Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make.
At Coombe, we aim to ensure that all students access the most they can from their education, enjoy their time with us and achieve their highest potential.
As a single-gender school, our education provides a learning environment formulated specifically to the development of curious, creative and confident students so they are prepared for a world of opportunity in the 21st Century.
There are strong academic standards across the school and students are encouraged to have high expectations. Our GCSE and A Level results - which are well above the national average - place us amongst the highest performing schools across the country.
Coombe Girls’ aims to provide a caring and enlightened environment in which the talents of each individual are developed and flourish.
We encourage students to be creative and open-minded and to strive for academic, sporting and cultural excellence. Students are motivated to challenge themselves academically and personally, to grow confidence in their skills and knowledge and to be tolerant and respectful of others. We support them to be curious and take risks in a healthy way - to be brave, not perfect.
We invite you to come and see for yourself what makes our school special and our pupils so successful and happy.
Mrs E Barns
Being at CGS gives me the opportunity to impact the lives of students as well as show them diversity in an evolving world.
I have been a teacher at CGS since 2014 and enjoy my roles as Head of Year and Head of Geography.
I joined the central team of the Coombe Academy Trust as part of my IT apprenticeship and I’ve had an incredible journey ever since.
I provide support for development in Modern Foreign Languages and work across the Academy Trust.
The school not only focus on their student development but their staff too. I have been provided with constant support since I started in November 2022.
I am responsible for leading on the HR strategy for the Trust, including delivering on safer recruitment, advising on complex employee situations and supporting staff engagement and wellbeing.
Having started at CBS as a part-time data manager, to fit around my children, I then progressed to a full time Exams Officer at CGS.
I joined the Learning Development Department at Coombe Girls’ School in 2022 and have loved every minute since. I am passionate about helping our students achieve their best and enjoy their time at secondary school!
