UPDATE: Some of the restrictions on emailing have been lifted

We are pleased so say that we are now able to receive some external emails. Until we are completely confident that our servers are not at risk, external emails that include a link or an attachment will continue to be quarantined.  

Emails from us are not affected by the block that is in place, so you should still receive contact from us in this way, although it may take slightly longer than normal. We will let you know when these issues are resolved.

If you need us urgently, please call us.

Cheltenham school places

The County Council has a statutory duty to plan the provision of school places and to ensure there are sufficient, appropriately located places for all 4 to 16 year old young people in the County. This includes the commissioning of suitable school accommodation to support the promotion of high-quality educational standards and to ensure vulnerable learners get fair access to educational opportunities. The County Council manages the impact of rising and declining pupil numbers and helps to create a diverse community of schools.

Our review paper provides the data to inform the place planning requirements for both primary and secondary aged children who will seek a place at a Cheltenham school up to and including 2022 for primary and 2024 for secondary pupils.
