Cheltenham College

Winner of the Independent School Boarding School of the Year 2022-23 Based at the heart of a Cotswolds spa town, Cheltenham College is a day and boarding school for girls and boys aged from 3-18. Our pupils receive a modern first-class all-round education that supports them to discover and fulfil their talents and abilities. Life at Cheltenham College offers the opportunity to spark and develop interests in a variety of areas in the classroom, on the sports pitches, the stage and beyond

“A school that understands the unique challenges that military families face when choosing how and where to educate their children.”

Each of our 11 Boarding Houses is led by a Housemaster or Housemistress who is resident in the House, supported by a pastoral team – ensuring that the pupils enjoy a kind, caring, safe and fun environment. Each House has an equal amount of year groups within it, with pupils of all ages socialising, mentoring, and supporting each other and creating a genuine family community.


Cheltenham College has 750 pupils and 80% of them are full time boarders who take part in a full activities programme during the week and weekends including sports, societies and clubs alongside their academic studies. All sports, societies and clubs are available to all regardless of experience or skill level. 


Cheltenham College has a long and distinguished connection with the military dating back to 1862. It is a connection and understanding that remains just as strong today. We understand the unique challenges that military families face when choosing how and where to educate their children.
