The primary purpose of the Caterham School Parents’ Association (CSPA) is to raise funds to support the Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior schools.
All parents of Caterham School children are automatically members of the School Association.
Apart from holding events which enable parents to socialise with each other, the Association, through its fundraising activities, generates an income in excess of £20,000 per year, all of which is available for providing extra equipment or activities for the pupils, over and above that which the school would be expected to provide from fees.
In the last few years, the CSPA has paid for many different items requested by parents and staff, ranging from a climbing rock in the Prep school, to a high speed camera for use in Science lessons in the Senior School. Major projects include a new Cricket Pavillion for the Prep School and the amazing KitCat project at the Senior school.

Breck Bednar was a pupil at Caterham School from September 2010 – July 2012 before moving on to St Bedes.
The Breck Foundation is raising awareness for playing safe whilst using the internet. Breck Bednar was a 14 year old boy, from Caterham, Surrey, who loved technology and on-line gaming. He was groomed via the internet and sadly murdered on February 17th 2014 by someone he met on-line. This foundation has been set up in his memory to help other young people to enjoy playing online but be aware that the friends you make on-line are not like your real friends. “Play Virtual/Live Real”.
The money that we fundraise is to be used to educate children of all ages about internet safety and raise awareness of the dangers. Please do visit the Breck Foundation website for further information for adults and children or our facebook page (The Breck Foundation)
Opening files, accepting emails, IM messages, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages.
Tell your parent, or trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied.
Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real friends and family.
Meeting someone you have only been in contact with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents or carers permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
Keep safe by being careful not to give your personal information when you are chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number, password, location
What better way to learn about the finer points of Physics, Economics, English, Maths and 3D design than by building your own car?
That’s exactly what the pupils at Caterham School in Surrey will be doing over the next twelve months after taking delivery of a famous Caterham Seven sportscar in component form.
The British manufacturer’s local school is the latest to integrate the famous two-seater into the curriculum as part of a unique interactive education programme.
The car will be assembled by a team of pupils who have formed the Kit Car Club and teachers will have the opportunity to use the car and its components as teaching aids in other subjects across a wide range of ages.
James Ogilvie who, along with fellow teacher Ben Wilkinson, runs the Kit Car Club at Caterham School explains: “There’s a great deal the school can gain from having the Seven. For example, in physics, pupils can look at how the suspension system works, English lessons could include copywriting a brochure and other marketing material, and in economics the business of selling and exporting cars can be investigated.”
At the end of the year, the car will be sold by Caterham Cars creating sufficient funds to allow the school to repeat the project the following term at no further cost.
The scheme has already been running successfully at a school in Dorset for the past three years.
Andy Noble, Marketing Director at Caterham Cars says: “It’s great to see the pupils get passionate about a subject, it really brings learning to life. And if we can help inspire some of the guys and girls to reach their potential, then that’s an added bonus.”
