Welcome to Cobham Intermediate School. Our Motto is ‘Achieving For Life’.
Set in the north-west area of Christchurch, our co-educational middle school focuses on the education of 10–13 year old students. We have a total of 750 students from a diverse range of cultures, for whom we provide a rich and varied curriculum. For many years we have enjoyed much support from all international communities in Christchurch. We highly value relationships with all involved in our school.
Features of our school are our modern teaching and learning facilities. These include a well resourced science laboratory, music suite, school assembly hall, library, gymnasium and easy access to information technology equipment.
Academically our students achieve outstanding results in both international and national competitions.
Outstanding musical opportunities enable students to be members of performing groups of the highest standards, in both orchestral and choral music.
With a strong emphasis on studying, expectations on students to achieve across the curriculum at optimum levels are high. Our numbers advantage students through having specialist teachers in areas of strength and interest, enabling students to have the best opportunities. Many students participate in competitions, science fairs and research work, and students for whom English is a second language are given a comprehensive teaching/learning programme in addition to the school’s curriculum. International students are supported 24 hours a day by our International Director, Bronwyn Shalfoon. Communications are effective with the assistance of interpreters.
We welcome your interest in Cobham.
