Located in the exclusive Webb Estate, Purley, Cumnor House School for Girls provides an enriching all round education, where talent and potential are recognised and nurtured and where all successes are celebrated. We are founded on a commitment of academic excellence and moral integrity and our aim is to prepare girls to achieve entry into leading Independent and local Grammar Senior Schools.

We treat each pupil as an individual, all of whom have different strengths, aspirations and dreams. Our school offers outstanding teaching in a nurturing and caring environment, and our girls are brimming with enthusiasm and confidence to succeed in all of their future endeavours.

The genuine happiness of a Cumnor girl is palpable, with proven evidence that not only are they learning well, but are also forming friendships and experiencing a safe and nurturing environment where they can be themselves and perform at their best.

Our team of dedicated and professional staff enable the girls to achieve success both in and out of the classroom by providing them with the learning tools to achieve and by instilling a love of learning. We have created an enriching curriculum, focusing on the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics combined with Music, the Arts, and Sports.

We pride ourselves on our music, drama and arts curriculum, with all girls in Year 3 receiving free lessons with a variety of instruments. Our choir and orchestra have all experienced formal and informal concerts and perform regularly within the local community. Our dedicated music, drama and arts studios, give our pupils the opportunity to develop their confidence, teamwork and performance skills with annual drama productions, concerts and art exhibitions. As part of the ISA, we compete both regionally and nationally in sport, achieving huge successes.

At Cumnor House School for Girls, we are very proud of our scholarship record and the offers our girls receive from their first choice senior schools. As a preparatory school, we ensure that the girls are ready for their onward journey to senior school, ensuring that their journey from Reception through to Year 6 has been a happy and valuable experience that prepares them for their future.


Our Open Mornings and personal tours run throughout the year. We provide taster days for registered applicants to give your child the opportunity to experience 'Life at Cumnor', this will take the form of classroom lessons, sport, music and an informal meeting with the Head.
