Rendcomb College

Promising to let children be ‘free to be themselves’, SGGLA Independent School of the Year 2023, Rendcomb College in Cirencester, is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls between the ages of three and 18.

Rendcomb College, located just outside Cirencester, is set within a 230-acre parkland campus that boasts its own Forest School. 

The SGGLA Independent School of the Year 2023 aims to develop thoughtful, adventurous and ambitious young people, who are prepared to succeed in the future — and was rated excellent in its latest ISI inspection. 

Rendcomb cites its strong pastoral system for its ability to assist with the physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing of its 400-plus pupils and provides a range of after school activities to help promote character development, leadership skills and teamworking.

Alongside its core subjects, Rendcomb’s pupils are encouraged to pursue interests in sport, music, drama, the arts and outdoor education — which are all considered to be equally important to the school’s curriculum.

The school also has an impressive sixth form offering, with the Sixth Form Centre being housed inside a Grade II listed old rectory building, with state-of-the-art facilities, as well as an engaging range of subjects, additional qualifications and dedicated support through the UCAS application process.

Surrounded by rolling hills and countryside, Rendcomb College is located within the Gloucestershire Cotswolds and is easily accessible from both Cheltenham and Cirencester, with good links to London, too.
