About Us

The true mark of a school is what lies within. Welcome to our Nurseries, Boys’ and Girls' Prep School.

At Cumnor House School, we have a proud tradition of providing an exceptional education to boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 13. However, we believe that it’s not just our pupil’s educational success that sets us apart from the rest.

As part of our aim to be recognised as the best private school in Surrey, we work extremely hard on ensuring that every pupil not only receives the highest quality of teaching but also has new experiences and enjoys themselves throughout their time at Cumnor House. We achieve this by instilling a specific set of values and making sure that everything is done ‘The Cumnor Way’.

To find out more about how things work here at Cumnor House School, you can request a prospectus today, or book a visit to our school.
