The picturesque and historic town of Cricklade in north Wiltshire, where the school is located, lies just outside the Cotswolds, an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
The centre of the town, once a Saxon stronghold, is situated on the banks of the River Thames. Many of Cricklade’s buildings date from between the 11th and 16th centuries and there is a fine parish church, St Sampson's, built in the 13th century. We have close links with both St Sampson's and our local Catholic Church, St Mary’s. Just outside the town is a National Nature Reserve, home to the rare Snakeshead Fritillary, and through which The Thames Path National Trail passes.
The surrounding countryside and nearby Cotswolds are quintessentially English, with gently undulating hills and valleys dotted with honey-coloured stone villages. Among the delightful villages and historic market towns is the bustling market town of Cirencester, some nine miles from the School. It holds a colourful street market twice weekly in the large Market Place. It is also home to the Royal Agricultural College, and the prestigious Cirencester Polo Club.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside, we are almost equi-distant between Cirencester, Gloucestershire (9 miles) and Swindon, Wiltshire (8 miles). There are excellent road and rail links. The School is approximately 11 miles north of Junction 15 of the M4 and 25 miles east of Junction 11A of the M5. The main-line railway stations in Swindon and Kemble (Cirencester) are also close by.
