Elmhurst School for Boys


Our Reception classes encourage a love of learning from an early age. Our small class sizes mean that we treat every boy as an individual and our dynamic and creative curriculum ensures that each pupil achieves their full potential.

We follow the Read Write Inc. Scheme to introduce phonic sounds in Reception. This also supports the development of handwriting and letter formation. We also use the Jolly Phonics scheme to support our phonics learning. The boys develop their Maths skills through a range of activities on a daily basis. 

Reception benefit from specialist teaching in Music, French and Computer Science and enjoy PE lessons twice a week, as well as Swimming in the Summer term. There is also plenty of opportunity for outdoor learning and exploration of the natural environment, through regular Forest School sessions.

Our buddy system pairs each Reception pupil with a Year 6 boy, who will help them to settle into school routines quickly and happily.

Our Wraparound Care allows boys to be safely looked after from 7.30am until 6.30pm, whilst our Holiday Club provides many new opportunities for the boys.
