Equality & Inclusion – EDI

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Cheltenham College is continually developing and evolving. Alongside our EDI policies and CPD training for staff, our pupils have formed and are leading proactive committees such as the Anti-Racism Team and the LGBTQ+ Committee to support EDI initiatives.

Each pupil group leads discussions and assemblies, holds events and takes part in training and education on EDI areas; and our trained academic and pastoral staff provide support to pupils.

One of our Pupil-led Committees – the Anti-Racism Team

The Anti Racism (A-R) Team was set up at the start of 2023 and its mission is to make Cheltenham College entirely accepting of the wide diversity of race and ethnicity within the community.


Activities to date

  • Ethnicities Week – open safe spaces to discuss discrimination experience at College.
  • Whole school Chapel talk by team members on stereotyping and micro-aggression.
  • East and Southeast Asian (ESEA) anti-racism training with external trainer Isabelle Pan.
  • Bystander Training led by staff.

  • Five ‘Bystander Training’ assemblies, presented by pupils to whole year groups on how to ‘call it out’ and stand up to micro-aggression and racism.
