A decision on the future of Scotland’s last remaining all-girls school will be made next month.

Council chiefs are expected to rule in late November whether boys should be allowed into Notre Dame High School – with a meeting of the City Administration Committee scheduled for November 28.

Consultation closed in May, with almost 5,000 responses, and a paper, including the statistics of responses and an Education Scotland report, will be made public three weeks before the committee makes its decision.

Results from the consultation process have been shared with interested parties.

Campaigns group Girls for Notre Dame and Notre Dame High 4 All both argued the statistics support their position.

Figures show that around 53 per cent of votes were returned for the first two options – 39.9 per cent voted to keep the status quo while 13.4 per cent said they would want to keep the school single sex and expand the catchment area.

However, 45.9 per cent of respondents said they would like to make the school co-educational.

Currently, Notre Dame High School has two associated primary schools; Notre Dame Primary School and St Ninian’s Primary School. Some girls attending Corpus Christi Primary School are also entitled to transfer due to a shared catchment area.

The West End school has a capacity of 800, with around 720 pupils currently enrolled. The current school roll includes a significant number of placing requests from over 50 primary schools across the city.

A council spokeswoman said: “The Schools (Consultation)(Scotland) Act 2010 requires a formal response to the consultation paper to be prepared. This response document will detail the statistics of responses, the Education Scotland report, public meetings, Equality Impact Assessments, and meetings with groups of children.”
