Our staff are passionate about developing students' academic progress and emotional wellbeing. Our Wellbeing Champion leads on intiatives at staff level, keeping the wellbeing agenda at the fore.
We deliver a well-rounded programme of PSHE which takes into account the increasing pressures on young people, ensuring our students are confident, compassionate and capable of being their 'best selves'.
We encourage and challenge our children to embrace the opportunity for wider enrichment beyond the curriculum and offer a wide range of after school clubs designed to add breadth and the chance to learn new skills.
We engage with dedicated awareness days through the school year that allow space for our students (and parents) to focus on positive social, emotional and physical health.
Supporting character education in our schools.
Our character education programme is intended to stretch and grow our students by exposing them to new experiences and helping them develop existing interests. Critical to this programme is enabling students to develop new perspectives, build skills and acquire the ability to ‘bounce back’ from adversity.
Character virtues (such as endeavour, belief and courage) that underpin our ethos at Cumnor House positively galvanize our school community and help create a culture of understanding, integrity, compassion and empathy for others.
Our programme includes core activities such as residentials, school trips, public speaking and life skills with the emergency services, through to voluntary activities such as public speaking, charity fundraising and citizenship work. These sit alongside a rich programme of after-school extra-curricular clubs that range from swimming, languages, LAMDA and photography to Current Affairs, LEGO, mindfulness and story clubs.
