Cornerstone Free School

Charles Spurgeon Schools , from the founders of Fulham Boys School, is supporting us to bring our vision of an exceptional co-educational school to Huntingdonshire which, modelled on the independent sector and based on a Christian foundation, will offer a unique educational experience based on the following THREE CORE PILLARS that got Fulham Boys School their recognition as a beacon of educational excellence in this year’s Parliamentary Review:

An EXCEPTIONAL education…

We have a vision for a school where academic excellence is founded on inspirational teaching that expands children’s horizons. Our school will provide a unique curriculum, grounding pupils with a comprehensive knowledge base to enable them to maximise their academic potential.

A caring community with a CHRISTIAN ethos…

Through the application of our Christian values, our School will nurture the whole person, encouraging mutual respect and positive relationships among all members of the school community. Our school will provide dedicated, supportive pastoral care matched with high standards of discipline and behaviour, encouraging an environment where pupils of all backgrounds are able to flourish. Our school will do all this with a diverse and inclusive student body, ensuring that our unique education is accessible to all and leaves no child behind. 

‘ENTERPRISE’ at the heart of the curriculum…

Our vision is to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and character to flourish as socially responsible and principled adults. We will encourage pupils to debate openly, think critically and reason logically, building vital skills that will equip them to contribute to society for the rest of their lives. To facilitate this aim, enterprise will be a core element across all curriculum areas, preparing pupils for life in the real world with personal, business and social enterprise skills.

Crucially, in order to take this vision forward, we need to demonstrate a demand for a school like this, and particularly expressions of interest from parents whose children would potentially attend such a school.

“In Fulham Boys School, my son has not only excelled academically, but he is growing into a well rounded young man”.

“I’d have enrolled my son on the spot if I could”.

I am really excited about the prospect of the new Cornerstone Free School. I truly believe in, and am wholly committed to, The Fulham Boys School brand of education, and believe all pupils should have access to the highest standards of education, irrespective of their background.

Our aim is for all our schools, including Cornerstone, to be among the best schools in the country – state or private. Parents should have a real choice in the type of school they want for their children and I imagine, like The Fulham Boys School, Cornerstone Free School will prove very popular and heavily oversubscribed.

We have been impressed by the local team’s rigour, broad range of abilities, and commitment to academic excellence. We look forward to working with them over the next few years in establishing a school that is built upon the Christian faith, nurtures enterprise and brings out the best in boys and girls, serving Huntingdonshire for many generations to come

This is an opportunity that cannot be missed. Children need to be nurtured in every area of their development and this proposal offers exactly that. Combined with a Christian ethos that encourages selflessness, something completely missing in society today.
