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.

Summer 2019 Exam Session
The Summer 2019 Exam Session will start on Monday 13th May 2019 and finish on Tuesday 25th June 2019.
The exam boards have designated Wednesday 26th June as 'contingency day' for the Summer 2019 Exam Session. This means that if exams cannot be held on any day in the 2019 exam session due to circumstances outside the school's control, alternative exams may be have to be held on Wednesday 26th June instead. All candidates for the summer 2019 exam session should remain available until that day. Students and parents are therefore advised not to make holiday travel arrangements before Thursday 27th June 2019.
Payment for Exam Fees
All exam entry fees, where applicable, should be paid using Wisepay.
