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....
Coln House pupils and staff had the pleasure and opportunity to visit the latest Sculpture exhibition held at the stunning Gloucester Cathedral called "Crucible 2".
As the new school year started, we have continued with our challenges for the students. This time we asked the staff and pupils to apply for a place on a canoe challenge from Cricklade to Lechlade.
Miss Browne/Mrs Crooks set out a little surprise for two tired paddlers.
As the new school year is well under way, some of the pupils have taken the opportunity to have some fun on the River Thames before the weather turns too cold.
The essence of the South West Chef of the Year competition is to demonstrate skill, creativity in cooking and knowledge of produce from the South West of England. The competition is now in its eleventh year and has gained high regard in the hospitality industry with support from a judging panel made up of some of the regions most esteemed and revered chefs.
We took a little time out on Thursday evening to take a stroll along part of the Thames path at Cricklade and a disused/redundant section of the Thames Severn Canal. We started at the car park near the rugby ground.
The latest evening expedition walk started out from Chedworth, there was a compliment of three, Scott, Josh and James.
As part of Food technology a group of key stage three pupils went to visit Abbey Home Farm in Cirencester.
Keble class planned and cooked a barbecue lunch in Food Technology.
A big thankyou to all those that helped support the May Fayre, from all at Coln House School!!
We parked the car at the Waterhay car park and set off on a circular walk taking in the delights of the back streets of Ashton Keynes and several lakes.
With the warm weather apparent the pupils and staff of Sherborne took full advantage of the local countryside aspects of Fairford. The pupils walk amongst the river Coln for long period of time, skimming stones, looking for crayfish under the rocks and embracing the river banks for duck nests or other amazing features.
This years 'Leavers Lunch ' had an Italian theme, our year 10 team produced the following menu:
This year the Bake off had a decidedly savoury air, with the required categories being, a quiche, savoury scones and cheese straws. The jobs were divvied up amongst the boys, Jordon made the cheese straws, making the pastry and rolling out, egg washing and cutting up.
This week the expedition walk took place on a Tuesday and went back 5000 years in time as we visited the Henge monument at Avebury. Lexxie, Lauren and Ryan had not been before and were intrigued by the bank and ditch and the large sarsen stones that are placed around the circular structure.
Thanks to the "Brewery Arts Centre" in Cirencester eight pupils from "Coln House School" had the fantastic opportunity to be involved in an "Animation Workshop Day".
Thank you Mr James! What a privilege to be shown around the local fire station. The boys had a wonderful time, then all got very wet!!!
