Caterham School day and boarding school 11 – 18
Caterham School is an independent co-educational HMC day and boarding school for pupils aged 3 – 18 years. We aim to provide an excellent all-round education so that every pupil can achieve their full potential academically and socially. We have a proud academic track record which places us each year among the top schools in the country. Our A Level results are excellent with over 92% A*-B grades for the last three years. Each year our students go on to some of the UK’s top universities.
- One of the top ten independent co-educational schools in England
- The top co-educational school in Surrey
Once again A-level results this year place Caterham School among the very top schools in the country.
Students at Caterham School can celebrate two new records with this year’s A-level results as they achieved 93% of passes at A*-B. The results this year are:
- A* 29%
- A* – A 70%
- A* – B 93%^ (highest ever)
- A* – C 99.8%^ (highest ever)
Headmaster Julian Thomas said: ‘I am delighted with the achievements of these 126 remarkable young men and women. Last year’s results were outstanding so it is a delight to be able to report two new records this year. It has been another busy year, even more so than usual with our bicentenary celebrations and the associated activities and events. I believe that these excellent results have been achieved not in spite of the breadth and depth of co-curricular involvement of our students, but because of it. They show, in the clearest possible way, that these activities do not need to be at the expense of academic achievement. These grades are a testament to the enthusiasm of our students and their commitment to a broad and varied education. I am particularly delighted to see that the 13 students accepted for Oxbridge, another record, have all achieved their necessary grades.
The Maggs Library is housed in the School’s original Memorial Hall, which was opened in 1925 to commemorate the Old Caterhamians who died during the 1914 – 1918 war. The generosity of former pupil Albert P. Maggs made possible the conversion of the building into a Library, which was opened in 1990.
The Library aims to work with the whole School community by supporting all pupils in their learning, and all members of staff in their teaching. We aim to facilitate research (for individuals as well as whole classes), private study and recreational reading.
All First Year, Third Year and Lower Sixth Form pupils attend Library induction sessions at the start of the academic year.
The Library houses a collection of some 20,000 books and other media. Additionally, there is a wide range of magazines, journals and newspapers.
