An Elmhurst Boy

If you want to go to Elmhurst School
You can be the best
You don't have to be cool
If you want to be better than the rest

When you're in Reception
Your quest has just begun
You won't get a rejection
You are far from done

Times mves swiftly, Upper school treats we great
Games,plays, experiments all now part of your day
New experiences, friends and bigger playground you'll meet
In your learning you'll have your say

Year 6 your final year
You've got to pass the test
No longer negatives you need to fear
It is now you have finished your quest
