If your child is aiming high, then a community initiative launched by Cumnor House Sussex might be just what you’re looking for. The school is offering two fully-funded bursary places covering the full cost of a child’s education from Year 4 (age 8+) through to Year 8 (age 13+) and thereafter to Year 13 (age 18) at one of Cumnor’s senior independent school partners.
The bursaries are means-tested and are for children who are academically gifted or show particular potential in sport, music, drama, art or DT. Applicants must currently attend state primary school. The two places are available to children due to start Year 4 in September 2017 and the deadline for applications is 30th April 2017.
The selection process involves completing a means-testing Bursary and Registration form. Children selected will then be invited to attend an ‘experience day’ at Cumnor during which they will be interviewed, undergo some academic tests and, as appropriate, be given the opportunity to show their talents in art, music, drama and sport. The parent or parents will be visited with a view to ensuring that on-going support is in place for the family as a whole. Places will then be offered depending on the particular degree of promise shown by children.
Any family interested in this opportunity is encouraged to contact Cecilia Desmond, Registrar on: 01825 792 006 or [email protected] To find out more about Cumnor House Sussex visit our website: www.cumnor.co.uk.
