Roderic is our newest and smallest Sixth Form Boarding House, with approximately 20 students. The house backs onto 'Field' - the College sports facilities, housing our state of the art Health and Fitness Centre.

Although only opened in 2014, the House has a much longer history and takes its name from a previous boarding house, based in the Suffolks area of Cheltenham, which was open from 1883 to 1984.

From the Houseparent

"I joined Cheltenham Ladies' College in 2012. I became the Housemistress of Roderic in 2014 and I also teach Biology at College.

"Before moving to Cheltenham I was an assistant head of house and taught Biology in a boarding school in Norfolk.

"My home is in South Wales and during the holidays I spend my time there with my fiancé Marc, who runs his own installations business."
