House System

The school is organised in House groups for some pastoral and competitive activities. The groups allow pupils to mix with children and staff from different departments, feel part of a team and take on leadership roles. The Houses are named after our local links and inspirational people: Menuhin, Chelsea, Combe and Peel. House points are given to reward individual and group achievement in all aspects of school life, including adherence to behaviour rules and the promotion of our values. The Governors Shield is awarded to the House with the most points awarded at Sports Day.


Named after Lord Menuhin who founded the Yehudi Menuhin School in Stoke D'Abernon and whose work has inspired musicians worldwide.


We work closely with the coaches from Chelsea Football Club Foundation to run an exciting and successful football programme.


The Combe Family have been well-established in Cobham for many generations and are an important part of the history of the community.


We were probably the first free school to identify and be sited in a police station. Peel House is named after Sir Robert Peel who founded the Metropolitan Police Force in 1829 when he was Home Secretary.
