Have you ever thought of educating your child at a private school, but discounted the idea because of the cost?  

At Cumnor House Sussex, an independent school based in Danehill, two free places are available to children currently in Year 3 at a Sussex Primary School.  

The opportunity covers the entire cost of a child’s education at private school for ten years, from the age of 8 to 18, and includes activities such as sport, music, art and DT, as well as school uniform and school trips.  

To be eligible to apply, your child should be performing near the top of their class, and the places will be offered to children from families who could never afford to pay for an independent school education.  

Successful applicants join Cumnor House Sussex at the age of 8 (in Year 4) through to the age of 13 (Year 8) after which they will move on to one of Cumnor’s 16 independent senior school partners, subject to meeting the school’s entry criteria, where they remain until the age of 18.  

“We have seven Foundation Scholars already thriving within our school community,” comments Fergus Llewellyn, Cumnor’s Headmaster.  “Our first Foundation Scholar will be joining Hurstpierpoint College in September 2021 – a very exciting moment for us all.”

The Cumnor House Sussex motto – ‘Aim High, Be Kind, Dare to be Different’ – sits at the heart of our School and, combined with a teaching environment and facilities that demand excellence and an unrivalled breadth of offer, is what makes Cumnor unique.

Applications are now open until Friday 16th April 2021. Please contact Cecilia, our Registrar on: 01825 792 006 or and visit our website:
