Why Cheltenham College?

Why Cheltenham College?

A young person educated at Cheltenham College is a well-rounded, ambitious individual who is equipped to define themselves and their future lives. 

The foundation of the first class, modern education our pupils receive is our experience and history as a co-educational independent boarding school.

We build on this foundation with five characteristics that set every pupil’s time at Cheltenham College apart. 


Academic excellence 

We combine a diverse curriculum with personalised support, so every pupil is able to achieve the best results they can and follow the Higher Education and career path of their choice. 


An all-round emphasis 

We offer a huge breadth of opportunities outside the classroom, so every pupil is able to explore their interests and passions, support charitable causes and become a proactive member of the community. 


The support to succeed 

We provide expert coaching and first class facilities so every pupil can participate in any activity or sport they enjoy and pupils who want to play or achieve to the highest levels have the support they need. 


Outstanding pastoral care 

All staff are highly skilled and trained in pastoral care, so every pupil can be an active member of their House and the wider College community and develop positive habits that enable them to take care of their own wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around them. 


Community value 

We benefit from our location at the heart of a Cotswolds town under two hours from London where every pupil can be a part of, and contribute to, a local community and everything it has to offer.
