Please join us for our Virtual Open Morning on Saturday 6 February, 10am - 12pm.

Register here.

Thank you for your interest in Elmhurst School for Boys. Whilst the world may have temporarily stopped, planning for your child's education and development should not, so we are delighted to welcome you virtually to our school.

Due to current UK Government guidelines, we are unfortunately not able to welcome prospective families to the school. However, during the school closure period, we have ensured a virtual admissions process is in place to provide families who are considering Elmhurst School with the information they need.

We hope that our website, videos, photos and prospectus give you a flavour of what Elmhurst School has to offer. We would also encourage you to follow our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram as well as our YouTube channel, as these are excellent ways of getting a feel for our school during this period.

We will be delighted to welcome you to the school as soon as we possibly can, but for now, please see our vitually admissions process below.


Make an Enquiry

We invite you to contact our Marketing & Admissions Manager, Emma, on or via our enquiry form. Emma will then send you our online prospectus, time slots for booking a meeting with our Headteacher, Mr Padfield, and discuss the next steps in our admissions process. She will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have at this stage.

Virtual Meeting with the Head

Once you have made an enquiry, we will invite you to video call with the Headteacher, Mr Padfield. In the meeting, you will be able to discuss the needs of your child and ask questions about how Elmhurst School can help nurture and develop your child's talents and abilities. Depending on which year group your child would be joining, we will also ensure you meet relevant members of our school virtually.

Registration and Assessment

Following a meeting with the Headteacher, we will invite you to complete a school registration form, as well as paying a registration fee of £50.

For children who are joining Early Years, we would ask for a contact at your child's current school or nursery. For pupils who are joining the school in Year 1 to 6, we will ask for a recent school report and a reference from your child's current school, and the children will also undergo an online assessment so that we understand their specific and individual needs. 

Offer and Acceptance

Once we have reviewed the information provided, we will be able to confirm whether we are able to offer a place for your child. We will then send a formal offer letter together with our Terms and Conditions, which you will need to sign and agree to in order to accept a place.

We are delighted that you are consideirng Elmhurst as a potential school for your child and we look forward to meeting you.
