Year 9 (13+)

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

Your points of contact 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 along with a £100 registration fee. 


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 closing date for 11+ registrations for 2023 Year 9 entry is 11th November 2020.  The examination will be on Tuesday 5th January 2021.

Candidates may also apply at any point during Year 8 for 13+ entry, although this is subject to availability of spaces.

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.
