Working in the vicinity of The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Art    

Hester’s Way was initially constructed as a Wimpey no-fines council housing complex in the 1950s and 1960s as part of a nationwide effort to provide additional housing after World War II. The homes accommodated a diverse group of people, including employees of GCHQ, which was established in the area in 1952, and workers in local engineering firms.[6] Over the next few decades, changes in society and the economy, including an increase in owner-occupied homes and changes in housing allocation, led to a concentration of poverty in the mostly social housing neighbourhood.

The term “Cheltenham West” was first used to describe the area around 2016, when local volunteers created the Cheltenham West community website and newsletter. Prior to that, it was often referred to as Hesters Way or West Cheltenham, both of which were not geographically accurate and carried negative connotations.
