Welcome from the Headteacher

Caterham High School is a fantastic and fulfilling place to work. Staff here work tirelessly to ensure that the students in our care are happy, rounded individuals who achieve the best outcomes they can. We are a truly inclusive community school that believes in high aspirations for all. We seek to nurture children’s talents and abilities, and to help our young people become confident, mature and responsible members of society who are able to fulfil their ambitions.

Caterham High is in an exciting period of development as we look to challenge ourselves to excel in all areas of the curriculum and provision. We are ambitious to become an Outstanding school, building on our own best practice and also looking outward for innovation and advancement. We encourage our staff to develop their skills and proficiencies and so we have in place a strong CPD and professional development programme.

We have high expectations of our students in terms of behaviour, learning and achievement from our youngest students through to our mature sixth formers. Our thriving Sixth Form caters for the diverse community that we serve providing a range of subjects and qualifications to suit all abilities including engaging vocational and demanding academic qualifications.

If you relish the opportunity to join us in our expectations of excellence, if you welcome opportunities for innovation and challenge, if you are excited to make a difference to children’s lives, then we welcome your interest and look forward to your application.
