We are pleased to announce following an evaluative assessment of Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College's character education provision, we have been awarded the "School of Character Quality Mark Award". Congratulations to our colleagues who have all contributed enormously to this outstanding achievement, which recognises our high quality teaching, mutually respectful relationships, and value-driven personal development programme.
"The atmosphere around the college is calm with students conducting themselves in a considered and respectful manner. This is reflective of the values-driven culture which has been intentionally cultivated by the college’s leadership."
"Staff are encouraged to not only be effective teachers of their subject but role models who ‘live’ the Stella Maris virtues. This is facilitated through staff Stella Maris commendations, recruitment processes and appraisals."
"The language of character and virtues is present around the college. This provides students, visitors and staff with the message that character development is a core part of the purpose of education at the college."
