Cumnor House Sussex Welcomes New Head

From September 2020, Cumnor would like to give a very warm welcome to the new Headmaster, Fergus Llewellyn, and his wife, Tamsyn and their three children.


Fergus was previously Headmaster of the renowned St Andrew’s Prep School, Turi, Kenya, where he has been since August 2015. Prior to that, he was at Cheltenham College for 10 years, serving as Housemaster and Head of English and Drama. Earlier in his career, he was at Kings Bruton and Haslemere Preparatory School. Fergus is a product of Sherborne School and graduate of the University of London with a BA (Hons) in English.


Mr Llewellyn comments “Tamsyn and I are very excited about the prospect of building on the hugely successful Cumnor ethos, outstanding all-round education and community, whilst ensuring that Cumnor pupils are prepared for the challenges of 2020s and beyond. We are delighted to be at the centre of its exciting future”.


Mr James Tanner, Chair of the Board of Governors for Cumnor House Sussex, said, “I’m delighted we have such an inspiring Headmaster to lead Cumnor on the next stage of its journey. In Fergus the Board have found an educational professional remarkably well armed to further build the Cumnor community”.


Cumnor bid its final ‘farewell’ to Christian and Belinda Heinrich after 19 years as Headmaster and wife.

The Board of Governors would like to take this opportunity to thank the Heinrichs for the outstanding contribution they have made over the past 19 years. Christian and Belinda will leave a remarkable legacy upon which Cumnor House Sussex can continue to grow and prosper.
