Headmaster, Ceri Jones, said: “Today is a true celebration for all of us at Caterham. This is a fantastic year group who have shown ability across so many areas of school life, Their record breaking performance this summer after two years of uncertainty demonstrates what talented and tenacious young people they are. Behind them and their success is, of course, their teachers and families whose support across two years of switching between physical and virtual school provided the constant they deserve and needed.”

“I am thrilled for them as individuals and also for what this stellar set of grades enables as they move on to the Sixth Form. I am also delighted for the whole school community and our ever-growing academic prowess. Our focus is to ensure that pupils enjoy school, that they feel they belong and have fun, that they work hard and play hard. I am delighted that this approach continues to see our young people achieve their full potential and thrive at school.”

Today’s results follow hot on the heels of Caterham’s A Level results which saw 85 per cent of Caterhamians secure their first-choice university place and 95 per cent a university destination of their choice across Oxbridge, Russell Group and overseas universities.
