Here at Faraday, we are committed to giving every child a first-class education, with small classes, a quality teaching and a personal approach.   In these formative years, we hope to inspire a love of learning and that this desire to explore, grow and create will stay with our pupils for life.   Faraday offers regular open mornings, where you would be welcome to come and see us in action.

Our school bus picks up from a wide range of locations, including Island Gardens – opposite the Greenwich Foot Tunnel exit. Additionally, there is a direct private boat link from North Greenwich Pier.

Cobham Hall’s Core Values of Trust, Respect, Honesty, Kindness and Tolerance are the foundation for our educational experience.  We are an independent Round Square Boarding and Day School for girls, with approximately 180 students representing some 25 nationalities. offering full, weekly and flexi-boarding, Cobham Hall provides ultimate flexibility for families.

The School is based in an impressive 16th Century Manor House nestled in 150 acres of historic parkland; an idyllic rural setting, yet close to A2/M2, A20/M20 and M25 and Ebbsfleet International Station.   For Day Girls and Weekly Boarders local daily minibus transport is available, serving a number of areas including Greenwich, Blackheath, Chislehurst and Sidcup, with routes regularly reviewed.

A wide range of subject options is offered at GCSE and A-Level.  Small class sizes mean girls have the attention they need academically and the support they need pastorally.  Cobham Hall encourages pupils to achieve their fullest all-round potential, supplementing an integrated academic programme with a wide range of extra-curricular activities.  By looking after our students’ emotional and physical wellbeing girls feel happier and are able to flourish.

Our next Taster Afternoon/Sleepover and Open Morning take place on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th October 2019.
