Our academics are outstanding but we believe that we are educating a whole person so we offer a broad curriculum and place emphasis on developing character and skills for the future.
Games & the Arts
Cumnor girls love their sport, developing skills and competing. Music and Drama play a key part of our curriculum with opportunities to shine on stage. Pupils’ beautiful artwork is displayed around the school inspiring others.
Pastoral care is embedded in all that we do at Cumnor, every teacher knows every child whether they teach them or not. Teachers take the time to know each child as an individual, whether that is in form time, in the playground or over lunch. As a result, our girls are happy, confident and feel valued, safe and secure.
Every year many girls achieve scholarships to outstanding senior schools.
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.
Happy, confident learners with outstanding academics and results. A true family and community ethos with a breadth of opportunity both in and out of the classroom. We are a forward-thinking and innovative preparatory school with traditional values where each pupil is recognised for who they are.
