    Year 7 Admissions (September 2020 entry)

    Admissions – September 2020 Year 7 entry - Procedures

    Parents of Year 6 pupils in September 2019 who wish to apply for a High School place for September 2020 at Notre Dame are advised that they should apply both to the Council (via their own Local Authority) AND to Notre Dame (using the school's green Supplementary Information Form)

    Important deadline dates

    • 11th September 2019: County Admissions Round opens.
    • Thursday 19th September 2019: Open Evening for Parents of Prospective September 2020 Pupils: the school is open for viewing between 5pm and 8pm. The School Prospectus and Supplementary Information Form will be available. Talks will be held in the Sports Hall:  1st presentation at 5:30pm (surnames A - M) and 2nd presentation at 6:30pm (surnames N - Z). We regret that there is no parking available on the school site.
    • Monday 7th  - Tuesday 8th October 2019: Open Days.  Take a tour with some of our Year 8 students and experience the school in action through their eyes. Please see the 'Open Days' tab on this webpage for more details.
    • 31st October 2019: Deadline for Applications to be received.
    • 2nd March 2020: Letters confirming allocated places are sent by the Local Authority, or are sent by e-mail if you have applied online.

    Please note that no child can be guaranteed a place at the school. Parents should apply both to the Local Authority AND to the school to ensure your child is placed in the appropriate category for admissions purposes. The school is likely to be heavily oversubscribed so regretfully some parents and students may be disappointed.

    Please note that our named Catholic schools supported by the Diocese of East Anglia are St Benet's Catholic Primary School, (Beccles, Suffolk); St Edmund's Catholic Primary School, (Bungay, Suffolk); St Augustine's Catholic Primary School (Costessey, Norfolk); St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School (Norwich, Norfolk); St Mary and St Peter Catholic Primary School (Gorleston, Norfolk), St Martha's Catholic Primary School (King's Lynn) and St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary School (Lowestoft, Suffolk).

    Admissions to other Year Groups

    All applications MUST go through your local County Council School Admissions team. For most applicants that will be Norfolk County Council or Suffolk County Council. Councils then approach the school to determine availability of places. Please note that Notre Dame is one of the most oversubscribed High Schools in Norfolk, so we rarely have such 'in year' places available.
