Cotham is a unique school: it is diverse, vibrant, full of life and vitality and has the feel of a large family.

Our students tell us that they love the school and really enjoy learning within and beyond the classrooms.

At the heart of our ethos is learning and Cotham School is a real learning community where we all learn together.

We are a caring, happy school and we pride ourselves on our admission and transition process that enables our new entrant pupils to settle in quickly and feel a part of the school from day one.

We run regular open mornings where you can come in and look around the school.  Please do contact us and come and visit.
