Girls join Reception in the September following their fourth birthday. We are now taking registrations for September 2020 and September 2021 entry into Reception.*
Although our school site is largely closed at present due to COVID-19, our Admissions Office remains open and ready to help you will any enquiries you may have. Your main contact throughout the entire admissions process is our Admissions Manager, Mrs Natalie Foreman. Please feel free to contact her at any time if you have any questions - email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01932 869993.
Your first step on the admissions journey is to visit our School. Families often find it helpful to attend one of our Open Events in the first instance - please click on the 'Open Events' link on the menu to see the dates of forthcoming events and to pre-register.
We are holding an event especially for families interesting in Reception - 'Starting School - Meet The Head' - at 8.45am on Wednesday 20th November. Please go to our Open Events page to book a place.
You are also most welcome to contact our Admissions Office to arrange a private meeting and tour with our Prep/Nursery School Headmistress, Mrs Amélie Morgan, or the Head of Early Years, Ms Melanie Lehman.
If you would like to proceed with an application, having visited us, we would ask you please to complete our registration form and return it to us with a fee of £50.
Notre Dame is a selective school and wherever possible we do like to meet all of our prospective children. Following registration, Reception children will be invited in for a short morning Taster Session prior to offers being made. This will include informal and low key observation through play.
For overseas applicants, we are able to arrange for assessments to be carried in a child's existing school as necessary.
* Reception registrations are welcome at any time of year. As our main entry point is September, we suggest a March closing date for those needing offers by Easter. Applications received after this date are still most welcome and any offers will be made from April onwards, subject to spaces being available.
