Introduction

St Catherine’s is an academically selective Church of England School with a strong focus on roundedness. It offers all its pupils access to a first rate education in the broadest sense. There are 900 pupils, aged 4 – 18, including some 260 in the Preparatory School, 160 boarders in the Senior School (from 11+) and 170 in the Sixth Form.

Founded in 1885 as a girls’ school for day and boarding pupils, the School’s traditions are well established. The first hundred years of its history reflect the School’s steady evolution into a forward-looking educational establishment for young women which still retains the best values of the past whilst embracing new educational approaches and committing to preparing young women for their ongoing education and lives beyond School. In September 2010 the School celebrated its 125th Anniversary: proud of its past and optimistic for its future.

In 2014 we were proud to welcome Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall, on a visit during which she officially opened the 125th Anniversary Halls and the refurbished Speech Hall Library. Her links with the School go back to her great, great grandfather, Lord Ashcombe, one of our Founders, and in 2015 we were delighted that she agreed to become our Patron.

Set in the beautiful countryside of the Surrey Hills, 3 miles south of Guildford, the School’s 25 acre campus in the village of Bramley, boasts up-to-date facilities – all on site -as well as attractive boarding accommodation for Senior School pupils.

Our pupils enjoy outstanding success in every field – academic, sporting, cultural – and we are proud of all that we help them to achieve. We then watch with equal pride the many things that our alumnae go on to achieve in their lives and professional careers beyond School, and welcome them back warmly as lifelong members of the St. Catherine’s Association who provide invaluable careers input and networks for our current pupils.

By creating an environment in which their confidence can grow, we ensure that our girls thrive. How do we create such an exceptional environment? By treating each girl as an individual, by constant encouragement and by striving to ensure that every pupil is happy at school.

 

Features
