What the school says...
Cheltenham College occupies stunning grounds in the lively and culturally rich town of Cheltenham. We offer outstanding education within a warm and vibrant boarding community.

To this day, we retain a great sense of history and tradition, with magnificent buildings and architecture providing a backdrop to a first class modern education.
