Back To School

For more details on how we are preparing for a safe return to school this September, read our Back to School Guide.

Cumnor House School for Girls and Boys is a place where your child will aspire to be the best they can be. We help every child build on their strengths, to believe in themselves, to be distinctive and to challenge themselves with high expectations. Our approach empowers children to be leaders and provides an educational standard that ensures children are well prepared for their future.

PERSONALISED APPROACH TO LEARNING

Our personalised programme of education enables all children to reach their potential and achieve high standards of academic attainment.
