The Cumnor Foundation
The Cumnor Foundation was launched in 2015 to help unlock the potential of gifted children from less privileged families. There are now five fully funded Foundation Scholars from Sussex thriving within our School community.
Our Foundation programme is unique – in offering gifted children access to a free independent school education for ten years, from the age of 8 to 18. Successful Foundation Scholars join Cumnor House Sussex from state school on a 100% scholarship at the age of 8. They remain with us until the age of 13 when they move on to one of our 13 independent Senior School partners, also on a 100% scholarship, to complete their school education.
By September 2021, we aim to have 20 Foundation Scholars integrated within our school community, thereby building a community with greater diversity and mix.
We are indebted to our community of existing parents, Old Cumnorians and Old Cumnorian parents, for their invaluable support. Donations at every level are welcome however large or small they might be. Every donation is significant and is your gift to another child’s future.
