Independent private school St Catherine's School Bramley is a prestigious women's board offering balanced and effective educational programs for all stages of the high school from 4 to 18 years. Students can choose a full-time form of studying or permanently live on the campus on a full board basis: today the number of students reaches 900 people. The school campus is conveniently located in one of the quiet London suburbs, in the small village of Brumley in Surrey.

The school was founded by local residents as far back as 1885 and immediately took a separate form of studying - intended only for the daughters of local gentlemen. Today, the enrollment does not take into account the social origin, nationality or colour of the girls' skin - but the basic principles remain the same: the full education of every girl as a versatile, independent, educated person, a real lady in the traditional English sense. While St Catherine's School Bramley does not position itself as an institution of exceptional academic success, graduates regularly demonstrate an outstanding level of knowledge and academic achievement - this is the best proof of the success and effectiveness of programs and the professionalism of teachers. Especially it is worth noting the success of girls in the creative field: dramatic and theatrical skill, fine arts and music.

The official religion of St Catherine's School Bramley is Anglicanism, but representatives of all religions and denominations can study here.
