Online Open Evening – Welcome!

We look forward to showing you what makes Coombe Dean so unique and amazing!

We are proud of the great teaching that takes place here and of the excellent behaviour of our students.  

Learning at Coombe Dean is both challenging and rewarding. We offer a unique place for young people to flourish: a modern, spacious and wonderfully green site.  This dynamic and healthy environment is the perfect place to learn and to enjoy taking part in clubs and socialising with friends.

On this page, you can meet our wonderful students and staff and go behind the scenes at Coombe Dean in our virtual open evening video.  Follow our Year 7 students as they get to know their new school; hear from me as Headteacher; learn about how we are rising to the challenges of the new school year, and get close up with science, PE, art and outdoor learning.  It’s a great way to experience the unique ethos and atmosphere in our extraordinary school – virtually.

We hope you will be inspired to find out more…
