About The Cotswold School

The School, which is based in the stunning village of Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, has earned, and continues to do so, an outstanding reputation as a highly popular, happy and successful 11-18 comprehensive school.

Set in over 30 acres of beautiful surroundings between Cheltenham and Oxford, the School has an incredible group of staff and governors who do go that extra mile to provide our students with an inspiring education – fully equipping them for their future lives. Our values of friendship and knowledge, symbolised on our badge, underpin all our activities across a broad spectrum of subjects and extra-curricular offerings. Our mission – ‘the pursuit of academic excellence and individual achievement within a caring community’ is evident the minute you walk through our door.

Recent accolades which verify and validate these exceptional standards at the Cotswold School include:

  • Awarded The Sunday Times Comprehensive School 2015-2016 – an award based on A*/A grades at GCSE and A*-B grades at A Level
  • Achieved, for the fourth consecutive time, Outstanding Ofsted, across all categories (latest March 2015)
  • Designated as a National Teaching School by the National College of Teaching and Leadership
  • Fifteen students (in the last three years) have received Oxbridge offers
  • Students going on to study at Russell Group Universities has seen an unprecedented doubling in growth over a five year      period, from 2012 to 2016 leavers
  • The new, flagship Sixth Form Centre opened in autumn 2017, ensuring the Sixth Form is now on one site, offering bespoke and state-of-the-art facilities

Put simply, these are awards for excellence. These results, across a wide-ranging number of subjects, clearly demonstrate the commitment and professionalism of all the teaching staff – a team to be truly proud of – we aim to continually move the School forward, but at the same time, we always concentrate on the fundamentals of this job – teaching quality, pastoral care and upholding the unique ethos of The Cotswold School.” Will  Morgan, Principal

What people say about us

I wanted to say thank you to you, your colleagues and your terrific choir for the contribution that you all made to the performance of my piece on Saturday night. I think it was incredibly impressive to have such a large choir from the school and one that not only sang so well but also presented itself in such a professional and committed way.
