Cornerstone Free School

We are a team of parents and professionals from many different walks of life, pursuing an exciting opportunity to provide an outstanding SECONDARY education facility, with a Christian ethos, for boys and girls in Huntingdonshire.

We believe in…

  • Inspirational education for individuals
  • Enterprise as the key to building experience and character
  • Christian values underpinning everything

“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”.

Where will the school be?

We are looking at sites in Mid and East Cambridgeshire, with a catchment covering parts of Huntingdonshire, Fenland and East Cambridgeshire. We currently have a few options under investigation and if our school proposal is accepted, the DfE will secure the most suitable school site. We aim to make good use of transport links to enable students to attend from further away, and this includes the guided bus way.

When will the school open?

The Free School application is due for submission to the DfE in September 2019. If successful, we plan to open the school in September 2022.

Who is the school for?

A co-educational school for students aged 11-16. For all abilities and all backgrounds.

I am not a Christian but I totally buy into this ethos as it gives my children the discipline they need to succeed and I’m really excited that there might be a way to get the love back into their learning. There is too much pressure at the moment and no space to grow as individuals.

Local prospective parent

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
