A Welcome to Notre Dame RC Secondary Girls’ School
by Sister Anne Marie Niblock, Head Teacher
In choosing a secondary school for your daughter, we know that you will be looking for one where she will be happy, where she will be learning in a community with high expectations and where she will receive the best education possible.
Notre Dame RC Girls’ School is delighted with the excellent examination results that our students received this summer.
This year the government introduced the new measures of Progress 8 and Attainment 8. We believe this gives a clearer and much fairer indication of how each individual student has performed. Our results in these new measures are proof of the fantastic progress our students make. Our Progress 8 score this year, when validated, is likely to be a fabulous 1.28. This means that on average every student achieved a grade and a quarter higher than was predicted by the government, based on their end of Key Stage Two SATs results. This reflects the diligence of the students and staff who make an enormous effort to ensure our girls achieve and go beyond their potential.
Top performing subjects included Physics (100%), Spanish (97%), Chemistry (95%), Sociology (91%) and Geography (90%). 65% of Notre Dame students achieved at least 5 A*-C, including English and Maths. Maths achieved 72% and English Language and Literature achieved 70%. For the results in all other subjects please visit the Results page on our school website.
We are also thrilled with our AS examination results that some of our students took in Year 11. 100% of students passed French; 97% passed Spanish, with 21% achieving an A grade; and 91% of students passed RE Philosophy and Ethics, with 73% being awarded an A grade.
Notre Dame remains committed to the education of their students –spiritually, academically and socially - and will continue to support and nurture each and every one of our students.
