For many years organisations have been hiring our facilities during the summer months, to offer summer schools for young people from all over the world.

We offer an extensive range of residential accommodation on campus, which sits alongside our exceptional facilities for teaching and learning.

Summer school packages are available at our campuses in both the picturesque regency town of Cheltenham, and in the historic city of Gloucester.

The majority of the rooms have single beds and en suite facilities, although some twin rooms and queen bed options are available. All rooms have WI-Fi access, and both catered and non-catered packages are available.
