Last update: 16 August 2017


• Pioneering girls' education 
• Outstanding academic excellence 
• Preparing girls for the future and their future 

There is no 'type' of girl at CLC. If your daughter likes asking 'why, what and how' then this is one of the best schools in the world in which to consider the answers. The future we are preparing the girls for is full of excitement and challenge. Governors, staff and pupils are committed to a compelling educational vision for our time.

This is reflected in our Vision, Mission and Values.


Regular Open Days are held throughout the year, both on weekdays and Saturdays. Ideal for a first visit, they are designed to give you a broad overview of the school and an opportunity to meet staff and girls.

A private visit with a member of our Admissions Department can give you a more detailed one-to-one meeting, which is more suited to a second or subsequent visit.

Meet the Head: Eve Jardine-Young


Eve became the 11th Principal of the Cheltenham Ladies’ College in 2011 having been educated at College some twenty years earlier. Eve has a degree in Engineering Science from Cambridge and started working for Ove Arup & Partners, Structural Engineers before following her heart into the teaching profession. She began her career at Radley College teaching Economics and subsequently spent ten years at Epsom College where positions held include Housemistress and Head of Sixth Form.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

My mother, who was also a teacher and remains one of the most inspiring people I have ever known.

What achievement are you most proud of as Head?

I am proud that we have received awards for the achievements of pupils every year for the past five years. However what is immeasurably lasting and valuable is the good judgement, courage, kindness, care, imagination and good sense shown by our pupils when they are out of our immediate direction and control.

What does a successful school look like to you?

Motivated, committed staff working alongside purposeful, engaged and reflective pupils, ideally in harmony with parents’ own values and hopes for their children.

What is the most important quality you want every child to have when they leave your school? And why?

An open mind and an independent love of learning throughout their lives. This will inspire young people to pursue their passions wherever they may lead, and to shape, understand and challenge world views for their generation. It will help them to become tolerant, resilient, interesting and fulfilled in a complex and changing world.

Please give 5 words to describe the ethos of your school.

Independence, creativity, excellence, integrity and empowerment.
