What The Good Schools Guide says..
School ‘honoured’ that remains hugely oversubscribed – and not hard to see why parents would be bonkers to bust a gut securing place anywhere else if successful here. If daughter has tried out (unsuccessfully) for nearby grammars – and many have - don’t worry, stress parents. The bright flourish here, some reckon more so than they would have done in the febrile atmosphere of ultra-selective alternatives where can take full marks just to get noticed.

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2011, Mrs Deborah Walls (40s). As executive principal of Coombe Secondary Schools Academy Trust, also has oversight of Coombe Boys’ and Knollmead, formerly a failing primary school but now undoubtedly destined for far greater things.
Her second time here – after teaching posts at Wallington High School for Girls and Langley Park, did stint in 1996 as head of languages, before being promoted to assistant head, moving back to Wallington as deputy head in 2003 and then closing in on Coombe again when was appointed in same role at boys’ school. ‘When you’ve worked [here] it becomes a part of you,’ she says. ‘It’s more than just a job, it’s part of your life.’
