Cobham Intermediate School is a state intermediate school in the northwestern Christchurch, New Zealand suburb of Bryndwr.

Cobham was originally named Fendalton Intermediate but that caused confusion between 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.
