Notre Dame School is an independent Catholic girls day school located in Cobham, Surrey, England. The school includes both a preparatory school and a senior school.


Notre Dame School was founded at Burwood House in 1937, as a member of the Company of Mary Our Lady (a Catholic Foundation founded by St Jeanne de Lestonnac in 1607). In 2003 the school’s ownership passed from The Company of Mary Our Lady to a charitable trust, and is now managed by the trustees and a board of governors, several of whom are Sisters from the religious institute. The present headmistress was appointed in 2003.[1]


Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Archbishop of Westminster, was the main celebrant at a special Mass held at the school to celebrate both the 70th anniversary of the school and 400 years of the Company of Mary Our Lady on Tuesday 15 May 2007. The Mass was also attended by His Excellency Archbishop Faustino Sainz Muñoz, Apostolic Nuncio, Bishop Kieran Conry and Bishop Bernard Longley.
