Head PhotoSet in 17 acres of beautiful parkland in Cobham, Notre Dame School nestles in a picturesque 18th century mansion beside the River Mole. Despite the tranquil setting Notre Dame School is a hive of activity, with approaching a thousand children and teachers working hard in the important business of education. The school has an enviable reputation for the highest academic standards underpinned by over 400 years of international educational tradition in 30 countries. Established in England in 1937, the school has always had the philosophy that the greatest success comes from knowing how to learn and how to ask the right questions; training pupils to take an active role in reaching and exceeding early expectations. From the vibrant Nursery to the exciting Sixth Form, tomorrow's professionals acquire the skills, knowledge and qualifications that give them the best possible start in life. Recent A Level students gained the highest percentage of A* - B grades (84%) in over ten years and girls are going on to study at prestigious Russell Group universities in a wide range of disciplines. At GCSE over half the grades awarded were A and A*. Twin aims of academic success and self-confidence create rounded, compassionate, highly qualified and wise young women. Past pupils proliferate the professional sphere world-wide, many of whom enthusiastically retain links to Notre Dame.

The school is filled with a strong sense of purpose, offering a wide-ranging and active education with facilities encompassing six new science laboratories, music and drama studios, sports fields, indoor swimming pool, dedicated Sixth Form Centre, a forest school for the youngest pupils, and a fully equipped, West End quality theatre seating over 370. The school is currently developing its all-weather facilities to complement the existing outdoor and indoor netball and sports facilities. The girls participate in choirs, sports teams, orchestras, language groups, outreach work, craft clubs, swimming squads and debating societies. The school councils for the different age groups and the peer mentoring and 'big sister' system provide pastoral care in a place that values the individual and always stretches a hand to help others, leading to charity initiatives as well as a happy and fulfilled community. Leadership is prized and all are encouraged to fully engage in the life of the school. In recent years educational research has shown that this type of all-round education adds limitless value to the lives and experiences of our young people, as well as enhancing academic success and personal confidence.
