ISSUE 1: Welcome to Student Connect

We have created Student Connect with students in mind in order to have our own perspective heard within our community. Our issues include an insight into what happens around College. This can also include external achievements. We are a group of young aspiring reporters, all with a passion for the arts, driving us to get more involved into students voices and opinions. We hope you enjoy our newsletter and hopefully more to come! 

Watch what the cast had to say to our reporters.

We have had such a range of successes in sport this term.


A number of the Catmose students participated in the BGSA Regional competition this term with every Milano team qualifying and competing. A special mention to the under 16 mixed team who were second overall and second as a region, as well as the under 13 mixed team coming 3rd as a region.


We have had great success in basketball this past term with the Year 11 boys team making it all the way to the semi-finals. Well done to all involved and a huge congratulations to the Year 7 girls team who won their game in the final at The Morningside Arena.

Sports Hall Athletics

The Year 7 and 8 teams had their first competition earlier on in the term where both teams competed very well in all events coming in first place and qualifying to represent team Leicestershire in the finals.


The full contact rugby teams did amazingly this term with all year groups competing in their first games. Congratulations to the Year 7 and 9 boys for winning their fixtures.


We had a great dance show with a variety of styles, themes and group sizes with a total of 25 dances. All dancers should be incredibly proud of their performances and the time and dedication they put into such an amazing event.

  • Key stage 3 and 4 swimming gala

Student life

Student life in Catmose College is very intriguing with all of the fun and interesting things happening. One of the these is the knitting of hats and other items that have been crafted for charity by a small group of Year 8 girls. This is what they had to say: 

“We are a small fundraising group based in Rutland, ages 12-13. In our most recent project, there were four of us, Beth, Lola-Rose, Charlotte and Flossi.   

On March 4th, we set up a stall at Oakham Arts and Crafts Market where we sold a selection of handmade products for UNICEF’s Ukraine project, helping children affected by war. 

Our products included crochet hats and brooches, bags, snoods and more, all of which we made ourselves. 

At the end of the project, we made over £210. We hope to return to the market in April, raising money for a local food bank.”  

They are amazing and look like they are going to help a lot of people. There are so many happy and ready to learn faces all around College which is great and we can’t wait to see the future of all the students.

Snow Day

On Thursday 9th – Friday 10th we had an amazing sight of snow around the College, it looked beautiful. All the student and staff around the school really enjoyed it- especially the students.
