Cobham was originally named Fendalton Intermediate. However, there was confusion between the school and Fendalton Open Air School, so the governor-general of New Zealand, Viscount Cobham, allowed Cobham to use his name. At the end of term 1 in 2011 long running principal Trevor Beaton left Cobham Intermediate to retire. Scott Thelning from Mt. Pleasant School took over as principal in Term 3 2011.
Cobham Intermediate School has four main values which are Respectful – Responsible – Resilient – Positive
Cobham is currently the largest intermediate school in the South Island and has a total attendance of 621 students. It is known all around New Zealand as a prosperous school in cultural, academic and sporting events. For example, in 2005, Cobham won the Cantamath competition (a mathematics competition for schools around the Canterbury Region) in both the year 7 and 8 competition. Many musicians and singers from this school participate in the Lions Primary School Music Festival (A series of concerts for primary and intermediate schools around Canterbury) This school is also advanced in new technology and electronics.
