What the school says...
Cobham Free School is a state funded independent school in central Cobham, Surrey. Taking best practice from the state and private sector, the school has small class sizes (max.24), specialist teaching from Reception (including French), pioneering cloud-based ICT solution (all pupils have their own Chromebooks), independent school term dates and exciting partnerships with local centres of excellence for Sport (Chelsea Football Club Foundation) and Music (Yehudi Menuhin School). The school also offers an extended day to help working parents from 7.45am until 6.00pm and a varied extra-curricular programme offering a wide range of opportunities.
The school's primary department which opened in 2012 recently achieved a good Ofsted rating in all areas and is now oversubscribed. A new 3 form entry (4 form from 2016) senior department opens in September 2014 with the arrival of its first cohort of Year 7 pupils, changing the school to all-through status. ...Read more

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
