"Welcome to Coombe Girls' School. 
School days are precious. They are the foundations on which our future lives are built – a time when opinions are formed, enthusiasms are awakened, friendships are made and characters are shaped. As a parent you’ll want to give your daughter the best possible foundation for her future life by sending her to a school where she will be happy and fulfilled.

For me as Headteacher the priority is to ensure that the learning that takes place will equip your daughter with the opportunities and experiences that not only develops her skills needed for the future but also enable her to excel in them; to find, recognise and exploit the opportunities that are there and to know where and how to look for them; to produce vibrant ideas that will secure a positive and successful future.

We are nationally recognised as an academically successful, diverse, open-minded school where your daughter will realise her potential, rise to the challenge and develop a lifelong love of learning."

- a community in which empathy, tolerance, integrity and shared purpose promote exemplary behaviour and outstanding relationships between all.

- developing confident learners who are, resilient and committed to shaping their world. They are proud of their abilities, highly ambitious and excited about their potential.

We are very proud of our best ever results this summer. A larger percentage than ever achieved the top grades at GCSE and A level. 

At GCSE, our 2016 Year 11 cohort achieved a staggering 88% at 5 A*- C with English and mathematics placing Coombe Girls' 13th nationally in the Telegraph's table of all ability schools and top in Kingston and Richmond at this threshold.

Year 13 also excelled themselves, with over 30% of entries graded A*/A and almost 80% of all entries A*-C.  We are very proud of all of our students' achievements and look forward to hearing about their future successes as they move on to a range of universities across the country.


"Students who join the school at the start of Year 7 are doing exceptionally well and they continue to do so as they move through the years. Current information on achievement shows that they are making rapid and sustained progress."


Discovering Potential

At Coombe Girls' School we’re proud of the wide variety of academic subjects we offer our pupils. This breadth of curriculum and our personalised approach to learning means that every girl will discover which disciplines suit her as an individual. We’ll help your daughter choose the subjects she enjoys and excels at, which she will need to succeed in her chosen path in life.

"Teaching is of exceptionally high quality. Teachers have high ambitions for their students. They support them very well to ensure they succeed in their next stage of education or employment."
