CATS Canterbury selected as a finalist in the Working with Vulnerable Children Award by Boarding School’s Association

12 May 2022

CATS Canterbury has been selected as a finalist in the Working with Vulnerable Children Award category by Boarding School’s Association. Our nomination for this award is a fantastic reflection of the support we provide to every student. 


We spoke to our Principal at CATS Canterbury, Severine Collins, for her thoughts on the nomination,  

“I am delighted to announce that, following a submission to the Boarding School’s Association by Emily Coleman, Deputy Head of Boarding, CATS Canterbury college has been chosen as one of the finalists in the Working with Vulnerable Children Award category.  

 As part of the College’s Key priority of Caring Culture, we ensure that every child’s best interests are at the heart of what we do, and truly believe that the outcomes for each child should be unique and centred around their aptitudes, whether in class, at college or in Boarding. As a college, we work together between boarding, academic, pastoral, and medical teams to ensure our students get the best possible care and support whilst with us, and the BSA has shortlisted the College based on some particular support that has ben provided to one of our students.”  


One of our A-level students had this to say about the support provided at CATS Canterbury,  

“Here at CATS Canterbury, getting help is a piece of cake. Just say “help me” and they will provide you with overwhelming support and attention. No one should suffer from inner problems alone and teachers at CATS do their best to ensure just that. They are not only always on standby, ready to help any student who reached out to them, but they also make observations to determine if there is anything wrong with the students and they are not reluctant to take action.” 


Congratulations to all the staff at CATS Canterbury for their recognised dedicated support, who go above and beyond for our students wellbeing at the college.
