Our Mission
We encourage and enable all of our students to realise their potential, fostering independence and maturity in order to prepare them for their future as Global Citizens.

Welcome from the Principal

“Study with CATS College in the heart of London, close to several of the best universities in the world, including four of the Times Higher Education top Global 40 universities: King’s College London, Imperial College London, University College London and London School of Economics. London is a centre for academic excellence, and boasts over 70 Nobel Prize laureates who have studied or worked at a London university. 

As well as enjoying the rich academic experience CATS has to offer, you will also experience a vast range of unique cultural and social opportunities on offer in London.

We are accredited by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, an organisation which assesses independent schools in the UK. We were one of the first schools to be inspected under the new inspection regime in 2016. In our latest inspection (April 2019), the campus was judged to be 100% compliant across all areas of the Focused Compliance Inspection. In addition, it was judged “Good” in both areas of the Educational Quality Inspection; the quality of Pupils’ Academic and Other Achievements and the quality of Pupils’ Personal Development. View our latest inspection report.

With a diverse international community, you will make lifelong friends from around the world: we work hard to foster an environment in which students from all cultures and countries respect and learn from one other. In this friendly and inspirational environment, you will develop the confidence, independence and maturity needed to achieve a place at your chosen university.

We look forward to welcoming you to CATS London.”
