Our School motto 'Let us go on...' suggests a collegiate approach. There is no sense any individual is on her own. As a School community we are in it together. Our community of over 8500 members, past and present, is known as the St Catherine's Association, bridging the years and bringing current pupils together with those who have gone before.
Established in 2004, the Association connects current and former pupils, parents, staff and governors, members of the local community, and other friends and supporters of the School.
Free for life
Whatever your connection, you are automatically enrolled into the Association, which provides free, life-long membership.
