Short Courses

At Cobham Hall, just under 30 nationalities are represented in our student body. We welcome girls from around the world to experience the educational opportunities we offer. As well as Intensive English Language Courses, we also offer a Pre-A Level course. 

Whilst many girls come and join as permanent full boarders, some girls may want to come for an exchange, and some for an 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 £12,200
Years 10 and 11 £12,990
Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13) £13,990

For non-native English speakers who do not yet have the level of English required to access the full curriculum, we offer Intensive English Language Support. English as a Foreign Language (EFL) lessons will form the basis of their timetable. The number of EFL lessons per week will be dependent on ability. We also offer Pre A-Level for girls 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 EFL lessons with other subjects and cultural visits.
