The Elms provides the setting for a truly inspirational start in life.

From the youngest in the Montessori Early Years right through to those leaving us in year eight, we share Goethe's belief that 'instruction does much, but encouragement everything'.

The Elms' spirit encourages our children to make the very best of life; to embrace every opportunity with enthusiasm and 100% effort, be it in the classroom, on the sports' field, in the theatre, the art room or on the farm.

Children have only one childhood. It is our mission to ensure those childhoods are a time of challenge and inspiration, of opportunity, fun and fulfilment. It is also our mission to nurture children that are polite, thoughtful and respectful of the contribution made by others.
