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, Bramley is a school where talents are both identified and developed and where we strive to ensure that each girl has the opportunities not only to achieve, but to excel. Girls who like to keep busy, who embrace challenges and are interested in the world beyond their own will benefit from the all-round education offered. The St Catherine’s Association offers an exciting menu of work experience and careers advice.
