Notre Dame School is an independent Catholic girls’ day school located in Cobham, Surrey. Founded in 1937 by nuns from the Company of Our Lady Mary, the school came under the authority of a charitable trust in 2003.


In Year 7, all girls study the core subjects: English, mathematics, theology, biology, chemistry and physics, in addition to MFL, Latin, history, geography, ICT, music, drama, art, PE, swimming, textiles technology and food technology.


The school operates a House system consisting of four Houses, enabling girls to forge happy relationships and take part in a variety of sporting, musical and dramatic competitions throughout the year.


The school’s ethos is grounded in Christian values whilst simultaneously respecting the faiths and cultures of the members of its community. Notre Dame recognises and nurtures individual potential in all areas of learning and fully invests in girls’ academic, personal, moral and spiritual development, enabling them to mature into responsible citizens and valued participants in their communities.

The English paper examines both comprehension and writing skills, including inference, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation. Marks will be awarded for good use of imagination, creativity, form, purpose, organisation, cohesion and sentence structure.


The maths exam assesses your daughter’s problem-solving abilities and arithmetic skills. The paper may include questions on number, measurement, geometry, algebra and statistics.


The Non-Verbal Reasoning test measures her ability to understand, interpret and problem-solve, assessing logic and intelligence rather than knowledge.
