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.

Exams can be a stressful experience, but we are here to help! There is also plenty of online help available for revision strategies and planning your studies. BBC Bitesize has some useful tips here:
