We aim to ensure that all students leaving the College can become adults capable of thriving on life’s challenges, so developing skills such as good decision making and taking responsibility are important to us. These skills are not acquired by accident. Students need to be given choices and allowed to make mistakes, then encouraged to learn from the errors they have made.
In order to make new challenges available to students, the College offers an extensive range of extracurricular activities, including a performing arts tour, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, public speaking competitions and educational visits which include, amongst many others, trips to France and Spain, skiing trips, and expeditions to Nepal and Sumatra.
At Catmose College, students are encouraged to develop skills of initiative and leadership; so, throughout a student’s time at College we offer a range of opportunities, including; sports and dance leaders, community volunteers, student councillors and governors, prefects, subject ambassadors and house captains.
