About Notre Dame RC School

We are a Catholic girls secondary school. This post will work across our school and another secondary school in Plymouth CAST, St Boniface's College, an 11 - 16 boys secondary school.

Notre Dame School is
an optimistic school promoting Christian attitudes
a school where every person belongs
a school which values learning and high aspiration
a school which rises to challenges and celebrates achievement
Notre Dame educates the whole person: head, heart and hands

St Boniface’s College is a Roman Catholic Christian Community.
It is committed to striving for excellence in all its members through the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum involving spiritual, moral, cultural, academic, social and physical education, delivered to the whole young person.
All teaching and learning is done within the teaching of the Catholic Faith.

Notre Dame is located in the north of Plymouth about 1.5 miles from St Boniface's College.

The schools are lead by Mrs Kate White, Executive Headteacher, and the successful candidate will join the joint Senior Leadership Team.

Please see the websites for both schools. We are jointly lead, but both schools are separate organisations with their own individual identities.

This is not a reserved post and you don't need to be a Catholic to apply. We ask all of our staff to support our ethos and feel comfortable working in a faith school.
