Life at Cobham

Life at Cobham is like a small town – busy and bustling from early in the morning until late at night.

As a boarding school, we are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week during term time. With more than half of our students spending the majority of their formative years living at school, we know it is important to offer lots of things to do and lots of things to try. We do our best to fulfil as many of their needs as possible – physical, social, spiritual, intellectual and emotional. There is certainly no shortage of activities to get involved in – from cookery club to netball club, Friday night games to a Sunday night fashion show, Youth Clubs in the local community to Christian Union and much more besides.

We are a tight-knit community and regardless of whether our students are daygirls or boarders, we want them to experience all the advantages of boarding school life. Daygirls can join any activity and any meal if they wish. It is free for daygirls to come early for breakfast and stay late for supper and Prep. Flexi–boarding is available as a one-off, or on a regular basis. Girls can stay for weeks at a time if parents are travelling or unable to have their daughter at home.
