About Us

Cheltenham College is a co-educational Day and Boarding school at the heart of the Cotswolds.

Formed in 1841, Cheltenham College today consists of the Cheltenham Prep (for ages 3-13) and Cheltenham College (for ages 13-18). Both schools share a large campus in Cheltenham and benefit from outstanding facilities for academics, sports, the Arts and Boarding life.

Pupils at Cheltenham Prep receive an extraordinary education, with the opportunity to try everything (The Prep has an award-winning range of clubs and activities on offer) and to discover something that they love. Tom O’Sullivan is the Head at Cheltenham Prep and, along with his Great Dane Scooby, is ready to welcome you to learn more about the Prep School here.

Cheltenham College provides our older pupils with the opportunity to discover and fulfil their potential. Pupils are supported to explore their passions and interests and develop them to the highest levels, leaving College for a range of destinations, ready to make a difference in the global world of tomorrow. Nicola Huggett is the Head of College and is passionate about developing our pupils’ potential through the 5Cs – discover more about this here.

Despite its traditional exterior, the school prides itself on being innovative and forward-thinking.
