Catmose College has a number of service students (Kendrew Barracks, St George’s Barracks and RAF Wittering) whose families have a high level of mobility and deployment. We work in an effective partnership with the Armed Forces, and the Local Authority, to ensure the service students receive a high level of quality transition and learning, on entry to the College, and with on-going support.
We receive Service Pupil Premium funding for our service children, the spending whilst at the College’s discretion is in accordance with government policy. David acts as our Service Children’s liaison officer, his Service career gives him an insight into the impact that Service life can have on our students and their families.
