"I am truly delighted and moved at the warmth that has been shown towards College. Much has been accomplished due to the generosity of Old Cheltonians. School fees meet the running costs of College but leave little left over for improvements to our physical structure and for other developments; this is why your support is so needed. I hope you will consider supporting your College as our renaissance continues and as we look to regain our place as one of the leading schools in the UK." 
Dr Alex Peterken, Headmaster of Cheltenham College.


Welcome to Cheltenham College Foundation

The Development Office exists to develop relationships with OCs, parents and friends to invest in the future of College.

Fees pay for the running costs alone. For College to be able to develop its facilities, expand into new areas of teaching and learning, provide increased extra curricular opportunity, and widen participation to those who would not be able to afford to pay for a College education; the support and involvement of our OCs, parents and others is crucial and most welcome.

Through your generous support, College has refurbished the Library and Big Classical. We have opened a new girls' boarding house and a new CCF extension has been funded due to generous donations. Our Chapel Organ has been enhanced with a new 32ft Double Ophicleide stop. There are still many opportunities to get involved - please click here to learn more. 

We also have a Regular Giving programme. With your support we will be able to fund some projects of immediate need across both Schools and increase our ongoing bursary provision, not only for current pupils, but also for generations of Cheltonians to come. 

To find out more about current or upcoming projects or how you might help please feel free to give me a call on 01242 706815 or contact me by email.
