CATS Global Schools rebrands three UK schools
CATS Global Schools is proud to announce that our three CATS UK schools have rebranded.
CATS Global Schools launched in 2021 to build a strong global network of independent boarding schools, an Arts School, English language schools and a variety of summer programmes, all with the common purpose of “inspiring the next generation of world shapers”.
Since 1952, CATS Cambridge, CATS Canterbury and CATS London have delivered high-quality teaching to students from around the world.
Over the last 70 years, our CATS UK schools have developed three distinct educational experiences to fit the many different needs of its students. As they celebrated their past and looked to the future, the exciting decision was made to rebrand the three schools. This rebrand has been undertaken to better showcase the unique student experience and the individual school communities the students and staff are so proud to be a part of.
From 12 October 2022, CATS Canterbury becomes The Worthgate School, CATS London becomes Guildhouse School, London and CATS Cambridge will continue to carry the heritage of the CATS name. However, its logo and brand colours have changed.
“This rebrand marks a significant milestone and is an evolution of the strategic positioning of the group globally, with a portfolio of schools that provides clear USPs for our prospective parents and students. Our main priorities continue to be a global community of schools offering excellent student experiences and outcomes above all else.”
