Welcome to Catmose College, a secondary academy school on Huntsmans Drive in Oakham, Rutland.
We are very fortunate to benefit from a purpose-built and fully equipped building and have hardworking and talented students whose contributions make our College truly exceptional.
We offer an extensive curriculum both inside and outside the classroom to ensure that every student can develop their existing strengths as well as discover new ones. Our academic courses are complemented and enhanced by an ‘electives’ programme which encompasses the creative arts, sport, music and drama with many further opportunities also available in our flourishing extra curriculum programme.

I have worked at Catmose Federation since I was appointed as Vice Principal in June 2012. The time has flown by. It has been a pleasure to work with talented and hardworking students and staff. I often show people around the College and they are universal in their praise of the calm atmosphere and first class facilities. The Principal and senior team have been very supportive of any new initiatives that I have tried to introduce or in the way I have handled situations. We have just been confirmed as a Teaching School – a project I have led on since appointment. The philosophy is to move roles around the senior team on an annual basis and this has really helped me develop professionally in a short period of time. If you are interested in a vacancy here please do book in a visit to the College – we look forward to welcoming you.
I am in my eighth year at Catmose College and have progressed from Director of Music to Pastoral Manager in 2015. As teachers, it is our desire to provide a wealth of opportunities to our students in order to nurture their continual development; however, this is also true for all staff at Catmose. On offer, is a bespoke programme of CPD which covers a plethora of topics for staff to enhance their professional development. Furthermore, the College heavily invested in my own professional development when I trained to become an Ofsted Inspector. Catmose College is a unique school and I am sure you will relish the many opportunities that the College has to offer.
I have enjoyed my time at Catmose very much, and the school has provided support for me to excel in academia, music, sport and extra – curricular activities. I have tried to fully immerse myself in college life since I started at Catmose, and I have had some fantastic experiences and have gained invaluable skills.
Catmose has encouraged me to push and challenge myself in order to succeed in academia, and all my teachers have been incredibly supportive, guiding me through my academic journey. However, this does not apply just to me, all students are supported equally academically and are all given help to succeed.
I have broadened my horizons by taking part in the academic scholarship programme, and have participated in a wide range of extra curricular activities, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and the school jazz band.
Since I joined the college in year 8, I have had some once in a lifetime opportunities, which will prepare me well for life after Catmose. I have made many friends, and I will always be grateful to Catmose College in the way everyone has always supported me.
My time at Catmose has been truly amazing. I have been provided with so many opportunities and lots of great memories. Since year 7, I have had an immense amount of encouragement and support to try everything on offer, such as a sports scholarship, arts award, productions, school trips and even the role of head girl! I have learnt that there is so much more to learning than lessons. The College has allowed me to experience so much and from each experience I have gained lots of new skills and knowledge. This has really helped build my character and is something I am very grateful for. A word of advice is don’t be afraid to fail. By trying and experiencing new things you might just discover a new talent within yourself. I am very proud to be a part of the college, and it is such an honour to represent it!
