Elmhurst School Open Days

Come and see us

A successful, ambitious prep school, Elmhurst has a strong sense of togetherness and places considerable importance on working in partnership with our pupils and parents. The local community is important to us and we enjoy great links with local organisations and senior schools alike, as well as maintaining a long term link with an international charitable organisation.

Whilst the school’s roots are over 150 years old, as we move to a coeducational provision, we continue to live by the values of curiosity, bravery, determination, respect and kindness that reflect Elmhurst’s heart. 

The best way to decide if Elmhurst School is right for your child is to come and visit it. We offer Open Mornings and Stay and Plays, as well as Personal Tours. Throughout the year, we offer prospective parents the chance to be taken around the school to view our facilities, have the opportunity to meet the staff and have an informal discussion with Mrs Sara Marriott, our Head. You’ll be able to see the school in action and discover why an Elmhurst education is the right choice for your child. For more information email marketing@elmhurstschool.net 

If you are unable to attend this session, we hold regular events throughout the year or alternatively, please contact our admissions team on 020 8688 0661 or email admissions@elmhurstschool.net to arrange a private visit that suits your time.

Stay and Play Events

At Elmhurst, Mrs King and the Little Elms team offer Stay and Play events throughout the year. This gives parents the chance to engage with your child’s learning, explore our educational environment and connect with other parents within our school community. Parents are welcome to attend more than once. Light refreshments are provided.

To book your place or find out more information please email marketing@elmhurstschool.net. 

Our next Stay and Play will be on Friday 26th April 2024 at 9:30-10:30am.  It will be a themed event on Exploring Colour. The fee for this session is £3 per child. Click here to sign up. Payment details are on the form.
