's assessment of our Sixth Form as Outstanding in all areas.

We offer a wide range of subjects for study at AS and A2 taught by well qualified and experienced teachers who are deeply committed to helping you meet the demands of your studies. With an emphasis on supportive pastoral care you will be part of a form group with daily contact from your personal tutor to help ensure you make the best of your time with us.

It's important to us that when you leave our Sixth Form you do so with more than 'just a set of grades'. At Notre Dame there are tremendous opportunities for personal and spiritual development. You are given the chance to take on responsibilities and participate in activities which will develop you personally and allow you to respond to the needs of the wider community. For example, through support work in local primary schools, the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, residential weekends, paired reading schemes and by working with staff to run whole school events such as our Summer Festival, Sports Day and other volunteer lead activities; we hope to offer you a rewarding experience beyond the classroom.

Notre Dame is wonderful place to continue your education beyond year 11, I hope that you take the next step in deciding to become a part of our Sixth Form community, with best wishes for your GCSE exams this year.

Mr M. Birch
Head of Sixth Form
