Senior School

Overview

The Senior Phase of St Catherine’s School takes pupils on a journey towards being independent-thinking, young adults.

Our focus is on preparing our pupils for post-Matric studies at tertiary level. We provide the tools which enable graduates to excel in their chosen fields. This is accomplished by exposing pupils to excellent role models who teach them to think independently, critically analyze information, solve problems and be bold in sharing their opinions.

Academic knowledge and skill are part of what sets us apart. Our focus is on Christian values and dedicated work ethic, which allow our alumni to excel as professionals and leaders in society.

“Our values determine how we instinctively behave. Having a deep-seated sense of right and wrong, and then doing the right thing regardless of who is watching, is what makes us people with integrity.”
