Founded in 1885 as both a day and boarding school for girls aged 4-18, St Catherine’s lays the very best foundations for your daughter’s future. St Catherine’s, offers your daughter an exceptional education. Situated just 3 miles south of Guildford in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, ‘St Cat’s’ girls thrive in an environment in which they can grow and develop at their own pace, enjoying the very best all-round educational experience which nurtures and encourages their interests, talents and self-confidence, as they move into adulthood.   

Superb examination results are testament to the quality of teaching and learning where students are not afraid to show enthusiasm and ambition. Lessons are taught in well-appointed classrooms by subject specialists. Girls are prepared for and study at the best universities both in the UK and abroad. With extensive playing fields, state of the art sports facilities and an auditorium which boasts better acoustics than many London venues, it is no surprise that St Catherine’s is always buzzing with life after the teaching  day is over; there is so much on offer, girls find it hard to leave!    

Parents also tell us they appreciate the flexibility of a school which understands their working day does not finish at 4.00pm. St Catherine’s understands the importance of family and the pressures on parents and so works hard to support the school-work-home-life balance. The financial sums make lots of sense; weekly boarding offers a compelling argument when factoring in the cost of after-school care coupled with the sheer convenience for the whole family of having everything under one roof whether it is ballet, swimming, Mandarin classes or simply the fact that your daughter’s prep. is completed each evening in a calm, supervised environment.   

Day girls are always welcome to stay on to participate in their extra-curricular activities, be it  Sport, Music, Art or Drama, completing homework or even sharing supper with boarding friends. For working parents there is the peace of mind that if a meeting over-runs or the traffic is grid-locked, it is not a problem. A business trip or family commitment can be catered for because St Catherine’s offers flexi-boarding; providing beds are available, your daughter can stay with us.  

Of course full boarders enjoy a comprehensive and exciting weekend activity programme which weekly boarders are always welcome to take part in too.  In a nutshell, St Catherine’s offers something that little bit different- a premier league school where you will discover a successful mix of the modern with the traditional, academic excellence going hand in hand with kindness and consideration, all underpinned by a unique House spirit which girls recall with fondness long after they leave. 

The St Catherine’s Association helps girls stay in touch with each other; the fact they are always so keen to come back for events such as careers’ forums and reunions, sports matches and trips, choirs and exhibitions, speaks volumes about our school and most importantly our wonderful students.  St Catherine’s offers an unforgettable educational experience.
