Head’s Blog: Embracing our Virtual School

First and foremost, I hope that in the present circumstances, that you and your family are well and taking care.

On behalf of us all at Elmhurst School, I would like to send sincere thanks and gratitude to those of you who are key workers, who are working so hard to keep everyone safe throughout these unprecedented times. I extend this to the staff at the school, themselves key workers, who have been working hard in providing virtual learning to all of our current students, remotely from their homes.

This week, we are delighted with how the remote learning experience has begun and the interaction between teachers, children and pupils have been very positive. We continue to learn and adapt in this new way of learning to ensure that we are providing our parents and pupils with the highest level of teaching we can provide in these difficult times. 

Continuing with the theme of embracing digital, can I ask that you all follow our social channels to keep up to date with the fantastic online and offline activities that our staff are providing to our pupils. We also encourage you to visit our designated COVID-19 Information Page where you will find up to date information regarding Elmhurst School for Boys. 

I hope that we move on and out of this situation as quickly as possible but in the meantime, I hope that you all take care and look after each other. 


Mr Padfield
