Coloma Convent Girls’ School sits in extensive grounds on the edge of the Addington Hills. Built in 1965 by the Daughters of Mary and Joseph it continues to grow not only in helping girls to achieve their maximum potential in academic and vocational pursuits but also in the provision of the facilities to help them in those twin aims.
Since the school was built a significant number of additional facilities have been added, reflecting the ever modernising and increasingly technological world in which we live. As part of our Open Day events Coloma pupils lead tours of the Coloma site for prospective Lower School and 6th Form students and parents which includes:
- Purpose built 6th Form Block in its own setting within the grounds
- The School Chapel

In addition to the main library, Coloma also has a well-resourced and up to date Careers Library with a variety of software packages available to all students to assist them in exploring and managing decisions about future educational pathways and career options.
