Year 9 (13+)

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

Our Admissions Office is ready to help you with any enquiries you may have. Your point of contact with the school throughout the admissions process is our Admissions Manager, Mrs Natalie Foreman. Please feel free to get in touch with her 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 and availability of spaces.  Our standard registration form should be submitted along with a non-refundable registration fee of £125.


Candidates for 13+ entry are invited to sit our 11+ entrance examination in the November of Year 6 and request deferred entry at the point of registration.  The closing date for 11+ registrations for 2025 Year 9 entry is Monday 24th October 2022.  The examination will be on Friday 25th November 2022.  The acceptance deadline for deferred entry places is the end of the first week of January of Year 8, after which point candidates holding offers will be added to the Year 9 waiting list that will be in place at the time.

Subject to availability of spaces, candidates may also apply at any point during Year 8 for 13+ entry, and will be required to sit our 13+ entrance assessments.

For all applicants, we request a reference from the student's existing 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.  For further information, please see the Scholarships tab on the menu or contact our Admissions Office.

Overseas Candidates

For overseas applicants, we are able to arrange for assessments to be carried in a child's existing school as necessary.
