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.
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".
Reward trip to Ten Pin bowling and the arcade, with Chips to take home!! (After a trip to the shops) Needless to say, very much enjoyed by all !!
As part of their evening program of events, Mr Willsmer and Ben have been off to the skate park in Cirencester whatever the weather.
Eastleach boys enjoyed a great night of climbing on Thursday at the Far Peak Climbing and Adventure Centre near Northleach.
Pupils from Coln House were given the opportunity to visit and experience a live auction at the Chartered Surveyors and Auctioneers – Kidson-Trigg.
Since September the Year 11 boys from from Coln House School, Fairford have been involved with organising and participating in maintenance activities at Berry Hill Primary School, Coleford. The students included Lucas, Ryan, Scott, Rhys and Kieran.
Our amazing music room has been built to create more therapeutic and relaxing environment for our students. This could not be done without the help of Coln St Aldwyn's Children's Group who raised money at their local summer fete and donated it to our school and also the Friends of Coln House Charity.
