We’re rebranding 

Since our foundation in 1952, we have grown into one of the most innovative and successful independent education providers in the UK. 

Our philosophy is simple: we combine exceptionally high-quality teaching with a deep understanding of our students and their personal needs. With this in mind, we have made the exciting decision to rebrand CATS Cambridge, CATS Canterbury and CATS London.  

Over the last 70 years, our three CATS schools in the UK (CATS Cambridge, CATS Canterbury and CATS London) have developed three distinct educational experiences to fit the many different needs of our students. We are therefore rebranding our three CATS UK schools, to better showcase the unique student experience and the separate school communities our students and staff are so proud to be a part of. 

CATS Canterbury will be renamed to The Worthgate School; CATS London will be renamed to Guildhouse School, London and CATS Cambridge will keep the same name but it’s logo and brand colours will change. 

These changes will not come into effect until 12th October; however, you may start to see elements of the new brands over the next coming months during the transition.  

We are also holding a webinar for our partners, new and returning students and their parents on 3rd August to answer any questions you may have about the rebrand. To register to attend, please click here. 

Thank you to all our partners, students and parents who have supported our CATS UK schools over the last 70 years, we are grateful for your continued support as we start this exciting new chapter.  

See our new brands below:

The Worthgate School

“Inspire, Empower, achieve”

Currently known as CATS Canterbury, The Worthgate School has been inspiring and empowering students to achieve for over 70 years. The Worthgate School campus is nestled in a leafy corner of historic Canterbury, a city that is renowned for its safety and beauty, and for being home to three universities that have educated generations of young minds.

The Guildhouse School

“Where change makers are made”

Currently known as CATS London, The Guildhouse school has spent the last 10 years perfecting their approach. Through our core values we build our students’ confidence and decision-making capabilities by nurturing their intuition and creativity so they can problem solve, make an impact, and become effective change makers.

CATS Cambridge
 

“Education, excellence and innovation in the heart of Cambridge”

Unlike the other CATS UK schools, CATS Cambridge is keeping its current name. However, its school logo and visual identity will change. CATS Cambridge is for the best who want to be their very best. It is our mission to unlock potential, to set our students on a path to realise their aspirations, and to prepare them for that journey so they can navigate all the opportunities and challenges that life casts their way.
