We believe that everyone is unique and of equal value regardless of academic ability, class, creed, gender, race or wealth…. Mission Statement
The administration of both internal and external examinations has now become a "year round activity”. We also hold mock examinations for Years 10 and 11 (incorporating short fat groups) which run to the same JCQ rules and regulations as external examinations. This familiarises our students with the examination process before the real thing.
Notre Dame High School are committed to making every effort to ensure that the examinations are conducted in a way that will cause as little stress as possible and aim to help all our students achieve their full potential.

Please note, the exam boards have identified Wednesday 24th June 2020 as Exam Contingency Day. This means that in the unlikely event that an exam in the summer 2020 session cannot be held on its scheduled day because of unforeseen circumstances, such as a national emergency, the exam may instead be held on Wednesday 24th June. Students should therefore be available for exams until and including Wednesday 24th June. Holidays should not be booked until after that date.
