Head’s Blog: 11+ Success for Year 6

Elmhurst School for Boys has built its reputation on 11+ successes for both Grammar School and local independent school entrance exams. This academic year will continue to build on the reputation with the outstanding results the boys have achieved in an extremely competitive environment. 

15 Academic Scholarships were offered from Trinity, Whitgift, King’s College, Wimbledon, Cedars, Epsom College, Royal Russell and City of London. 2 Drama Scholarships, one from Trinity and one from Cedars and a Music Scholarship was awarded to one of our boys from Trinity. 8 boys secured at least 1 Grammar School place.

Although we do not have the final destinations of each and every boy confirmed, it is very clear that Elmhurst Boys have achieved some fantastic results this year. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the boys in gaining their secondary school places and would also like to outline the preparation for these examinations delivered by the amazing Elmhurst teachers.

Arguably, preparation for 11+ starts in Little Elms as the 4C’s (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity) are the cornerstones to the curriculum and provide the boys with the cognitive skills and characteristics to prepare them for the demands of 21st century life. The program of specific and specialised preparation for 11+ may be found on our website
