While the focus of our Sixth Form is academic study, we recognise the importance of producing well-rounded individuals with a range of interests.
Notre Dame has a strong tradition in the Performing Arts and the Sixth Form play an active role in this area. The Sixth Form write, organise and produce the popular Christmas Talent Show.
The Sixth Form play a prominent role in our School Choirs and Orchestra. As the senior members of these musical groups, they are role models for the younger students. Often taking lead roles and performing as soloists the sixth form are very important to the creative life in the school.
In sport there is a Senior Netball Team which regularly plays fixtures against other local schools and tours abroad every two years. The PE department are always open to suggestions for sports teams and look to run sessions in Sixth Form PE lessons that are geared towards the Sixth Formers’ choices.
At Notre Dame we also run an annual Sixth Form only ski trip, which has recently visited Austria. Regular Theatre Trips are offered and this year we have a residential trip to Washington and New York.
Many of our girls continue with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme in Sixth Form and work towards both their Silver and Gold awards supported by our Duke of Edinburgh coordinator.
