Welcome to Cobham Intermediate School.
Our Motto is 'Achieving for Life'.

Cobham Intermediate is a successful and highly regarded school, set in the North West area of Christchurch. Our co-educational Middle School focusses on the education of 10-14 year old students. We are the largest intermediate in Christchurch and the South Island, with 700 students from a diverse range of cultures, for whom we provide a rich and varied curriculum.

Students will receive an education that prepares them for high school and beyond.

Cobham Intermediate has a reputation as the leading intermediate school that maximises the benefits of our large size to provide specialised options for individual students. We foster each student’s strengths and talents, providing many opportunities for these to flourish.

Our students achieve excellent results; they regularly win scholarships, as well as local, national and international competitions. Our staff have high standards for themselves and high expectations of the students in their care.

We have an unconditional focus on the growth, progress and high educational achievement of each and every unique student. At Cobham Intermediate you will experience:

  • Passionate teachers who are committed to the education of emerging adolescents.
  • A strong values based education.
  • A culture of care and support.
  • Numerous academic, sporting and cultural opportunities.

We have an International Director who is solely committed to guiding international students, welcoming them and their families to Christchurch, providing pastoral care and ensuring they are committed to their studies.
