This year we say goodbye to 50 Upper Sixth Boarders, who recently celebrated their wonderful time living at Caterham School by sharing a meal in the Wilberforce Hall with the boarding staff who have so diligently looked after them day-to-day. Mrs Quinton and Mr Mills (Heads of Boarding) gave a moving tribute to each of the boarders after dinner which brought both smiles, laughs and the odd tear of emotion. Pupil Heads of Boarding, Krystal and Jerry, gave a fitting vote of thanks on behalf of the Upper Sixth boarders. These pupils leave after at least two or more years of boarding; in that time they have developed a number of skills as boarders including: self-confidence, welcoming new people, tolerance, negotiating, independence and teamwork. Armed with these ‘soft-skills’ they will be very well placed to shine in life as they move on from living with their Caterham family. They will, however, always be part of the family and we look forward to welcoming them back for future visits and events.
Many thanks to the PA for their help in making the Wilberforce Hall beautiful for this event.Back to all news
