About The Cotswold Academy
The Cotswold School based in Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, is an outstanding, caring secondary comprehensive school. The School is a highly popular, happy and successful 11-18 Academy school set in beautiful, rural surroundings between Cheltenham and Oxford. At the School is an incredible group of staff who do go that extra mile to provide our pupils with an outstanding education. Our values of friendship and knowledge underpin all our activities across a broad spectrum of subjects and extra-curriculum offerings.
The Cotswold School has earned a superb reputation, locally and nationally, consistently appearing among the top state schools at both GCSE and A Level for many years.
Here is an overview:
The values of friendship and knowledge, symbolised on our school badge, underpin all our learning and development activities and also ensure that we support the wellbeing of our students and staff. A non-selective school, we have a fabulous parent and carer community, who are supportive of and engaged with their children’s learning.
Thanks to excellent student outcomes, we are the second-highest ranked comprehensive in the South West; and in the UK’s top 30 non-selective co-educational secondary schools, according to the influential Sunday Times 2020 Parent Power league tables. We have been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in the last four consecutive inspections.
Building the future
We continue to build on our success: we opened a Sixth Form centre in 2018 to support our thriving 16-18 provision; a fully refurbished gymnasium in 2019; and a £5.8 million 10-classroom space and modernised science labs are due in 2021. Pupil intake increases by 30 places in Year 7 from September 2021.
Outstanding learning and development
Our ethos is simple: a commitment to excellent teaching and aspiration, which drives progress and attainment. Children who learn with us thrive academically and also personally, with opportunities to take part in a huge range of extra-curricular clubs; writing competitions and debates; performances; community fundraising; student leadership; and careers events.
Aspirations and destinations
The great majority of our students stay with us into the Sixth Form and progress, in many cases, to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, and a variety of other prestigious destinations.
The Cotswold School is an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ school. It is an excellent place to teach, learn and develop; to share best practice and support the progression of fellow professionals and students.
