Elmhurst School for Boys

Individual creativity and expression of ideas are valued and encouraged at Elmhurst and the boys in each year group enjoy regular Art lessons.

Music and drama also play an important part in our broad curriculum and all boys have the opportunity of speaking and performing regularly in school assemblies, as well as appearing on stage in front of an audience of parents, helping to develop their self-confidence and the ability to work in a team. Elmhurst also holds an annual House Music Competition that the boys are invited to take part in.

There are three school choirs (for different age groups) who all take part in public performances and are involved in local events, including the Coulsdon and Purley Festivals.

Elmhurst’s Senior Choir, and award-winning Recorder Ensemble, are regular performers at The Children’s Trust annual concert at St John’s Smith Square - one of the country’s top music venues.

We have an active school orchestra, which performs at the annual carol concert at a local church and we have a year-end concert which is usually held at Whitgift School. There is opportunity at our Saturday morning music school for boys of seven plus to learn individual instruments such as piano, drums, violin, flute, clarinet and cello taught by peripatetic staff.

We recently introduced termly Music Workshops for Years 3-6 which are designed to teach the boys about World Music using traditional instruments from across the world.
