Our Town

The College teaching campus and boarding and day houses are located in the heart of Cheltenham, one of England's most beautiful Regency towns, situated in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The town has much to offer, from its graceful architecture and history, beautiful public gardens and diverse shops, as well as the cultural variety offered by the fantastic annual Cheltenham Festivals programme. We are delighted that our strategic sponsorship of the four Festivals (Jazz, Science, Music and Literature) provides us with the opportunity to enrich the girls' curriculum.

Cheltenham is also home to the world-famous racecourse, the spiritual centre of jump racing.

If you're visiting us or your daughter, commuter links into Cheltenham are good. There are easy road and rail links, with Bristol, Birmingham and Oxford all accessible within an hour's travel. Regular trains and buses also run to London which is approximately 100 miles away.

Accommodation for all budgets is plentiful and there are numerous pubs and restaurants in the town, as well as in the many surrounding villages.
