Welcome from the Headmaster
Welcome to Notre Dame Preparatory School in Norwich. We are a Catholic Independent school with a strong Christian ethos, but we welcome children of all faiths and cultures. This openness to all children helps to enrich the unique atmosphere of the school.
Our website will give you a glimpse of the school; it is, however, only a small aspect of what we are about. We are a family style Prep School where children get an opportunity to develop their individual talents and gifts whilst integrating fully into a system which holds community at the centre. Visitors and prospective parents will often comment on the sense of purpose that is to be seen in every aspect of the school’s life. The best way to experience this atmosphere is through a visit where you can see the children and staff working together in a calm and disciplined way. A healthy work ethic and a sense of togetherness help to create the special ambience which is Notre Dame Prep School.
The school is developing and evolving all the time, looking to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
We are aware of our responsibilities as we prepare the pupils of today for the world of tomorrow. I am confident that as we develop our curricula and integrate new technologies and ideas we will still embrace the history of the school and continue to focus on the special ethos.
Notre Dame Prep school is renowned for polite, courteous and friendly children who move on to a wide range of senior schools fully prepared and ready to make the most of all the opportunities available.
I believe that children flourish when they feel confident, secure, happy and challenged. This is the Notre Dame Prep School that I invite you to come and see.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
As a Catholic school we endeavour to nurture a love of God through Jesus Christ in all our children. The school has an ethos of love and care and embraces children of all faiths.
Children are treated as individuals, respected, nurtured and encouraged to embrace and fulfil their potential in all areas of school life.
We foster positive relationships with peers and adults, looking for mutual respect.
We provide a wide-range of extra curricular actiities in order to develop the talents of each child.
