Notre Dame School welcomes applications for 13+ entry, including scholarship applications.

Your point of contacts with the school throughout the admissions process are our Admissions Manager, Mrs Natalie Foreman, and Director of Admissions and Marketing Mrs Beccy Johnson. Please feel free to get in touch with them at any time if you have any questions - or telephone 01932 869993.

Entry at 13+ is subject to success in either our 11+ or 13+ entrance examination.  Our standard registration form should be submitted by the closing date along with a £100 registration fee.  The closing date for registrations for 11+ and 13+ examinations is 12th November 2018.


Our usual route for 13+ admissions is for candidates to sit our 11+ entrance examination in the January of Year 6 and request deferred entry at the point of registration.  The examination will be on Tuesday 8th January 2019.

Candidates may also apply during Year 8 for 13+ entry, subject to availability of spaces.

For all applicants, we request a reference from the student's exisiting school and ask for copies of the most recent school report as part of the assessment process.

13+ Scholarships

Candidates are invited to apply during Year 8 for academic, art, sport, music and drama 13+ scholarships.  A supplementary scholarship application form should be submitted by the closing date, which will be mid-November in the year in which a candidate is in Year 8.  In 2018, the closing date is Monday 19th November.  For further information, please see the Scholarships tab on the menu or contact our Admissions Office.
