'We are what we want to be by the efforts we are willing to make'
Moving on to the next phase of your education is an exciting and challenging time and we warmly welcome students from other schools, including all faiths and backgrounds, as well as Year 11 students from our main school.
We have very high expectations of all of our pupils and it is assumed that you will have a serious approach to your studies and make every effort to fulfil your potential in all areas of College life.
Notre Dame Catholic College believes in lifelong learning and actively encourages all students to continue education and training beyond 16 in order to prepare them for a place in Further or Higher Education and eventually the world of work and the responsibilities of adult life.
Hard work will be essential if you are to be successful and you will receive excellent tuition and pastoral support from staff at the College.
We are rightly proud of not only our academic results and outstanding curriculum and teaching but also the support and encouragement our staff provide for the students in their care.
Complementing your Level 3 studies will be a range of enrichment activities which will enable you to grow in maturity and social responsibility. They will help you to develop initiative, independence, leadership and organisational skills, all of which are essential tools when applying to university or employment.
Much success is due to the quality of teaching and learning and hard work of staff, who know the students well and are able to offer individual support and guidance. Students are well supported in their applications to university, college or employment. It is our aim to provide the best educational opportunities, both academically, and in the wider sense of developing the whole person.
We aim to create a friendly, safe and supportive environment where our students enjoy an excellent standard of teaching, access to a wide and challenging choice of courses and the guidance needed to ensure success. We encourage our students to continue into higher education, training or employment and support them whilst they are with us to make the best possible choices and decisions for their future.
