Head PhotoWelcome to Cobham Hall. Since its foundation in 1962 as a secondary Boarding and Day School, Cobham Hall has been providing a first-class education to girls from the local area and around the world. I am proud and privileged to be Headmistress and to lead a school with a richly diverse community of girls who are able to study and learn in such beautiful surroundings.

I have always found that Cobham Hall is a place where everybody is made to feel welcome. The only thing we ask of our girls when they join the School is that they are prepared to make the most of the opportunities presented to them. There is no doubt that Cobham Hall is a happy place where life-long friendships are made. The corridors ring to the sound of laughter as girls of all ages and backgrounds mix, socialise, learn together, and learn about each other.

With intentionally small teaching and pastoral groups, we are able to really get to know each girl and to provide the care and support she needs. We aim to help each girl to achieve her potential whether in the spheres of academic success, music, drama, sport or art. Each girl is encouraged to try her hand at everything and challenged to discover her talents. The success of our sports teams, the quality of our music and drama productions, and the standard of our academic examination results are all testament to what Cobham Hall girls find they are capable of achieving and they are rightly proud of themselves and of their School.

Pastoral care at Cobham Hall is recognised by the Independent School Inspectorate to be excellent. With good communication between Boarding and Teaching staff helping to ensure a holistic, integrated system of pastoral care, the staff at Cobham Hall are good at integrating girls whatever their backgrounds, needs, and talents.

Diversity, Challenge and Care - the three things that I believe make Cobham Hall stand out. I hope that as you look further into our website you will want to visit us in person to confirm that Cobham Hall is the right school for your daughter's education.
