Short Stay and Pre-A Level

Students are welcome to join Cobham Hall for one or two terms to experience an English boarding school education.  

Available to those aged 11 to 16, short stay students are welcome to join their relevant Year Group for up to two terms. For international students, whose first language is not English, English as a Foreign Language (EFL) lessons will form part of their timetable, and as such may be combined with elements of the Intensive English Support Programme.

Girls would follow the same academic programme as the One Year GCSE/IGCSE Course, and so girls would typically study Mathematics, Biology, Geopgraphy, and English as a Second Language.  However, for Short Stay/Pre A Level students who are not taking GCSEs/IGCSEs, their programme of study may be able to be suitably adapted to cater for their specific interests or requirements.  Please contact our Registrar to discuss the options available.

The Pre-A Level Course prepares international students for the demands of A Level (Advanced Level) study. Students develop the language and academic skills needed to be successful in their A Level studies and future academic careers.

Short Stay students board with their relevant Year Group. All girls will be fully integrated into the life of the School.
