General introduction to Dean Close School
Set on a beautiful 50-acre site near the centre of Cheltenham, Dean Close is a long-standing co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged 2-18. Education across all three schools is as much about building character and relationships as it is about gaining knowledge, with the Christian heart of the School & its powerful tutorial system creating a warm and friendly atmosphere amongst staff and pupils.
Dean Close is an incredibly busy place; recently the internationally renowned Carducci Quartet were appointed as Head of the Strings Department; the boys & girls senior hockey teams toured South Africa; Close-Up Theatre Company achieved sell-out status with The History Boys at the Edinburgh Fringe 2010 for the 8th time in a row, all alongside the many and various daily activities across the schools, both academic and co-curricular.
The Dean Close community is small enough to allow everyone to know each another, to feel valued and to get fully involved in School life. At the same time, it is large enough to have an extremely strong boarding and day community, vibrant and exciting creative arts, impressive academic results and great sports results, making it a very special place.
The next Open Morning will take place on Saturday 5 March when you will have the opportunity to view Senior, Prep and Pre-prep schools, if desired. The Open Morning starts at the Prep School (Lansdowne Road) at 9.30am and at the Senior School at 11am. Both comprise a Welcome from the Head, a tour of the school with a pupil and opportunities to chat to staff. The morning concludes with refreshments and a light buffet lunch at the Senior School. All members of the family are welcome to attend. To register interest, please call 01242 258044.
