Caterham School Elite Private School is a 45-minute drive from central London. Historically designed to teach boys, Caterham School has been an example of an elite boarding school for coeducation since 1995.

Caterham School is a place in which study turns into a fascinating adventure that opens up unlimited opportunities for personal growth. The school was founded in 1811. Surrounded by beech forests, the school's campus covers an area of ​​80 acres and is located in a magnificent valley. It is quiet and unusually beautiful, and it is hard to believe that the bustling London is only 20 miles away.

The unique spirit of Caterham School consists of three components: the impeccable quality of teaching, paternal care for children and orientation toward the development of each child’s personal abilities and talents. The whole school teaching system is aimed at raising in children dignity, responsibility and determination. This enables everyone to maximize their inner potential.
