Schools are places that bring people together and at Elmhurst School for Boys, we recognise that the people who work for us are fundamental in enabling us to provide an outstanding learning experience for every pupil we teach. We are fortunate to be part of the Bellevue family of schools and benefit from continuing professional development opportunities and experiences that are unlikely to be matched by stand-alone independent schools.

If you would like to be part of a well-resourced, caring school community that is committed to working in partnership with our parents and with an unyielding determination to do its very best for every boy, then we would love to hear from you.
