Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form’s website

At Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College we are extremely proud of all our students’ achievements, especially the individual progression that they each make in their time with us.

This website will give you a flavour of life at Notre Dame, the extensive range of subjects on offer, the variety of enrichment activities and the numerous opportunities to engage with volunteering and charity work. We are committed to developing the ‘whole person’ and the ‘good character’ of each student through access to experiences that enable them to both progress and succeed and ultimately to be the ‘best they can be’.

We are pleased to be rated as an ‘Outstanding’ College by Ofsted but more importantly we are proud of the outstanding progress each of our students make. We use a national value added measure, ALPs, which is recognised by Ofsted. This measures the progress each student makes at College in relation from their GCSE results to their results at A-level or Level 3 T Level, BTEC or CTEC. On this basis, Notre Dame’s value added scores put us as one of the top Sixth Form Colleges.

We believe that each student is an individual, exceptional and needs to be valued. High quality teaching and learning, coupled with exceptional pastoral support provides the inspiration and motivation to realise every young person’s aspiration. Our students really fulfil their potential with us progressing onto prestigious universities and rewarding careers. Our aim is to provide students with the very best possible education, to help them develop new interests and to use whatever talents they have in the service of the College and the wider community. Our success is built upon teamwork between staff and students. Our staff are passionate about working with young people and always go the extra mile to provide guidance and support to help them succeed.

We are a Catholic College for the community and we provide students with numerous opportunities to be involved with campaigning and charitable work as well as considering their own spiritual journey. I firmly believe that whatever your faith or beliefs there is something very special here for every student. I encourage you to see Notre Dame for yourself by coming along to our open days or attending one of our virtual events – I look forward to meeting you then.
