There are three types of bursaries available from the School;

  • Foundation Scholarships for children who currently attend state school and are academically gifted or show outstanding potential in sport, music, art, DT or drama;
  • Hardship Assistance for parents in times of unforeseen financial hardship; and
  • Music Awards: the school encourages musical excellence by contributing to music lesson fees for those children who have gained distinction at Grade 4 or a pass at Grade 5 (piano and string instruments) or a pass at Grade 5 (brass, wind instruments, drums and vocal). Children achieving these grades will have their tuition paid by the school for up to two instruments, at the recommended rate, provided they are taught at the school.  The Headmaster may also give discretionary music awards to children in Y3, Y4, and Y5.  These awards will be reviewed annually.

Financial support in the form of means-tested fee assistance is available for parents who, for some unexpected reason, are unable to afford the standard fees. To receive means-tested fee assistance, parents will have to demonstrate a genuine need for financial assistance. The Governors set the funds available for fee assistance based on the financial health of the School and the approved charitable benefit. Approved fee assistance and funds available to support it are reviewed by the Governors on a termly basis.

Cumnor House Sussex supports the School Fees Trust Scheme. It is a sad fact that every year over 1,000 pupils across the country suffer the bereavement of one of their parents, but fortunately participation in this scheme will at least enable them to stay in the school of their choice.
