We develop and inspire sports people, providing a positive and nurturing environment for them to achieve and excel at whatever they desire.

With a full calendar of fixtures each year and teams of all abilities, there are opportunities for everyone at Cheltenham College to participate and succeed in sport. In fact, 82% of our pupils play in competitive sport fixtures representing the school throughout the academic year. Those pupils that wish to reach the highest levels in their chosen sport are supported through the Talented Athlete Programme.

Everyone benefits from our extensive sports facilities and the coaching and support of the Sports Professionals. They include former and current international players and coaches as well as Olympians. The Sports Professionals work with pupils throughout both The Prep and College, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to benefit from their experience and expertise.

We develop passionate and resilient learners who understand the importance of health and well-being, providing our pupils with the power to perform, through academics, sport and physical activity.
