Boys and girls join Reception in the September following their fourth birthday. We are now taking registrations for September 2018 and September 2019 entry into Reception.
Closing date for September 2019 entry is 1st March 2019*
Your main contacts throughout the entire admissions process are our Admissions Manager, Mrs Natalie Foreman and Director of Admissions and Marketing, Mrs Beccy Johnson. Please feel free to contact them 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 hold an Early Years Funtime Event in May of each year and we invite children to come along to Meet Father Christmas And His Reindeer in December. All children up to the age of 5 are welcome to attend, along with siblings and family members.
You are also most welcome to contact our Admissions Office to arrange a private meeting and tour with our Head of Early Years, Ms Melanie Lehman or our Prep School Head, Miss Merinda D'Aprano.
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.
* Reception registrations are welcome at any time of year. As our main entry point is September, we have a March closing date for those applying to join us in the following September. This closing date enables us to get all offers to parents before Easter. Applications received after this date are still most welcome and any offers will be made from April onwards, subject to spaces being available.
