Shadow Board

Shadow Board

Be part of our future, whilst building your own.

Caterham is a ground-breaking school, driving the agenda on digital, innovation and wellbeing in education whilst upholding the highest academic standards. As part of our drive to prepare young people for a rapidly changing world of work and to ensure voice for young people across our diverse community we have established an active Shadow Board of Old Caterhamians in the early stages of their career.

This opportunity offers our Shadow Board members experience of board level operation, continuous professional development opportunities across corporate governance, organisational decision-making and leadership experience. Having direct interaction with the School’s Board of Trustees, Shadow Board members benefit from top level networking and enjoy the reward of influencing decision-making at the highest level.

Our Shadow Board is comprised of creative thinkers prepared to think afresh about how best the needs of the School and its pupils will be served as it moves forward.

From the Chair of Trustees

I am delighted to see the Shadow Board established for Caterham School.

This is hugely exciting initiative. The school is stronger than ever, in greater demand than ever and is at the cutting edge of educational discussion in the UK. There are huge opportunities and possibilities for the school in the years ahead and we recognise that utilising the skills and experiences of a younger generation of people will help the school and the Trustees make more informed decisions, and ensure that the educational experiences of pupils at Caterham continues to be outstanding. 

Not only will you have a chance to be part of the next phase of the development of the school, you will also receive continuous professional development opportunities on corporate governance, organisational decision-making and leadership experience. This is a fantastic opportunity for  our young alumni, our current pupils, and the School.
