Welcome Back!

Elmhurst School for Boys

20th January 2017 | Headmaster's Blog

A belated Happy New Year to you all and a warm welcome back to Elmhurst.

It's been a busy start to the Spring term in particular for our Year 6 boys with their exams and subsequent interviews for secondary schools.  We are extremely proud of how our year 6 boys have progressed and matured ready for that move into the next stage of their education.  We wish them all every success with their chosen schools and of course I am sure all you Parents will breathe a sigh of relief !

On another note the Lower School had and interesting assembly about British Values this week led by Mrs Skinner. OFSTED states these to be:

  • Democracy.
  • The rule of law.
  • Individual liberty.
  • Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

In a world of uncertainty it was so refreshing to hear the boys' individual interpretation of these values. We reflected on what 'respect' meant and how lucky we are at Elmhurst to have so many different faiths, race and ethnic groups of people coming together to celebrate being one! We have also been exploring the importance of manners  when greeting people, asking how they are, holding the door open for each other, being polite at mealtimes and apologising if we do something rude by accident! William Horman  (b.1440-d.1535) had as his school motto at Winchester College 'Manners Maketh Man' and this is still as relevant today as it was then.
