"Choosing the right school for your child is not an easy process and you will want to be sure that the decision you reach will meet their present and future needs.
Typically, a Cumnor House day for all our children from the nursery upwards is one of purposeful industry, allied to lots of laughter and fun. We make no apology for aspiring to high academic standards, nor should we, and we are unashamedly proud of our record of scholarship and examination success to leading HMC schools, the Whitgift Foundation Schools and local grammar schools.
First and foremost, though, we subscribe to those timeless values that embrace good manners, courtesy, self-respect, respect for others and a sense of duty and responsibility. We then challenge our children to move away from their comfort zone and to take risks in order to discover that the seemingly impossible can in fact be achieved.
And yet, underpinning all this, we believe that children should be allowed to enjoy their childhood away from the pressures they may encounter later at senior school and beyond. Importantly, therefore, we are not an academic ‘hot-house', rather we are an all-round school that also promotes and celebrates achievement in sport, music and the arts at all levels. Prep School days really are the best of all!
We regard it as a great privilege to have the responsibility of helping to shape the lives of the children in our care. If your child is already at the school, thank you for entrusting us with the job. If you are considering Cumnor House for your child, this website should serve to provide you with a brief insight of what we offer but do then come along and meet the boys, girls and their teachers to discover more; you will be most welcome."
