Coombes Girls School

Head Teacher's Welcome


Moving up to senior school is a giant step in the journey of your daughter’s life, but it shouldn’t be a leap into the unknown.  As a parent you’ll want to be absolutely confident that you’re doing the right thing for her, by sending her to an outstanding school that will set her firmly on the path towards higher education and onto a lifetime of success. Rest assured, Coombe is that school.


Our motto is ‘preparing you for a world of opportunity’ and we’ll do everything to provide your daughter with a happy and fulfilling school life that’s the perfect foundation for a successful future. What that future will look like is hard to tell; the rapid pace of technological change means that many of your daughter’s generation will be working in jobs we can’t even imagine yet. But for pupils at Coombe Girls’ School, who have been well equipped to prosper in this challenging new world, it’s a wonderfully exciting prospect.
