Welcome to Cumnor House School
Cumnor House is a small group of independent educational establishments for children from aged 2 up to 13 years.
The Cumnor journey starts at one of our two outstanding ‘Treetops’ nurseries (based in South Croydon and Purley) for children aged 2 to 4 years old. At reception age (4+) children move into one of our two single-sex Preparatory Schools, Cumnor House School for Boys, in South Croydon (for boys aged 4 to 13), or Cumnor House School for Girls in Purley (for girls aged 4 to 11).
Read ‘Why Choose Cumnor’ to find out what makes the Cumnor journey and the Cumnor House ethos so popular, respected and successful.
