PUPILS PLAY INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY

  


 

Cheltenham College students and 1st XI players, Emily and Jemima, recently represented Wales at U18 level in a test series against Scotland. Jemima made her international debut; a special occasion for any player. Emily recieved recognition and a great reward for her performance during this series and previous matches with a call-up to the Wales Senior Women's Development squad. This is another great opportunity for her to showcase her talents at a senior performance level.

WELCOME FROM THE HEAD OF COLLEGE

 

  

Mrs Nicola Huggett joined the school as Head in September 2018. 

Mrs Huggett says, “Our aim above all is to inspire young people who are willing to learn, ambitious to achieve and keen to get involved. Boys and girls who join College at any age, will leave us as well-rounded young men and women, having fulfilled their true potential and gained a place at a top university of their choice. They will have been prepared for life beyond school and be able to contribute positively to society.

I feel it is a great privilege to live and work within this wonderful community. We warmly welcome you to come and visit us and see why we believe this is a school where your child will truly flourish."
