CATS College


Type of school : Co-educational

Age Range : 14-17


Since our foundation in 1952, we have grown into one of the most innovative and successful independent education providers in UK and USA.

Our philosophy is simple: we combine exceptionally high-quality teaching with a deep understanding of our students and their personal needs. We do this in a welcoming and enriching environment, a home-from-home where students are free to develop their potential both academically and personally.

Our students are taught by outstanding teachers and supported by a talented welfare and support team who are experienced at nurturing and guiding international pupils so that every student fulfils their potential within the British or American educational system.


Academic: CATS College retains its place as one of the ten most highly recommended Independent Sixth Form Colleges in the Education Advisers' league tables. UK Education Advisers, a specialist private education consultancy, provides advice to parents from around the globe. It gathers A level statistics directly from UK schools. They present the top institutions with Crystal Awards, based on their exam results. CATS received an award in recognition of its students' outstanding 2017 A-level results, which included over 60% A* - A grades. 

Boarding: Unlike traditional boarding schools in the UK, everyone in a CATS class is in the same situation - away from home, needing help to acclimatise, wanting to make new friends and committed to improving their English rapidly. Everything we do is aimed at helping you achieve this, from teachers who know how to adapt lessons to build conidence in English to houseparents who provide care and concern during your stay. Our campuses offer single and shared bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms in purpose built accommodation, because we know if you are comfortable and relaxed in your surroundings you will lourish academically, socially and emotionally. Throughout your time with us, you will be treated as a young adult. Our houseparents are available 24 hours per day to provide the support and nurturing you need to thrive.
