The Curriculum

Girls are taught in small classes by teachers with a deep enthusiasm for their subjects. We are committed to providing high-quality teaching which develops intellectually curious, self-motivated, enthusiastic young women with an enduring love of learning.

Games & The Arts

We support each girl in striking a successful balance between academic and co-curricular activities. Our co-curricular provision is exciting and well-resourced, presenting every girl with an opportunity to find her niche from the 100+ activities on offer, from astronomy to lacrosse, gospel choir to engineering club.

Pastoral Care

Cheltenham Ladies’ College is a busy place and pastoral care forms an underlying foundation, which supports every girl throughout their time here. Our academic staff, tutors, house system, chaplain and medical centre create a pastoral network to support every girl, from the reserved to the extrovert.

University Places

Our dedicated Professional Guidance Centre supports girls applying for higher education both in the UK and abroad, including specialist provision for the US and Oxbridge applications. In 2018, girls took up places at Oxford and Cambridge, as well as leading US universities, including Stanford, Yale, Brown and Northeastern.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

A 21st-century education needs to inspire, prepare and equip children to sustain a lifetime of independently sought learning, and give them the flexibility and resourcefulness to flourish in our rapidly changing world. Academic excellence forms the basis of college life, but girls also embrace the co-curricular programme, develop a global outlook and enrich the communities to which they belong.

Outstanding Characteristics

College was founded in 1853 with the purpose of providing girls with a thorough academic education. We remain committed to that pioneering goal and pupils from all corners of the globe benefit from the knowledge and expertise gained from over 160 years of putting girls first and pursuing educational opportunities for young women. Girls are at the heart of all we do and we are ambitious for their futures.
