Examination results and leaver destinations

At Cobham Hall, girls take their GCSEs in Year 11 and study the International Baccalaureate in the Sixth Form.  A combination of high teaching standards and small class sizes ensure our girls get consistently good results in public examinations and positive value-added scores.

Individual support and guidance ensure that leavers gain entry to their university of choice.  In recent years Cobham Hall students have gone on to study at leading universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL (University College London), Durham and Imperial College.  Art students regularly gain places at Central St Martin’s in London, one of the finest Art colleges in the country.
