St Catherine’s is a lively and academic Church of England School which offers all its pupils access to a first rate education in the broadest sense. There are 900 pupils, aged 4 - 18, including some 265 in the Preparatory School. Founded in 1885 as a girls’ school for day and boarding pupils, its traditions are well established. The first hundred years of its history reflect the School’s steady evolution into a forward-looking educational establishment which still retains the best values of the past. In September 2010 the School celebrated its 125th Anniversary: proud of its past and optimistic for its future.Set in beautiful Surrey countryside, the 25 acre campus boasts up-to-date facilities, all on site, as well as attractive boarding accommodation for Senior School pupils.

Our pupils enjoy outstanding success in every field - academic, sporting, cultural - and we are proud of all that we help them to achieve. By creating an environment in which their confidence can grow, we ensure that our pupils thrive.

How do we create such an exceptional environment? By treating each girl as an individual, by constant encouragement and by striving to ensure that every pupil is happy at school. Excellent teaching, first rate facilities and a caring pastoral team combine to make St Catherine’s a highly successful school for both boarders and day girls.

Above all, we aim to give our pupils both the opportunities and the confidence to develop fully their own individual talents and abilities.

Living and Working in Surrey

Surrey is a county of contrasts. Only a short journey from London, it also offers a quick escape into peaceful countryside. This pleasant environment is combined with transport links that include the M3, M23 and M25 motorways, road and rail to London, and easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

In spite of a population of just over a million in a comparatively small area of 650 square miles, 80% of the county is farmland, woods, heath and open land. Although Surrey is a wealthy county, there are areas of relative poverty, particularly around some of the larger towns and a number of schools have pupils with a wide diversity of nationalities, cultures and languages.

Booming economy
There have recently been several major town centre redevelopments in Surrey. In the field of education and research, centres include Royal Holloway University (London) at Egham and Surrey University at Guildford. New research related technologies are also represented at Surrey University's research park and many multinational companies continue to relocate from London to Surrey.

Environmental issues
In Surrey there is a need to balance environmental conservation with the requirement for more homes, roads and commercial development.

For teachers in schools interested in green issues, Surrey County Council promotes environmental awareness with a wide range of initiatives to develop pupils' knowledge and experience.

Tourism and leisure
Surrey provides a wealth of contrasting leisure activities. Among the historic sites are Hampton Court Palace and Runnymede, as well as National Trust properties such as Clandon and Polesden Lacey. Other attractions include picturesque villages, gardens, such as Wisley, racecourses and river trips. Surrey also has seven major arts venues.

Sports centres are also plentiful, among them the Spectrum Centre in Guildford, probably the most exciting leisure complex in the UK. Other first-class facilities are available in Camberley, Egham, Lingfield and Oxted.

For cyclists and walkers there is an extensive network of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes and Surrey also boasts high-quality shopping malls, particularly in Kingston, Guildford and Camberley.

The Visit Surrey tourism website gives comprehensive information about all these leisure activities.


Surrey has good road and rail links to London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
