Life at Cheltenham College is challenging, fun, exciting, hard work, fast paced and incredibly satisfying. It's also exceptionally busy. One thing College life isn't, is dull. In fact, the array of extra and co-curricular programmes is quite simply breath-taking. From 13 through to 18, pupils are immersed into a community that is not only full of opportunities but warm, friendly and utterly inclusive. 

We believe every pupil has the capacity to be imaginative and creative and considerable emphasis is given to encouraging musicians, actors and actresses and artists. We are also extremely lucky to have internationally renowned Cheltenham Literature, Science, Music and Jazz Festivals on our doorstep. Both team games and individual sports flourish, nurturing individual ability and team work. 

We have a strong Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and Combined Cadet Force as well as a vast range of outward bound activities, enabling pupils to develop their leadership skills with real confidence.

There is something for everyone at Cheltenham College. It's not just a school, it's an experience like no other. It's a life full of opportunities.
