Learning

Notre Dame Prep School offers a rich and stimulating curriculum where academic excellence is balanced with an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities. We are especially proud of our strengths in drama, art, music, sport and languages.

The discovery of self is especially important during the Prep years. We draw out individual talents and develop personal strengths. Responding to the encouragement and care of our staff, the girls learn how to get the best from themselves and grow intellectually and socially. Resilience and resourcefulness are essential skills we nurture and develop. Knowing how to learn will forever remain one of life’s most valuable lessons.

We know our girls well and track their progress carefully to ensure a high quality experience for each individual. Every girl has challenging, objective targets against which her development is measured. This means we can intervene quickly, positively address weaknesses and keep our girls on track, to achieve above and beyond expectation.

Notre Dame Prep School is a lively, vibrant and happy place where girls have a strong sense of place and worth. We share the same aims as the Senior School. Pupils are highly motivated, secure in their values and able to make valuable contributions to society.
