Cheltenham College is a famous co-educational independent school, located in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England.
The first of all the major public schools of the Victorian period, it was opened in July 1841. An Anglican foundation, it is known for its classical, military and sporting traditions.
The 1893 book Great Public Schools by E. S. Skirving, S. R. James, Henry Churchill, and Maxwell Lyte, which had a chapter on each of what they regarded to be England's ten greatest public schools, included Cheltenham College.

Work and service
More than 600 Old Cheltonians (former pupils) were killed in the service of their country in World War I, and more than 400 in World War II. Cheltenham's military past is recognised by the fact that it is one of only two schools (the other being Eton) to have its own military colours (last presented in 2000 by The Princess Royal).

Cheltenham College chapel and library (Big Modern)
The names of those Old Cheltonians killed in the wars are recorded in the cloisters of the College chapel completed in the 1890s, which to a degree resembles King's College Chapel in Cambridge and is one of the finest chapels of any English public school.
Cheltenham has approximately 600 pupils (150 being day pupils) between the ages of 13 and 18. The fees are about ?28,000 a year, making it amongst the most expensive schools in the country. The school is now co-educational and maintains a strong academic reputation, with the majority of pupils going to The Russell Group Universities with a handful going on to Oxford and Cambridge universities. Both GCSE and A Level results are among the highest in Gloucestershire; however, these results are not accurately reflected in those league tables which do not recognise the IGSE in Mathematics (which is taken by the majority of pupils).
There is also a prep school, Cheltenham College Junior School, most of whose pupils go on to the senior school.
Cheltenham also runs an annual exchange program with the Wynberg Boys school in Cape Town, South Africa; a prestigious all-boys boarding school which co-incidently was established in the same year as Cheltenham, 1841.
Cheltenham has a strong sporting tradition, competing with larger single gender schools at the highest level. The first inter-school rugby football match was played between Rugby School and Cheltenham College, Cheltenham beating Rugby; and the "Cheltenham Rules" were adopted by the Rugby Football Union in 1887. The school has had particular success at raquets where, at times, they have dominated the Queen's Club Public Schools Competition; at polo where they were National Schools Champions in 1997, 1998, 2004, & 2005 and Arena Champions in 2004, 2005 & 2006, and again at rugby where they have reached the final of The National Schools 7's Festival four times in the last ten years, winning the competition in 1998, 2003 and 2004. Cheltenham's rugby XV was undefeated in the 2008 season.
There are ten houses, three of which are day houses; Southwood for the boys and Queens or Westal for the girls. Ashmead, Chandos and Westal (a boarding and day house) are the girls' boarding houses whilst the boys reside in either Boyne House, Christowe, Hazelwell, Leconfield or Newick House.
