What the school says...

Set in over 230 acres of beautiful Cotswold countryside, midway between Cirencester and Cheltenham, Rendcomb College Junior School has a flourishing nursery class for 3 to 4 year olds and excellent staff to ensure each child develops and learns at their own pace within a warm caring environment. This experience provides a flexible and ideal springboard for the child's transition into the Junior School. Sharing the same site as Rendcomb College (ages 11 to 18), affords the Junior School a range of outstanding facilities including a drama theatre, sports hall, music block and an all weather artificial playing field. Spacious, bright and well resourced classrooms create a stimulating environment for learning.

A broad range of opportunities exist for children, inside and outside the classroom, and the opening of a huge Art & Design suite along with investment in ICT, reflects the schools commitment to a diverse curriculum. Rendcomb College Junior School hosts the largest Forest School in the county and a unique outdoor woodland classroom where children learn about their environment and how to care for it.
