Welcome from Dr Graham Parton (Head of School)

Welcome to the School of Education website.

Here at the University of Gloucestershire our practice is based on a clearly defined set of values; the transformational potential of education, the centrality of social justice to our actions, the value of community and a belief that diversity enriches learning. As educators we, like you, are interested both in the immediate impact our practice can have as well as the investment in the futures of our learners.

Based at our historic Francis Close Hall campus, just a few minutes’ walk from Cheltenham town centre, the School of Education has been making a significant contribution to education for over 150 years. Leading the way in high quality research, teaching and professional education, we have earned an excellent reputation both in terms of student satisfaction and quality of course delivery.

Providing exceptional support, specialist subject expertise and a network of over 400 schools for first-rate placement opportunities, if you engage with us, you will become part of a close-knit community.
