Cheltenham College is opening a school in Muscat, Oman – the first British co-ed independent to establish a base in the country. Located on a 45,000sq m site, the purpose-built Cheltenham Muscat will welcome boys and girls in 2021/22. Cheltenham College Senior Deputy Head Crispin Dawson will become Founding Head of the new school, which is locally owned by an independent company led by the Ministry of Defence Pension Fund.
