​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A Positive education school

St Catherine's is a foundation member of the Positive Education in Schools Association (PESA). ​​

Positive psychology is founded on the belief that people want to​

  • lead meaningful and fulfilling lives
  • cultivate what is best within themselves
  • enhance their experiences of love, work and play


We help your daughter to flourish by

  • Showing her the benefits of being optimism
  • showing her how to build authentic relationships with friends, peers and teachers
  • helping her to understand the intrinsic relationship between finding meaning, positive relationships, engagement in work and service to have a life of purpose. 
  • building her resilience to deal with, and bounce back from life's difficulties.


Teachers too

Just like your daughter, her teachers will be well supported, highly trained and always refining their skills in the classroom. They are all trained in positive psychology and wellbeing throughout the year including dedicated professional development sessions on mental health and positive psychology
