Exeat week-ends exist but are not compulsory.

Strengths:

Cobham Hall School is unlike other good girls schools, where the academic focus can feel a little hot-housey at times. The school is academic but not overly so. The Round Square ethos ensures a broader focus on learning both inside and outside the classroom.

The creative pursuits are strong here, especially art and music. We saw some amazing photography, ceramics and oil paintings last time we visited.

Cobham Hall School has an amazing, warm, inclusive community spirit. Whether self-confident or shy, whether extrovert or introvert, all girls are accepted and welcomed.

Weaknesses:

The close proximity to London makes Cobham Hall a popular choice with rich London families. It has been known that pupils on occasion flaunt their wealth at school.
