Welcome to Coln House School. It is my pleasure, as Headteacher, to welcome you to our website. We hope this will show you how committed we are to providing the highest possible quality of education for both boys and girls. We hope that you will also be able to see that our excellent reputation is well founded.
Each child is treated as an individual and strong pastoral support from the outset creates an atmosphere of security and cooperation. Relationships between staff and students are based on mutual trust. Discipline is firm but fair. This is a friendly school - it is important to us that your child should feel safe, valued and happy....
After last year's negative report, I am delighted to be inform you that this year's inspection came out with an overall grade of 'GOOD' with two 'OUTSTANDING' grades in 'quality of residential provision and care' and 'outcomes for residential students'. Congratulations to all the staff and especially the new leadership team for all their hard work in getting the recognition we deserve. For the full report please click here.
As Term 3 winds down some of the pupils through outstanding behaviour have enjoyed a fantastic array of reward trips this term. From Laser Quest, crazy golf, swimming at the oasis to ten pin bowling.
'The Colnies' our school music band is looking for a bass guitarist. We have successfully recorded four rock/blues songs in 2015 and we are looking for an enthusiastic team player with good sense of humour to join our band.
Funds have been raised to develop a café in the Food Technology Room and work will begin at half term to make this happen.
Table Tennis has become very popular in term 3 especially for the boys on Eastleach.
Harvey comes to play!
Such a joy for Aldsworth to have this fella here to run around with. Harvey belongs to Mrs Stubbly. He is huge ! A massive bear who has been coming in here for almost 2 years.
On the 22nd January 2015, the SkillForce crew at Coln House School went to RAF Brize Norton to learn about JADTEU. JADTEU is all about parachuting and stands for Joint Air Delivery Test and Evaluation Unit. JADTEU is a unit all about testing new parachutes, abseiling and fast roping from helicopters.
Thursday 22nd January saw Mrs Alderman and Connor embark upon a 4.3 mile walk taking in some of the historic industrial remnants of the area. We went to the Red Bridge car park on the spine road and set off up the bridleway that runs along the track bed of the old railway line.
Connor and Miss Jones spent a busy evening making butterfly cakes and choc chip cookies to pacify the voracious appetites of the staff. These proved popular, Connor said "The butterfly cakes just flew off the tray".
