Every child deserves their schooldays to be magical; something to be loved at the time and remembered fondly for years to come. It is not enough that schools simply prepare the children for the challenges that lie ahead. This is vitally important, of course, but it comes as a result of happy, engaged and challenged children throwing themselves into all that every day has to offer. Our job, as educators, is to inspire the children, to bring excitement and intrigue into every lesson. Having amazing facilities is wonderful, but it is the teacher in the classroom who can engage and motivate each child that really makes the difference. Everybody remembers the impact one particular teacher had on them, and the influence that inspirational teacher has had, often, over their whole life. And that is what life at Cheltenham Prep is all about!
“Definitely one of the best boarding schools in the UK, especially for military families! Our son was at The Prep boarding from Year 3 and he is now at the College and our daughter started in Year 4 and is loving it…the school focuses on growth mindset in a huge way and the staff are incredibly supportive. As a family, we love Cheltenham Prep and the boarding house has a fantastic ‘home away from home’ environment – highly recommend to any military family looking for that ‘forever school’ for their children” Current Parent
