Message from Founder Executive Head  - Michaela Khatib

Michaela Khatib - Executive Head Designate
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to 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 links 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, creating 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.
