Catmose College is an oversubscribed secondary academy school on Huntsmans Drive in Oakham, Rutland. The majority of students are drawn from the county town of Oakham and surrounding villages, although many are attracted from a wider area including Leicestershire and Melton through parental choice.
The College is one of the highest achieving in Rutland and Leicestershire. Our Ofsted report in February 2012 rated the College ‘Outstanding’ in all categories. We offer a broad range of experiences beyond the classroom to build independence, resilience and leadership skills that are critical for success in adult life. More details on the College can be found via the menu above or on the DfE.
We believe that great schools are not made by the buildings they occupy, but by the people who work within them. We are proud at Catmose College to have both committed staff and talented, hardworking students whose contributions make our College truly exceptional. Our approach to how we work with our students is detailed within our behaviour management policy.
Our primary aim is to encourage each student to become a mature, independently minded individual who has the necessary skills and knowledge to be of value to themselves and society. We know that every student is talented, so our role as educators is to ensure these talents are fully realised. To achieve this, we have high expectations of every student, emphasising the importance of hard work and doing one’s best in every circumstance. This ethos and our values are further elaborated on in the prospectus below. Our Transformation Plan is a detailed development plan which outlines in greater detail our ethos and values alongside our improvement planto continually improve the service we offer our community.
