Notre Dame Sixth Form College
Notre Dame is an extremely popular and over-subscribed state college situated in the city of Leeds. The College is home to over 1,600 local UK students and with an excellent reputation, it offers a supportive and exciting atmosphere for study.
Fee paying International Students make up less than 3% of the college population and are fully integrated into our college community.
Notre Dame was established in 1898 and has grown over the years from a small chapel with just a few teaching rooms, to a much larger college where traditional buildings sit happily alongside the new to create the campus style site that we see today.
Notre Dame Campus is situated in the academic heart of the city. Directly opposite the University of Leeds and adjacent to the city centre, it is well serviced by public transport, shops and accommodation and enjoys a vibrant student environment.
Our classrooms, technology workshop and laboratories are purpose built and well-equipped and our other facilities include a sports hall, a drop-in IT centre and a large library suite.
