Welcome by the Head & Deputy Head Girl
“We can confidently say that Notre Dame has shaped us into who we are today, and allowed us to surpass the limits of what we thought we were capable of before joining the school. ”
Notre Dame nurtures every student in a supportive and encouraging environment, which enables us to reach our full potential. Academic success is encouraged and supported by teachers who are willing to give up their spare time to help students who are struggling with work; helping us to track our growth and feel confident in our own abilities. Throughout our time here, we have found our lessons to be fun and engaging while also challenging us. Small class sizes have resulted in us developing close relationships with our teachers and peers that reinforce the safe learning environment which is created in the classroom. This ensures that every student feels comfortable asking questions and trying new things, allowing us to deepen our subject knowledge and contribute to the family feel of the Notre Dame community.
Not only does Notre Dame help us learn and grow academically but also as individuals, enabling us to become diligent, resilient and kind people. We can confidently say that Notre Dame has shaped us into who we are today, and allowed us to surpass the limits of what we thought we were capable of before joining the school. The skills we have learnt here will not only be useful for school life but will aid us even after we have completed our time here. Most importantly, Notre Dame prioritises the well-being of students with an incredible support system in place and frequent education on mental health. Our passions and individuality are celebrated and embraced in the school community with many opportunities for students to take part in activities such as drama, sport, music and art. Furthermore, student voice is so highly valued which also enables new clubs and activities to be implemented at the request of students.
As our time at Notre Dame nears its end, we look back on our time here with memories we will cherish forever. We are so appreciative of the opportunities, support and second family the school has provided us with, and would not hesitate to recommend the school to others.
