The celebration of childhood at The Elms leads to an education which ensures children are helped to grow into the young people they are destined to be. We believe in creating a culture and an environment where they can truly explore their potential.

Walking through the gates of The Elms was for me like stepping back into the childhood I remember. The boys and girls were enjoying their surroundings, laughing and running about, with not a soul looking at a screen. They were simply enjoying their time with friends who will doubtless be friends for life.

We are proud that children at the Elms are driven, ambitious and aspirational. We are fortunate to be based in a beautiful rural location, where children can play in trees, learn the joy of being guardians on our farm, or learn to control their anxiety as they perform on stage or sit on a pony for the first time. I believe that this all contributes to a successful and happy education.

Kind children support each other and give others implicit permission to explore potential and try without fear of failure. Small classes mean the children are known as individuals and lessons are taught in ways that excite the children and leave them wanting more. By the time they are ready to leave us they are prepared to go to the school we help parents select for them. When they arrive at their new schools, they will be the children who are chomping at the bit.

With 41% of our 2020 cohort gaining scholarships to senior schools, and all children gaining entrance to their chosen schools, we feels that The Elms provides good value. I look forward to you coming and seeing us, as this is the only way to really understand what The Elms can offer your family.
