Cobham Hall is unique and offers many exciting opportunities to students. It is a relatively small boarding and day school for girls, yet has a worldwide clientele and combines English tradition with a 21st century outlook. The school occupies a beautiful 16th century manor house, set in 160 acres of landscaped parkland close to London.

Traditional subjects are taught to a high academic standard with the International Baccalaureate taught in the Sixth Form. An exceptional range of extra curricular activities is offered, covering sports, music, drama and debating, as well as outdoor pursuits, including The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. Involvement in the local community is strongly encouraged and there is a programme of community service for Sixth Formers.

One theme underlies the diversity of opportunity at Cobham Hall. As an international school, Cobham Hall is a member of Round Square - an association of schools linking Europe, Africa, North America and Asia-Pacific - which emphasises the development of the student as a whole person. Academic achievement is vital, but the 'pillars' of Round Square are also fundamental to this ethos: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. Cobham Hall students are constantly expanding their horizons and stretching themselves in both traditional and new directions.

Cobham Hall is essentially a boarding school, and so offers a full social and community life. As well as the usual Tutorial system, there is an outstanding level of pastoral care for students once the teaching day has ended. Rated "Excellent" in a number of areas by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, including pupil achievement and pastoral care.

The School has developed a successful Wellbeing programme, which is designed to enable girls to build up their resilience to deal more effectively with stress and anxiety, and includes mindfulness and meditation sessions, and yoga. Students put theoretical knowledge gained from PSHE classes, such as nutrition and health, into practice with cookery and volleyball/netball sessions.

Excellent road, rail and air links and as well as offering a variety of local daily transport routes.
