Introducing the Elmhurst All Rounder Award

Elmhurst School for Boys

13th September 2019 | Heads Blog

Welcome back to all our boys and a warm welcome to those who are joining us for their first year at Elmhurst School for Boys. We are set to have an exciting year ahead! 

At Elmhurst, we pride ourselves on living our core values each and every day. As a community, it is our responsibility to Inspire our boys to step out of their comfort zone and challenge the norm to not only develop their current talents but also find new ones. Once established, we work hard to Nurture those talents by encouraging and supporting our boys in their attempts to achieve success. It is then important for us all to Celebrate those achievements by giving recognition to the hard work and dedication that has taken place behind the scenes. 

This is why we have identified ‘Valuing Individuality’ as one of our focus areas for our School Development Plan. We recognise that each and every one of us has a set of unique individual talents. It is for this very reason that we want to provide our Elmhurst boys with the opportunity to explore their talents, push boundaries and discover new interests. This is the very concept behind our Elmhurst All Rounder award. The award is a combination of different aspects that make us who we are, and throughout the year our boys will challenge themselves in each of these areas, or ‘missions’, in order to achieve their Elmhurst All Rounder badge. 

We are all very excited by this new initiative, not least because of the Superheroes who represent each aspect of the award; Super Communicator, Super Collaborator, Super Critical Thinker, Super Creative Thinker, Super Citizen and Super Elmhurst Boy (Character). Each half term will focus on a different Superhero and new missions will be given to challenge the boys. 

We hope that the award will challenge our boys to explore new ideas, work alongside their classmates and think outside the box, on their journey to becoming an all round ‘Elmhurst Boy’. 


- Mr AJ Padfield
