The Curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum Plus, where our pupils work ahead of the age-related expectations. From a young age, they are taught by specialist teachers in Music, Spanish, games, and swimming as well as Mandarin from Year 3. As they reach the Upper School, we continue to introduce specialist teachers in all subjects.

Sports & the Arts

The annual school production casts over 70 pupils and is performed at a local theatre. We also host an annual art exhibition, and our games teams have secured victories in both regional and national competitions. We proudly rank among the top 50 schools for cricket in the country.

Pastoral Care

 This is the place where children learn to be empathetic, have self-belief, be brave, do their utmost with earnestness, and build strong moral principles. Our guiding values of compassion, belief, courage, endeavour, and integrity are embedded throughout the school from Kindergarten to Year 8. Our teachers pride themselves on putting the wellbeing of the child first. With exceptional class and form teachers, pupils are happy and excited to come into school.

Recent Scholarships

30 scholarships were secured this year to independent senior schools.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

My philosophy closely aligns with our school values and is one of compassion and kindness. All pupils need to know that they are valued, and we care for them by supporting their pastoral and academic needs, fostering an exciting and inspiring environment in which they will thrive. Everyone at Cumnor is part of the special community and the sense of belonging is important. 

Outstanding Characteristics

We have a long tradition of excellent sport and music. With our excellent facilities, including the sports ground, our pupils excel in football, rugby, and cricket. In the swimming pool, Cumnor House has been Croydon Schools’ winners for 13 years in a row and are National Champions. Other facilities include a DT workshop, an art room, a science lab, and Music House.
