Cobham has a strong history of high achievement and success across the curriculum, whether it be local, regional, national or international events. We value high performance and are very proud of the attainments of our students.
One of the benefits of a large school is the range of talents on offer from the staff due to this increased pool. We have talented, motivated and dedicated staff. These, along with targeted specialists from outside of our school, are used effectively to facilitate high achievement.
Future Problem Solving (FPS) thrives at Cobham. A highlight for us was gaining 5th place at the FPS World Finals in the United States of America in 2011 (1st place in the Drama Section). Cobham also receives a disproportionate number of awards at the Canterbury Science Fairs. In 2011 Cobham on its own secured over 1/3 of the prizes on offer, including second and third Best in Fair, which is open to secondary schools. Cantamaths, Literature Quiz, chess, sports, music and academic competitions are other areas that Cobham is renowned for success.
