Perhaps the most famous girls’ school it the country, Cheltenham was founded in 1858 and has been churning out high flying ladies ever since.
The education is about as rigorous as you will find: a typical Cheltenham girl, will take over ten GCSES, play an instrument to a high standard and represent her county in a sports team. Sport is as good as you are likely to find at a girls’ boarding school.
Standards of behaviour are taken seriously at Cheltenham; things like appearance and punctuality are watched closely. The relationships that the girls build with the staff are close though formal. No girl is allowed to slip through the cracks or be neglected; rather the combination of a housemistress, tutor and form teacher ensures that each pupil is closely monitored throughout their time at school.
