Cobham Primary School

Cobham Primary School is a seven-class, one-form-entry community school, maintained by Kent County Council and catering for children aged 4 - 11. Our roll in January 2007 is 212, with class sizes of between 29 and 32.

The school buildings consist of two large self contained infant classes in the original Grade 2 listed school building, a more modern extension of two further classes and a new teaching block for our oldest year groups. We also have an ICT teaching suite, and interactive whiteboards in every classroom.

There is a detached school hall, which is used for assemblies, music and P.E. lessons and which also serves as the dining hall, and an attached schoolhouse. We benefit from having a full-sized playing field and two playgrounds, a library and a music room.

The school is located at the centre of the historic village of Cobham, which is noted for:

- its picturesque village street and range of historic buildings,

- its literary associations with Charles Dickens, who was a regular visitor to Cobham and who featured the village in "The Pickwick Papers",

- the world famous and unique collection of medieval brasses in the church,

- Cobham Hall (historic seat of Lord Darnley, now a public girls' school), Owletts and the Tudor Yeoman's House, Sole Street (both National Trust properties).

The National Curriculum is taught to all children of statutory school age. It comprises 5 "Core" subjects:




Information and communication Technology (ICT)

Religious Education

and 6 "Foundation" subjects:

Design & Technology




Art & Design

Physical Education

We also introduce a Modern Foreign Language to the children in Key Stage 2. In addition, we teach the cross-curricular subjects of Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship.

Copies of all National Curriculum schemes of work are available for inspection in the school. Whilst much of our teaching is subject-specific (particularly Maths, Science, History and Geography), some is based upon integrated Topic work, where, for example, the scientific, geographical and historic elements of the curriculum may be combined in an overall theme. This is particularly the case in the Infant (Key Stage 1) classes.

The teaching methods employed vary between a whole class, small group and individual approach, depending upon the subject, the type of lesson and the needs of the individual child.


School sweatshirts, polo shirts, t-shirts and other items are available from The Sewing Shop, Echo Square, Gravesend. We expect all parents to send their child to school in the correct uniform. Please do not send your child to school wearing a slogan-bearing T-shirt, jacket or coat.

Boys: navy blue polo shirt / pale blue or white shirt; school sweatshirt; grey trousers / shorts; plain socks; black shoes (do not send your child to school wearing trainers); closed-toe sandals in the summer.

Girls: navy blue polo shirt / pale blue or white blouse; school sweatshirt / navy blue cardigan; navy blue skirt / blue & white Summer dress; navy school trousers if preferred in winter; white socks (knitted tights in winter); sensible black shoes with low heels (no boots).
