Principal’s Welcome

There are few decisions as important as where you choose for your child to attend secondary school. We want to help ensure that you have all of the information you need to make the right choice for you and your child.

We believe in the traditional values of education; that students do best when they are happy, behave well and are engaged in purposeful activity. Our approach blends high expectations with innovative practice to ensure that all students are able to achieve their potential. The College is about much more than just academic success, our ethos is one that embraces the whole person, not just what they accomplish in lessons but everything else that ensures they are ready for the challenges of the adult world. For example, students partake weekly in the ever-popular Electives programme, where lessons finish early to allow time for students to participate in a vast array of over 90 activities and learning, from Caribbean Cooking to Cricket, and Pottery Throw Down to Trampolining.

Students also benefit from an extremely wide array of trips and visits; in previous years these have included a performing arts trip to Liverpool, a photography trip to Iceland, cultural visits to Italy and Spain, a German exchange, a visit to the WWI battlefields and many, many more.

We pride ourselves on offering a bespoke approach to students’ needs, whether they are more able or need some extra support. Music, Sport and Academic Scholarships are awarded annually to students who can demonstrate excellent ability in their chosen area. The scholarships are designed to recognise exceptional talent and to provide the facilities, resources and staffing to allow high-ability students to achieve their potential.

When making decisions at the College, our guiding principle is simple, ‘Would it be good enough for our own children?’ By ensuring that the standards of everything we do meets this benchmark, we ensure that the quality of services we offer are exceptional.

If you decide that Catmose College is right for your child, we will do our best to ensure that they are successful, and that the experiences we offer will challenge and encourage them to do their best.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me at the College.

Stuart Williams, Principal

Engage, Explore and Achieve

Catmose College has a warm and friendly atmosphere where your child will be supported to develop to his or her full potential, not only academically but personally and socially. We want all of our students to have the academic qualifications, personal skills and confidence to take full advantage of the opportunities that await them upon leaving the college. We value each individual student, nurturing their skills and talents, whilst continually providing them with new experiences and challenges.
