The Curriculum

Our academics are outstanding, but we firmly believe that we are educating a whole person, so we offer a broad curriculum and place emphasis on developing character and future skills.

Sports & the Arts

Cumnor girls love their sport, continuously developing skills and thriving in local, regional and national competitions. Music and Drama also play a key part in our curriculum, providing pupils with opportunities to learn instruments and to shine on stage. We proudly display pupils’ beautiful artwork around the school, inspiring others.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is embedded in all that we do at Cumnor. Teachers take the time to learn about each child as an individual, whether that is in form time, in the playground, or over lunch. Every teacher knows every child, regardless of whether they teach them in class or not. As a result, our girls are happy, confident, and thriving in an environment where they feel valued, safe, and secure.

Recent Scholarships

Our girls consistently achieve excellent academic results, making superb progress across all areas. They achieve great success in senior school entry, securing a large number of offers and scholarships. These achievements are a result of the support, coaching, and nurturing environment that ensures the girls’ happiness and well-being.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

 First and foremost, I want my pupils to be happy. It is about educating the whole child, equipping them with life skills – this includes self-assuredness, skills of oracy, and self-reflection. I want my girls to be unafraid to think creatively and to be bold enough to share that thinking.

Outstanding Characteristics

We enable girls to realise their potential, equipping them with the skills that they will need for prep school and beyond. They are happy, confident learners who achieve outstanding outcomes. Cumnor offers a breadth of opportunities both within and beyond the classroom. We are a forward-thinking and innovative preparatory school with traditional values, we embrace a true sense of family where everyone belongs. At Cumnor every girl is confident with who she is and what she wants to achieve.
