Why Choose Notre Dame?

Missing Attachment

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.

Our aim is to offer a ‘World Class Catholic Education’ by providing the best care, support and outcome for each individual student.  As a Catholic College we make Christ known to all members of our extended community through the way we work and the way we act. The virtues of faith, hope and love are at the centre of our teaching, support and guidance. In the words of St Paul we promote ‘be ambitious for the higher gifts….there are three things that last: faith, hope and love; and the greatest of these is love.’

The College success is built upon teamwork between staff and students. Our staff are dedicated to helping each student succeed and to achieve the best that they can. Their passion, inspiration and determination; underpinned by skill, knowledge and empathy nurtures each student as an individual, as exceptional and who needs to be valued.
