Life at Rendcomb College encourages young people to embrace as many experiences as possible through our holistic approach. We encourage Rendcombians to think independently, to challenge and to engage. We provide breadth in our co-curricular provision, enabling pupils to identify their strengths and aptitudes. Pupils acquire new friendships, gain confidence and new skills as they mix with students outside of their peer and tutor groups.

With our ethos of preparing pupils with skills for life, and readying them to face their next adventure, our activities programme is designed to expose pupils to a wide variety of challenges and new interests so that they leave Rendcomb with a varied portfolio of pursuits and experiences. Rendcomb also provides a pastoral framework that creates physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, preparing pupils for life beyond College, fostering confidence, self-reliance and honesty.

If you are happy, you will thrive.
