Girls’ School

Cumnor House School for Girls is unique as an ISA preparatory school in the Croydon area. We accept girls from four to eleven years, with main entry years at ages four (Reception) and seven (Year 3).

We provide a wide-ranging education both within and outside the classroom, whilst thoroughly preparing girls for the entrance requirements of their senior schools.

Our girls leave with a confidence, an enthusiasm for participation and an appetite for learning and achievement that are the hallmarks of a good preparatory school, giving them the best possible foundation for the future.

At Cumnor House School for Girls we provide an enriching and fulfilling all-round education, where talent and potential are recognised and nurtured and all successes are celebrated.

We are founded on a commitment to academic excellence and moral integrity. We have high expectations of our girls and set high standards. Our team of dedicated and professional staff enable the girls to achieve success both in and out of the classroom by providing them with the learning tools to achieve and by instilling a love of learning.

Alongside the intellectual stimulus, Cumnor House School for Girls offers an ever-growing spectrum of opportunities involving sport, music and drama.

We are very proud of the offers our girls receive from their first choice senior schools, not to mention the number of scholarships that this includes. As a preparatory school, we ensure that the girls are ready for their onward journey to senior school, ensuring that their journey from Reception through to Year 6 has been a happy and valuable experience that prepares them for their future.
