Extra Curricular Enrichment
Committed to its duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential.
Key staff with responsibility
for Enrichment: Miss H McCullen.
At Notre Dame we have an excellent timetable of extra curricular activities to offer our students. This enriches the students experience at school and allows them to try new things, expand their knowledge and skills and share in new experiences with other students.
Groups and activities include Sports such as Football and Handball, Diversity Group, Eco Club, Ideas Club, Dungeons and Dragons, Games Club and many more!
Students can also participate in community and charity work through our Faith in Action Group with our College Chaplain, Miss Wall, or through opportunities via NCS (National Citizens Service) and DofE Award (Duke of Edinburgh Award).
Alongside our extra-curricular offer we also provide exciting and informative experiences for our students through educational trips, plus assemblies and workshops with inspirational speakers and industry experts to continue opening hearts, minds and doors for all students through our Enrichment offer.

Enrichment Programme Timetable 2022/23
We went paddleboarding with my friends and 2 amazing teachers.
We managed to get buckets full of rubbish. It was surprising to see how much rubbish was there, I think we made a big change.
