About Rendcomb College Junior School

Rendcomb College is an HMC and IAPS co-educational day and boarding school for children aged from 3 to 18 located within 230 acres in the picturesque Gloucestershire Cotswolds. Cheltenham and Cirencester are within close proximity and Day pupils commute from the surrounding areas of Gloucester, Swindon, Stroud and Oxford.

We educate approximately 400 boys and girls across our Nursery, Junior and Senior Schools. Boarding starts in Year 7 (age 11) and both Boarders and Day pupils share the same Houses enabling strong friendships and comradery to flourish throughout the College.

Life at Rendcomb College encourages young people to embrace as many experiences as possible through our holistic approach. We encourage Rendcombians to think independently, to challenge and to engage. We provide breadth in our co-curricular provision, enabling pupils to identify their strengths and aptitudes. Rendcomb provides a pastoral framework that creates physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, preparing pupils for life beyond College, fostering confidence, self-reliance and honesty.

Our school has a committed staff and wonderful pupils but, please don’t take my word for it alone; I invite you to come and visit us – we should be delighted to welcome you.

I hope that you will come and experience for yourself how we seek to treat each and every child as an individual and allow them to discover their own talents. Whether they arrive in our Nursery at 3 years old or enter the Junior School slightly later in life, we aim to sow the seeds that will allow our pupils to develop into thoughtful, adventurous and academically ambitious individuals who are enthusiastic about learning and, moreover, enjoy coming into school each day.

Any successful school has to be a community and, situated in the midst of beautiful surroundings, we believe that to be a part of the Rendcomb community is a special place to be.
