Message from Executive Head  - Michaela Khatib

Michaela Khatib - Executive Head Designate
On behalf of the Cobham Free School Team, I would like to thank everyone who has supported 
the project and has allowed our vision for an exceptional school to become a reality. We are looking forward to many exciting times ahead, particularly since the opening of our new Senior Department in September 2014.

At Cobham Free School we believe in offering excellent standards of tuition, delivered by a team of highly qualified, experienced staff. We believe that all pupils should have access to specialist teaching from the moment they arrive in Reception and we feel very privileged to have developed partnerships with Chelsea FC Foundation and The Yehudi Menuhin School to help us achieve this aim.

I am delighted and proud to be part of the Cobham Free School Team. It is a pleasure to be helping to create an environment where a new generation of children will be inspired to be creative, independent learners. It is also exciting to work with such a talented staff team, to offer our pupils a wide range of experiences, and to allow them to acquire the skills and knowledge to help them achieve their ambitions in life.
