Dr Alex Peterken, headmaster of Cheltenham College, said: "This has been a terrible shock for the whole college; we are a very close-knit boarding community and it has hit us all very hard indeed.
"A chapel service has already been held for him and our prayers and thoughts go out to his family, friends and peers.
"As a boarding school, our primary duty of care is to all of our pupils and staff. A team of college chaplains, counsellors, house staff and matrons is working closely with all pupils to provide the support they need at this difficult time."
Mr Simon Conner, housemaster at Cheltenham College, added: "This was a top boy; a star pupil of whom we were all very proud."
