A limo/party bus is also ordered to transport the year 11 leavers in style.

The summer ball is open to all students at Catcote but the transport is provided as an extra special thing for the leavers.


Funds are raised throughout the year during events with a variety of raffles, tombola’s, and ticket sales and donations.
