ABOUT Cumnor House School for Boys, South Croydon, UK
Cumnor House School for Boys is an independent school which educates boys aged 2-13 years in South Croydon.
We are a school which promotes and celebrates achievement in sport, music and the arts at all levels. A typical Cumnor House day is one of purposeful industry, and we make no apology for aspiring to academic rigour and excellence.
Cumnor House School for Boys, founded in 1931, continues a long held tradition of providing the boys in our charge with a rounded education: combining academic focus with sporting and artistic opportunities.
We challenge boys to aspire to high academic standards, and we are very proud of our record of scholarship examination success to leading HMC schools, the Whitgift Foundation Schools and local grammar schools.
“Incurable mavericks would be exhausted by the ebullient enthusiasm and team spirit here. But make no mistake, this is boys’ education at its best.”
The Good Schools Guide
“Teaching is good overall and often excellent, providing strong support for pupils’ learning. It successfully prepares boys for their senior schools. The pupils’ personal development is excellent. Boys are confident and self-aware, and show sensitive responses to spiritual and moral situations.”
Independent School Inspectorate, December 2010
We are proud of our students’ long-standing record of scholarship and examination success at both 11+ and 13+ to leading HMC (Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference) schools (such as Westminster, Charterhouse and Tonbridge), the Whitgift Foundation Schools and local grammar schools.
Daniel was appointed Headmaster of Cumnor House School for Boys in September 2017.
He wants the boys at Cumnor to move away from their comfort zone and take risks, for when they do he believes the results can be spectacular. Daniel also wants them to really enjoy their time at prep school, before the extreme pressures they may encounter in their senior schools and beyond.
