Faith & 1804 Society
'To do small things with great love'
Notre Dame Catholic College continues to maintain its own distinct ethos and the faith-based principles of Catholicism, though, as always, all faiths are respected and we embrace the multicultural dimension that students bring to the college.
The College Chapel is an integral part of the new building. Its prominent position in the centre of the school allows it to be accessible to all. The tradition, history and spirituality of the original Notre Dame Hall in Everton Valley was valued by both staff and students and so the decision was made to bring the original stained glass windows to the new building to feature in the new chapel.
Collective worship is an important part of our daily activity. Each morning students will register with their form tutor for 15 minutes. This provides an opportunity for reflection and prayer and for all members of the college to celebrate their beliefs and values and to support the spiritual development of the staff and students.
Sixth form students participate in designated RE days covering a number of relevant topics including environmental awareness, CAFOD, relationship education, effects of criminality, Christian discipleship.
The 1804 Society is a student organisation named in honour of the founding year of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur by St. Julie Billiart. It was established to uphold the traditions and beliefs of the Sisters of Notre Dame as well as working with younger students to develop leadership skills and community cohesion. The students are ambassadors for the college at annual traditions and celebrations.
