Notre Dame High School is a lively, Catholic Academy with a very special, warm ethos which is recognised by all who visit. In recent years it has been at the forefront of new approaches to teaching and learning. It has been recognised as a high performing school since 1994 in both its Ofsted outcomes and the various awards it has been given. In 2011 the school was recognised as one of the first 100 Teaching Schools nationally and became an Academy in 2012. We believe we are very fortunate to be able to work with young people, and our mission is to ensure that each of our students is valued as a unique individual, and that they know that they belong to a family, which bases itself on Gospel values.
