Our Vision, Mission and Values

Elmhurst School for Boys


Preparing Boys for the 21st Century


To identify, nurture and celebrate the talents of each and every boy, in an inspiring environment which blends innovation with tradition and successfully prepares them to excel in their future beyond Elmhurst.

Core Values

Our mission is expressed through core values that form the guiding principles of everything we do. At Elmhurst, we aim to:


Nurture our boys and support them through every step of their learning, ensuring they are happy and fullled and that their individual talents are recognised and encouraged.


Inspire our boys by offering a broad and stimulating curriculum, delivered in innovative ways that excite and engage.


Celebrate the unique and natural talents of every boy and equip them with the skills so that each leaves us as a well-rounded individual who is Curious, Caring, Principled, A thinker, A communicator, Resilient and Creative.

School Development Plan

To ensure that we continue to deliver our vision for each of our pupils, our School Development Plan aims to:

2019 - 2021 Priorities

Over the next two years, we shall be focusing on three key areas within our School Development Plan which will support us in bringing our vision to life. The three key areas are:

Building on Success

Pioneering the application of a CPA (Concrete - Pictorial - Abstract) approach to learning across other areas of the curriculum in light of the success that has been achieved in using those principles in our mathematics programme.

Valuing Individuality

Developing pupils’ self-awareness, enhancing their well-being and enabling them to better understand themselves as individuals, their relationships with others and their impact on and place within the wider world.

Extended School Provision

Enhancing our popular wraparound care and extra-curricular provision to ensure all pupils can benefit from structured sessions with a wide range of activities and healthy eating choices at Before and After School Clubs.
