Home from home

Boarding at St Catherine’s creates a home from home space for our girls where each has the opportunity to be with people who make her feel safe and secure, with whom she shares experiences and has fun. Living within a boarding house gives her the opportunity to talk things through, validate and make sense of her thoughts, emotions and experiences.  It can help her to problem-solve difficult situations, as well as widen her thinking and enabling her to see other’s perspectives.  Your daughter’s Housemistress will support her as needed and in consultation with you.   

Through boarding, girls learn to build good relationships with a diverse selection of people who have many different interests. St Catherine’s creates a supportive community around your child, where she can grow and develop in intelligence and confidence. 

Boarding at St Cat’s has taught me to be confident in myself, self-disciplined and independent.  Louise
