In the first three years of the senior school, girls follow a broad academic programme which allows them to experience a variety of subjects from which they then select options to study at IGCSE/GCSE. St Catherine’s offers a wide variety of A-level subjects in the sixth-form, providing girls with a perfect platform for higher education choices. Thinking Skills and a PPPE programme, plus regular lecture slots complement the curriculum. All pupils have iPads.
Games & The Arts
The Anniversary Halls provides exceptional facilities. These include a sports hall, fully equipped fitness suite, dance studio and indoor pool. In addition there is a large assembly/performance hall with superb acoustics for music and drama productions. We promote an ethos of ‘sport for all’, encouraging every girl, whether an elite sports woman or playing for the sheer fun of it. Own dance school.
Girls are welcome to join our dynamic and successful school as day pupils, or as full or weekly boarders. Six school houses underpin the pastoral provision where girls feel valued and supported. ‘House spirit’ is strong as is a huge sense of fun and loyalty to the school and each other.
St Catherine’s girls go on to study at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK and beyond.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
Mrs Phillips believes that girls thrive best, both academically and pastorally, in a single-sex environment where happiness is the key to successful learning. St Catherine’s girls go out into the world confident that there is nothing that a woman cannot do.
St Catherine’s pupils’ attitudes to learning are exemplary and they enjoy a strong rapport with their teachers and peers. Staff create an ambience of encouragement where learning thrives. By the time girls leave St Catherine’s, they are able to think critically, have high aspirations and the self-belief that there are few things they cannot achieve.
