College Rules

You will find CATS London a stimulating and challenging environment. It is a college, not a school. The structures are designed to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Because of this, you are required to accept considerable responsibility and exhibit a mature attitude to all things.

During Induction we will explain all the rules to you in detail, but here are some important ones to remember:


  • You must go to all classes, lectures, tutorials and meetings.The only good reason for not being at College is if you are ill, or have an official appointment.
  • You must take any tests and examinations required.
  • If your authorised attendance is below 95%, or your in class attendance is below 85%, the College may not allow you to sit your examinations.
  • You must do all work set by your teachers. Work should be done on time, and you should try to do all work as best as you can. If you cannot do work on time, you must talk to the relevant subject teacher. They will want to know why the work has not been done. It may be possible to agree a new date for the work to be completed by. 


In compliance with government regulations, CATS London is a smoke free campus. Smoking is only allowed in designated smoking areas. It is illegal for any persons under the age of 18 to purchase cigarettes in the UK. Smoking is illegal in the UK if you are under 16.

Drugs and substance misuse

  • UK law forbids the use and/or supply of illegal substances. We have a duty to inform and educate all students concerning the consequences of the use of illegal substances and alcohol abuse.
  • We will provide help to identify sources of appropriate personal support and increase understanding of related health and social issues.
  • We will ensure that parents/guardians are informed and involved as appropriate.
  • Drugs are not allowed under any circumstances. The Principal may, at his discretion, exercise a zero tolerance policy and expel anyone caught in possession of, or having taken drugs, or may suspend the students, allowing them to return only under strict conditions.

These may include:

  • A minimum of 95% attendance and frequent drug testing. Each test costs around £150, and will be covered by whoever pays your fees.
  • Attending drug counselling as deemed appropriate by the College, and meeting any costs incurred.
