About

Guild is the association of former pupils of Cheltenham Ladies’ College.

It was established in 1884 by College's 2nd Principal, Miss Beale and currently has more than 8,000 active members across 71 countries worldwide (see our members world map).

It is free to join and offers many benefits including events and careers support and networking.  If you know a former pupil of College who is not presently a Guild member then please ask her to contact the Guild Office - find out more.

Many Guild members also return to College to take part in the annual reunions and to see for themselves how impressively College has moved into the 21st century.  Guild is a wonderful source of support to College and former pupils generously offer support to current girls making University and career decisions.

Eve Jardine-Young (1990, Elizabeth), the Principal of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and herself a member of Guild, is the President. Read Eve’s welcome.
