Wycliffe College is encouraging families from all over the UK to consider sending their children to school in Gloucestershire.

With its stunning countryside, world-famous cultural events like Cheltenham Literature Festival and fantastic job opportunities, the independent school believes the county is the ideal place for children to study.

The stress-relieving effects of being out in the countryside are well-known – with more and more families looking to move out of cities towards more rural locations. Nature can also enhance creativity too, which is great for growing minds.

Situated just outside Stroud in Gloucestershire, Wycliffe College is surrounded by the Cotswold countryside and benefits from a 52-acre site with its own dedicated forest school, while still being just 90 minutes away from London.

As well as the glorious countryside, Gloucestershire is also steeped in fascinating history, from Cirencester’s position as the Roman capital of England to the stunning Gloucester Cathedral famous for being Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies and the final resting place of King Edward II.

For families that don’t already live in Gloucestershire, or are considering boarding, Wycliffe students have the option of full, flexi or occasional boarding to choose from.

With a genuine home away from home feel at Wycliffe’s two prep school and eight senior school boarding houses, the school gives children a unique opportunity to feel part of a strong community in a supportive and nurturing environment, as well as receiving an excellent education.

Wycliffe College also offers places for day pupils and a minibus service with pick up and drop off points all over Gloucestershire, as well as in Malmesbury and Chepstow.

With so much on offer in the county, Wycliffe College hopes more families will choose to send their children to school in Gloucestershire this year.
