Background and goals
Astell House has had a long connection to College, as indeed it was commissioned by Lilian Faithfull when she was principal, as a boarding house for the teachers of Cheltenham Ladies' College before becoming a care home for the elderly. The current volunteering partnership was established more recently.
Girls from the Sixth Form volunteer at Astell House, and they are aged from sitxeen to eighteen years old
Frequency and duration
Students attend weekly for an hour and many girls continue this volunteering for terms at a time
