Sixth Form

Welcome To The Sixth Form
at Notre Dame

Notre Dame Sixth Form is known as ND6 and offers you the freedom to pursue subjects that really excite you in a dynamic, academic and supportive setting where hard work coexists with laughter and an authentic sense of belonging. Our ND6 students can choose between 26 A Level subjects, taught in small tutorial-style sessions by dynamic, future-focused specialists.

Sixth Form is only five terms long and are crucial formative years. At Notre Dame, we aim to understand each and every student and guide them to explore their new freedoms and responsibilities alongside the challenges, preoccupations and pressures of modern life. Ultimately, we want to offer all students every opportunity to explore who they want to be and what they would like to do next.

Life In ND6

We often say there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ ND6 student. All our students are valued for precisely who they are, which brings out unique qualities and we encourage personal journeys in pursuit of their own ambitions. We celebrate diversity and have a culture of respect and inclusion that runs authentically throughout the culture of our school.

Our 117 co-curricular clubs and activities are paramount to the opportunity at Notre Dame, whether that be Young Enterprise, The Peer Education Project, Model UN, sports teams, drama or music performances, there really is something for everyone.
