100% Bursaries available at Cumnor House Sussex

100% Bursaries available at Cumnor House Sussex

Two bursary places covering the full cost of a child’s education for ten years, from the age of 8 to 18, are available to children who currently attend state primary school.  The 100% bursaries on offer at Cumnor House Sussex from the age of 8 to 13 continue at one of Cumnor’s thirteen independent senior school partners from the age of 13 to 18 – thereby supporting each child to the end of their school life.

The two bursaries offered each year are means-tested and are awarded to children who excel academically or show particular potential in art, drama, music or sport.   The bursaries are means-tested and children must be about to start Year 4 in September 2018.  The deadline for applications is 30th April 2018.  

The selection process involves completing a means-tested Bursary and Registration form.  Children will then be invited to attend an ‘experience day’ at Cumnor during which they will be interviewed, undergo some academic tests and be given the opportunity to show their talent, as appropriate, in art, music, drama or sport.   The parent or parents will be visited with a view to ensuring that on-going support is in place for the whole family and places will be offered depending on the particular degree of promise shown by each child.

Anyone interested in looking into this opportunity is encouraged to contact Cecilia Desmond, Registrar on: 01825 792 006 or registrar@cumnor.co.uk.  To find out more about Cumnor House Sussex visit our website: www.cumnor.co.uk.
