Guest Blog: Tom Rhimes, Assistant Headteacher

As I approach the end of my first month at Elmhurst, I would like to reflect on my time spent here so far.  Elmhurst is a very happy school; it is inspiring to see so many children walking around school with big smiles on their faces. Part of my role as Assistant Headteacher is to welcome the boys to school in the morning, and it is especially refreshing to see boys desperate to enter the building at the start of the day. This is partly down to Elmhurst being a nurturing environment where children are able to thrive, and partly down to the teaching. The teaching at Elmhurst is first class, and I’ve been blown away by the level of knowledge many of the boys have!

From my very first day, I have been welcomed by pupils, parents and staff and it has been wonderful to work in such a creative and nurturing environment. Moving forwards, my vision for the school is one of happiness and hard work. I believe that happy children work the hardest both inside and outside of the classroom, and I am looking forward to celebrating the boys’ successes, whether they are academic, sporting, musical or otherwise.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Elmhurst community for making the start of the year so positive, and I’m sure that as we progress through the year, there will be many more positive experiences to come!
