What the school says...
'CATS Canterbury is a lively and top performing school which was won both national and international awards for its work. With over 160 university visits to the college last year including almost all the Times top 20 universities our preparation for university entrance is outstanding. We have won Awards of Excellence from the Independent Schools Association, the International Schools Award and were shortlisted for Independent School of the Year. Our results have put us in the top 5 Independent 6th form colleges in the UK for A level grades A*-B.
Boarding at CATS Canterbury is exceptional as you would expect of a school drawing many students from the international elite. Almost all our students board and single ensuite rooms and a central campus are the norm. There are limited shared ensuite rooms. Our boarding was rated by the Inspectorate as Excellent and we have won the Times Educational Supplement Boarding Initiative of the year award.
We are a family friendly school - the Principal lives on site and has an open door policy to his office during the day as do all Senior Staff. We have electronic 'Tell Us' systems to listen carefully to student voice and a strong focus on Global Leadership. We offer nearly 10 leadership awards at the college and many activities specifically designed to support your individual subject University applications. We hold Global Leadership Days each year with a range of leadership activities and guests including top hospitals for medics, Oxfordbridge and LSE visits as well as exciting residential trips including to the United Nations in New York.
Our University Foundation programme for overseas students was the first in the UK - running for nearly 30 years, and we are an IB world school. We also offer one year Pre A level and IB courses and the two year GCSE. We also offer a full range of A level courses. We have been awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise and the Principal has been awarded the MBE by the Queen for services to education.
You are always welcome to visit us and meet our amazing students and staff who are happy to show you the college. ' ...Read more
