Description

For a century and a half Notre Dame High School has occupied a central position in Norwich, and within the Roman Catholic community of East Anglia. This book traces the school's founding, the development of the school site, its transition from a Catholic convent with a day and boarding school to a direct grant girls' grammar school, through to its becoming a mixed comprehensive and today's academy. Drawing on the school's archive, and the memories and experiences of past and present pupils and staff, a vivid picture emerges of an energetic and progressive school that continues to build on the values of its founding Sisters. This book will appeal to all members of the Notre Dame community, and to anyone with a passing interest in education and the history of Catholicism in East Anglia.show more
