Two Foundation Scholarships, covering 100% of the cost of a child’s private school education for ten years, from the age of 8 to 18, are available to children currently in Year 3 at state primary school.  

Foundation Scholars join Cumnor House Sussex in Danehill in Year 4 (aged 8) through to Year 8 (aged 13) when they move on to one of Cumnor’s sixteen independent senior school partners, subject to meeting a school’s entry criteria, where they remain until they are 18.

The scholarships are means-tested and awarded to children who excel academically and show potential in art, design technology, drama, music or sport. Two places are available for children starting in Year 4 in September 2020. Applications are open now until 30th April 2020.  

* (The selection process involves completing an ‘Application & Means-Testing Financial Form’.  A full report is requested from the child’s current school, before they are invited to attend an ‘Experience Day’ at Cumnor; when they are interviewed by the Headmaster, work and play alongside their contemporaries, undergo some academic tests and are given the opportunity to show their talent in art, DT, drama, music or sport, as appropriate.)
