Short Courses

Just under 30 nationalities are represented in Cobham Hall’s student body. We welcome students from around the world to experience the educational opportunities we offer, which include an exciting range of short course options.

Whilst many students join as permanent full boarders, some prefer to come for an exchange or a shorter term opportunity to develop their English Language skills. Short Stay students are integrated into existing Tutor Groups and may also join mainstream classes where possible to provide a fully immersive experience. Short Stay Boarding fees (ie for one term or less) are as follows:

Year Group Termly Fee
Years 7, 8 and 9 £13,950
Years 10 and 11 £14,500
Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13) £15,200

This fee is inclusive of tuition, food and accommodation, trips and activities, hire of uniform and sportswear, hire of bedlinen and our standard programme of English as an Additional Language (two lessons per week).

For English speakers who do not yet have the level of English required to access the full curriculum, we are able to offer additional EAL lessons in our Intensive English Language Programme. The number of additional EAL lessons per week this includes (over and above the standard two) will be dependent on ability, and will be chargeable on top of the above Short Stay Boarding fees. We also offer Pre A-Level for students aged 16. This can be a stand-alone course for up to a year and may provide the foundation for entry into our Sixth Form. This would be dependent on subject experience, level of English and the standard achieved during the Pre A-Level programme.

For those looking for a short stay during the Summer, we also offer an exciting immersive Intensive English Summer Programme. An integrated timetable, covering up to four weeks in June, combines EAL lessons with other subjects and cultural visits.
