Pride month at Cheltenham College ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Our LGBTQ+ flag bunting is brightening up the Quad this June! We’re looking forward to seeing the @cheltcollibrary celebrate when taking part in the Read With Pride event, recommending books with LGTBTQ+ stories and those that have been written by LGBTQ+ authors. At College, our Pride and Allies group have regular meetings that take place over the year, including discussions about LGBTQ+ in the news, books and more. We have a number of staff members who are LGBTQ+ Listener trained, who wear rainbow lanyards to signify that they are available to listen and support our pupils where needed.

Cheltonian Society Polo Day 🏇🏽 With the sun shining, we enjoyed a wonderful day at Cirencester Park Polo Club for the Cheltonian Society Polo Day 2024. We were delighted to have Beaudesert Park School join us for the first match against Cheltenham Prep. It was an exciting four chukka match that finished Beaudesert Park 7, Cheltenham Prep 4. The second four chukka match, Cheltenham College v Old Cheltonians, was a dynamic game ending in a draw, 2-2. The excitement continued with two prizes up for grabs for the finder of the golden cork and best picnic: two vouchers for a personalised shopping and stylist experience at the flagship Holland Cooper Boutique, with £250 to spend in store!
