Open Days

Being brave

Elmhurst is a successful, ambitious school that retains a strong sense of community and partnership. The values of curiosity, bravery, determination, respect and kindness are the ones that we live by.

Recent changes in the local education landscape have created a need for nurturing academically rigorous 11+ preparation to include girls. I am delighted to announce, from September 2024, Elmhurst will open its doors to girls throughout the school. 

From Nursery to Year 3 the school will become coeducational. The boys classes in current year 3, 4 and 5 will remain boys only for their duration at the school. By September 2027, the school will be fully coeducational. It is also our intention to open a second Nursery room during this academic year. We will offer places to girls in Little Elms as soon as possible.

Join us for our next Open Morning on Friday 2nd February between 9.30am and 12. 

Visiting Elmhurst is the best way to decide if it is the right school for your child. Throughout the year we offer tours to prospective parents with our Admissions Manager, just get in touch with a time and date that is convenient for you. See the school in action, speak with the Head and discover why an Elmhurst education is the right choice for your child. For more information email marketing@elmhurstschool.net 

We also hold regular mini Open Mornings and our Head, Mrs Marriott, is also happy to speak directly to prospective parents either on the phone, via an online meeting or through an organised tour.

To make arrangements for a visit or meeting or if you have any further queries or questions about our admissions procedure, please contact our Admissions Manager, on:

Stay and Play Events

At Elmhurst, Mrs King and the Little Elms team will offer stay and play events throughout the year, giving you the chance to engage with your child’s learning, explore our educational environment, and connect with other parents within our school community. The session is free and refreshments will be provided. Join us on Friday 19th January 2024 from 9.30am to 10.30am. For more information email marketing@elmhurstschool.net.
