About Cheltenham Muscat
Opening in August 2021, Cheltenham Muscat will be the first UK premium school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18 in Oman. This will be a genuine partnership with Cheltenham College UK, who have been educating pupils both from the UK and abroad for one hundred and eighty years.
Cheltenham Muscat will offer
- first-class British education in the international context of Oman from EYFS through to IGCSE and A Level examinations
- academic excellence for all
- outstanding pastoral care and opportunities for personal development; and
- a broad range of co-curricular activities as part of a fulfilling school day.
The partnership with Cheltenham College UK is a great source of strength. Significant collaboration in areas such as vision and ethos, curriculum planning, professional development, and co-curriculum opportunities, ensure that we maintain the highest international standards. Through the strength of our partnership, both pupils and staff in Oman will benefit from the expertise and reputation Cheltenham College has built in the UK over the past two centuries.
We combine an academic focus with a broad extra curriculum, offering all students an extended and fulfilling day. Underpinning our curriculum is the value we attach to pastoral care. We understand that pupils fulfil their potential when they feel happy, supported and at ease in their surroundings. All members of staff, therefore, work hard to build a strong sense of community and promote supportive relationships, ensuring that children know that they always have a peer or adult to whom they can talk.
