Welcome from the College Head

Cheltenham College has been educating young people since 1841. Bestowed with stunning buildings and set in the heart of one of England’s most vibrant spa towns, we provide boys and girls with a modern first class all-round education that prepares them for their next step onwards into life. 

Learning is at the heart of what we do; we want our pupils to be inspired to achieve high academic standards, leaving College with exam results they can be proud of. They will develop resilience and a spirit of adventure along the way.  

The pastoral care at College is something that everyone here takes pride in. This is the foundation which enables our pupils to gain confidence in themselves. Similarly, the opportunities provided outside of the classroom are second to none. This is a busy school offering outstanding provision within sport, creative arts and outdoor education. Our pupils are able to develop a range of interests that will last them a lifetime.

Our community service programme is a particularly important part of College life. This is an area in which our pupils gain an understanding of the importance of giving their time to benefit others, and in doing so, an appreciation of the value of service is gained.

Our aim above all is to inspire young people who are willing to learn, ambitious to achieve and keen to get involved. Boys and girls who join College at any age, will leave us as well-rounded young men and women, having fulfilled their true potential and gained a place at a top university of their choice. They will have been prepared for life beyond school and be able to contribute positively to society.

I feel it is a great privilege to live and work within this wonderful community. We warmly welcome you to come and visit us and see why we believe this is a school where your child will truly flourish.
