Following the merger with Eothen School in September 1995, Caterham School became associated with the United Church Schools Trust (UCST)* but remains a separate charity with its own Trustee body.
Caterham School is independently managed with its own Trustees, who are responsible for oversight of the day-to-day running of the School and appointing the Head, Bursar and Chaplain (URC).
Whilst it remains very much an independent and “local” school, Caterham benefits from its partnership with the schools in United Learning – making Caterham all the stronger in the face of continued threats and challenges to independent education.
