Glenlee moved to its current home in 1901 after originally occupying the building which is now The Montpellier Chapter Hotel. Much excitement was caused during the building of the present Glenlee as the skeleton of an Ichthyosaurus dinosaur was discovered when laying the building’s foundations, it was proudly carried off to the College museum. Miss Beale described the new boarding house as "home-like, not barrack-like", today's Glenlee is just as homely.
The ethos of Glenlee
Glenlee is a happy and active boarding house where the girls feel at home. Each member of the house is valued as an individual and encouraged to treat everyone else with respect and kindness.
My name is Charlotte Coull and I have been Housemistress of Glenlee since 2008. I moved here from Devon with my husband James and our two daughters, Freya and Ruby.
Although most of my time is spent looking after the house, I also enjoy teaching French in College. Before coming to Cheltenham, I had taught in various different day schools both in this country and overseas. I am delighted to be back in a boarding school (I was a boarder at school myself), as there is always so much going on. The house staff and I are constantly impressed by the girls’ motivation, enthusiasm and their sense of fun.
