Our Curriculum

At Cobham Hall, we believe that learning should be enjoyable, and that subject teaching should be interwoven, with girls encouraged to apply learning from one subject to another.

Thanks to our ethos of experiential learning, it’s not uncommon to walk past a German classroom and discover a flair for the dramatic as girls role-play scenes from a shop, or see a Geography class with an artistic twist as they produce working papier-mâché volcanoes.

In Years 7 to 9, girls follow the English National Curriculum.  In Years 10 and 11, girls study for GCSE and IGCSE qualifications and from September 2018, the Sixth Form will study a broad curriculum based around A Levels.  

For those that require it, extra help is available for those for whom English is not their first language (see EFL) or those with specific learning needs (Learning Support).

In addition, we offer a range of Short Courses.  These include One Year GCSE/IGCSEs course, an Intensive English Language Support Programme (designed for students who do not yet have the level of English required to access the full curriculum at Cobham Hall) and a short stay/Pre-A Level course.

As a non-selective school, we are delighted to consistently achieve good examination results and are proud that our girls go on to some of the top universities both in the UK and abroad.
