Notre Dame now has Humanities Specialist School status.
Our lead subject is English and the two other specialist subjects are Religious Studies and Drama.
Our aim is to raise standards by making lessons more active, using a range of teaching strategies to cater for different learning styles. The specialist departments will pioneer new approaches to teaching and learning.
Key features include:
More teaching staff and smaller class sizes.
More support staff to help make lessons more varied and exciting.
More active lessons - learning by doing and using different ways of learning.
More extra curricular activities.
More enrichment activities and working with different people - visiting actors, directors, authors and poets.
