Best for International Students

Unlike traditional boarding schools in the UK, everyone in a CATS class is in the same situation - away from home, needing help to acclimatise, wanting to make new friends and committed to improving their English rapidly. Everything they do is aimed at helping you achieve this, from teachers who know how to adapt lessons to build confidence in English to house parents who provide care and concern during your stay.

Best for boarding

The campuses offer single and double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms in purpose built accommodation, because we know if you are comfortable and relaxed in your surroundings you will flourish academically, socially and emotionally. Throughout your boarding you will be treated as a young adult.  The houseparents are available 24 hours per day to provide the support and nurturing you need to thrive.

Best for University Preparation

Whatever your aspirations are, CATS London offer a wide range of programmes and subjects that will help you progress. You will receive one-on-one guidance on applying to university. You will visit a range of campuses, attend workshops to help you perfect your personal statement and receive individual support such as interview practice.

In addition, you will have access to a range of activities through our Key Professions Programme to help you get a head start in a competitive career.
