We believe that everyone is unique and of equal value regardless of academic ability, class, creed, gender, race or wealth…. Mission Statement

The examinations period can be a stressful time for both students and parents and it is important that all those involved are as well informed as possible.

Some useful advice can be found here:




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 are ran to the same JCQ rules and regulations for 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.

The 2018 main summer exam session will commence on Monday 14th May and finish on Monday 25th June.

A level results will be distributed on Thursday 16th August 2018.

GCSE results will be distributed on Thursday 23rd August 2018.
