1804 Society

The 1804 Society is a student organisation named in honour of the founding year of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur by St. Julie Billiart.

It was established to uphold the traditions and beliefs of the Sisters of Notre Dame and working with younger students to develop leadership skills and community cohesion.

The students act as college ambassadors at annual traditions and celebrations.

The 1804 Society members are also senior student council members working alongside council representatives from Key Stage 3 and 4 as the student voice.

Head Girl Angela said, “Notre Dame has played a big part in my life. It has helped to mould me into the person I am today. It is an honour to be given this chance to make a positive contribution to our school as Notre Dame is not just a school, it is a family where you get out of it what you put in

Reading Revolutionaries
In a world in which children are spending more and more time using computer games and social media we are proud that a group of our year 12 students are participating in a city wide initiative to bring back the love of reading. They have been taught the skills to re-engage children and work one to one with our younger students to introduce them to their favourite books.


There are numerous opportunities for students to develop their skills and learning outside of the classroom.

This year the 1804 society visited Notre Dame Namur in Belgium, History and Religious Studies students visited Auschwitz in Poland, Business students went to the Lake District, pupils studying Fashion went to exhibitions and galleries in London,

Dance students worked with the Rambert Dance Studio in Manchester as well as many of our students are part of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.

6th4Work within the community
The Annual Pensioners Christmas Party is always favourite event for our year 12 students.

Members of our wider community are invited to attend a festive event in which the students serve a lavish 3 course Christmas dinner with entertainment from the college choirs and a sing-along and games led by Father Christmas and his little helpers.

Supporting younger students
The sixth form students are role models to our younger students and mentor specific groups of pupils.

With an aim to encourage them and increase their confidence both academically and personally the mentors are a valuable and well respected resource within the school.
