The Cotswold School in Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, has earned an Ofsted outstanding school with a reputation as a popular and successful 11-18 comprehensive academy. It is an excellent place to teach, learn and develop; to share best practice and support the progression of fellow professionals and students.

Inclusive values

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.

Excellent outcomes

The Cotswold School is ranked the highest comprehensive in the South-West, according to the influential Sunday Times Parent Power guide. 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 theatre in 2019; and a £5.8 million 10-classroom space, new gymnasium and modernised science labs in 2021. Since September 2021, Year 7 student intake has increased by 30 places.

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 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.
