CATS College is a co-educational, day and boarding sixth-form college with campuses in three UK cities: London, Cambridge and Canterbury. We provide highly individualised education to students aged 14 and older, in a mature, responsible environment which prepares young people for university life.
CATS College is not a traditional boarding school. We don’t have a uniform; we don’t have compulsory clubs or sports. Instead, students pursue their academic studies with committed, enthusiastic teachers, in small classes; and outside their academic studies, they make their own choices – although we make sure they have lots of options and many layers of support, both academic and pastoral. In this way, we feel they are best prepared for the challenges they face once they have left the safety of school.
One college, three locations
Students can choose from our three campuses – in Bloomsbury Square, London; in the heart of Cambridge, adjacent to colleges of the University; or Canterbury, one of the UK’s safest university cities. The campuses alloffer the same quality of academic and pastoral care and the same ethos of managed responsibility.
Wide choice of academic options
All three campuses offer one-year GCSEs and a wide range of A-level subjects (available in three-, five- and six-term programmes) and University Foundation programmes for international students. We also offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and a two-year GCSE option in Canterbury. Students have individual learning plans, daily tutor sessions, weekly written assessments, and a range of additional support such as the Medics and Oxbridge programmes. We also offer free extra tuition for students who need help to achieve their learning objectives.
