Gap Year or Volunteering
After leaving Notre Dame Sixth Form some students take the opportunity to take a gap year before continuing their studies at university or finding a job.
There are many options open to students on what to do with their 'year out' . Many school leavers choose to use their gap year to do voluntary or charity work abroad. You will find information about gap years and volunteering by clicking on the links below.

The noticeboard outside outside the 6th form office will be updated regularly with opportunities in this area. If required we can organise a one to one careers guidance meeting with a professional Careers Advisor to give further advice and guidance on gap year and volunteering opportunities. Please see your Head of Year for further information.
