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).
