Cobham Primary School provides an all-round education for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. There are currently 215 children on the registration roll, being taught in seven classes. The class sizes range from 30 to 32 pupils.
Every class has a ‘super’ Teacher as well as a full time ‘fantastic’ Teaching Assistant. The school site is picturesque with many outstanding outdoor features. We benefit from having a full-sized playing field and two playgrounds. We also utilise many of the local areas of natural beauty to enhance our children’s learning. Classrooms are large and attractively decorated. Our school library with its beautiful mural and our well-equipped ICT suite are used extensively to engage the children in their learning.
The school is located in the historic village of Cobham, steeped in medieval and Dickensian links to the past and serves the rural area south of Gravesend and the A2 trunk road. It traditionally takes children from the local village communities of Cobham, Sole Street and Luddesdown, although many pupils travel from surrounding towns and villages.
The school is a listed building which opened in 1874. It was originally given to the village by the Earl of Darnley, who lived at Cobham Hall and whose coat of arms adorns the school crest. Previous to this, the school was housed upstairs in the Stone House, adjacent to Cobham church.
The original flint building contains two spacious infant classrooms, self-contained with their own toilet facilities and two outside play areas. The main school building has three further classrooms. The three oldest year groups are in a modern purpose-built block with their own toilets and changing rooms. The school hall is a detached building to the rear of the main school, adjacent to the village bowls green. The school offices are located in one of the two attached school houses.
Cobham Primary School facilities include:
Large Playing Field
The Headteacher is always pleased to talk to prospective parents and to show them around the school. Parents are also welcome to attend one of our Open Mornings which are held at the end of each Autumn Term. The best way to get to know whether our school is right for your child is to visit and see it for yourselves. Once you have seen the children and the school, we have no doubt you will agree that children feel happy, safe and are learning in a creative, fun and vibrant way!
