2019-2020

New Sixth Form Centre - OPENED January 2020

The new Sixth Form Centre lies within a Grade II listed building named the Old Rectory where original features such as fireplaces and cornices have been restored. Despite its listed status, the Old Rectory features plenty of mod-cons and is positioned within the heart of the campus providing a dedicated space for Rendcomb’s oldest students. The development of the Sixth Form Centre helps prepare pupils for the changing needs of university and future employment by providing a unique mix of environments. There are modern study spaces that encourage individual and collaborative working and there are sitting rooms, a kitchen and a games room providing students with the opportunity to relax during the working day. There’s also a boardroom which provides a space for meetings and is a base for the growing Enterprise and Careers programme.

Extension to boarding facilities: Godman House

The House became the day and boarding house for Year 7 to 9 boys and girls  in September 2019. 

Godman House  underwent an extension and significant refurbishment throughout.  It  has 40 beds in  dormitories of 3/4 beds. A large central common room also links the separate boys' and girls' wings.
