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 are seeking Old Caterhamians in the early stages of their career to form an active Shadow Board.

This opportunity offers successful applications 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 will benefit from top level networking and enjoy the reward of influencing decision-making at the highest level.

We are looking for 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

Dear Old Caterhamians

I am delighted to be launching the Shadow Board for Caterham School and invite all Old Caterhamians under the age of 30 to consider making an application.

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.

The Shadow Board exists to challenge, improve and advise on the decision-making of the Board of Trustees on a range of topics including strategy and activity, bringing to bear fresh, diverse perspectives on what is in the best interests of the School.
