St Catherine’s is delighted to share the news that the Boarding Schools Association has announced that it is a Winner in its annual ‘Supporting Excellence’ Awards in recognition of The 6 – our new home for Sixth Form day and boarding students which opened in Spring 2021. It was designed by IID Architects, with alumna Helen Whateley (Year of 2008) leading the process. The judges said: “The new facilities are very impressive, matched only by the exceptional quality of the presentation. Of particular note was the naming of the spaces after inspirational women. It is hoped that the new facilities in ‘The 6’ will be an inspiration for the young women at St. Catherine’s, Bramley!” Life in The 6 is, of course, about academic progress and personal development and one of the major benefits of boarding is the development of firm and lifelong friendships, as well as enjoying being part of a strong, supportive, happy and global community.
