What the school says...
St Catherines, Bramley, provides an all-round, outstanding education for girls in an environment where there is no embarrassment in working hard or being successful. The vast majority of leavers secure their first choice universities including Oxbridge. But this is no academic hot-house. There is a raft of extra curricular activities - Art, Drama, Music and Sport and, with the completion of the Anniversary Halls, there are superb facilities both for sport and the performing arts which are second to none.
St Catherine's is located in Bramley, 3 miles south of Guildford in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Surrey Hills. We are within an hour of central London by train and convenient for both Heathrow and Gatwick International Airports. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
All girls are screened shortly after entry to the school to help identify any extra provision they may require. This enables all members of staff to accommodate each girl's particular strengths and weaknesses. Should it be deemed necessary, on consultation with parents, the School is able to provide individual support for pupils. This support is closely monitored and reviewed on a regular basis. Nov 09.
