Guest Blog: Tom and Joshua, Year 6

As you know, all children in Year 6 prepare for many exams that can be life-changing.

Before our exams we felt quite anxious; I mean, come on we are 10-11-year-old boys going through a process that could change the next few years our lives.

Preparation was tough for all of us, but it certainly paid off. Way back in Year 5, the teachers at Elmhurst started to run booster sessions, where we would come in early 2 days of the week for additional Maths and English revision. Although it was tough to wake up early, this support gave us the confidence that is required as well as the knowledge we needed to succeed. We have always felt supported at Elmhurst School, with all our teachers giving us positive words of advice and challenging us to make sure we excelled in every area of the curriculum.                                                                                     

We took exams for many schools including Trinity, Whitgift, Dulwich College and Wilsons, amongst others. We hope we have done ourselves proud in these exams and that we get accepted into one of these wonderful schools. Now our exams and interviews are over, we all feel very relieved. We are grateful for the support given to us by everyone at Elmhurst, and now we are looking forward to lots of fun and creative lessons and opportunities, like Stride and our upcoming Residential.
