Welcome to Elmhurst School
Hello, I am Charles South and I am delighted to welcome you to the Elmhurst School for Boys’ website. I am very privileged to lead this wonderful ‘family’ school and I am very proud of all our boys’ fantastic achievements, many of which you will find described on this site.
Aims & Objectives
Elmhurst caters for boys aged 4-11 and concentrates on raising individual levels of attainment to the extent that boys will have the best possible chance of doing themselves justice in competitive entrance examinations.
Excellence in Everything
The Elmhurst curriculum incorporates the National Curriculum, which is followed throughout the school. However, the National Curriculum is seen only as a minimum curriculum and our own syllabus and schemes of work are considerably more extensive.
Learning is about more than just academic studies, we look to develop the boys as young men. Having ‘Life Experiences’ equips the boys with the skills they will need to tackle any obstacle that confronts them in the future.
The Elmhurst Friends’ Association was formed in September 1984 and all parents are automatically members of this Association, whose aim is specifically to organise social events and fund raising activities. Fundraising events take place on a regular basis.
Focussing on Secondary Schools
Which School your son moves on to is of major importance to all parents, we aim to help you make the right decision for your son. By helping him reach his full potential we will help him move on to the School of his choice.
