Notre Dame Catholic Girls’ School was founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame to provide education for girls of Roman Catholic families.

The school is conducted by its governing body as part of the Roman Catholic Church in accordance with its trust deed and instrument of government, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.  The school exists primarily to serve the Roman Catholic community and Roman Catholic girls always have priority of admission.  However, the Governing Body welcomes all applications, particularly from those of other denominations and faiths who support the religious ethos of the school.
