Headmaster's Welcome

We challenge boys to aspire to high academic standards, and we are very proud of our record of scholarship and examination success .

Independent School Croydon

“Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make and you will want to be sure that the school will meet their present and future needs.”

Typically, a Cumnor House day for all our children from the nursery upwards is one of academic focus, allied to a great deal of laughter and fun.  We challenge boys to aspire to high academic standards, and we are very proud of our record of scholarship and examination success to leading HMC schools, the Whitgift Foundation Schools and local grammar schools.  We also subscribe to what I feel are important timeless values such as good manners, courtesy, self-respect, respect for others, and a sense of duty and responsibility within the community.  I want the boys to move away from their comfort zone and take risks, for when they do the results can be spectacular. I also want them to really enjoy their time at prep school, before the extreme pressures they may encounter in their senior schools and beyond.

Importantly, we focus on an all-round education that promotes and celebrates achievement in sport, music and the arts at all levels. I want the boys to be involved in as many activities as possible both in and outside the classroom.  Opportunities for achievement are provided for all children, with a curriculum that is both broad and balanced.  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 our 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.  Do then come along and meet the pupils and their teachers to discover more; you will always be most welcome.
