Outstanding Achievements, Outstanding Individuals!

Elmhurst School for Boys

10th March 2017 | Heads Blog

Congratulations must go to our Year 6 boys who have received offers of places at their secondary schools of choice. Some of the boys are still waiting to finalise their places and to make their decisions on which school they want to attend but the offers this year for our Elmhurst boys have again been outstanding, continuing our long tradition of successful transition to the next stage in their education. I wish them all the very best in securing their places.

The boys can now look forward to experiencing some of the broader areas of the curriculum such as the English Speaking Board exam in May, the day trip to France, where they can impress the locals with their French language skills, the residential trip to Hayling Island for a week of challenging Outward Bounds activities and their end of year production of...The Tempest!

You may be aware that there have been a number of other teachers in lessons this week. This is because we have been participating in our annual Bellevue School Learning Review. This is a developmental process which involves a team of teachers from other Bellevue schools spending three days with us reviewing our teaching and learning. I am delighted to be able to inform you that the feedback we have had from Mr Harrison who is leading the Review team, has been very positive. We will have some development points to work on as we move forwards, but the review is an example of how we are constantly striving to improve everything we do as a Bellevue School.

Mr South always had an open door policy and while I am in the position of Acting Head this policy remains the same. Please feel free to discuss any issues you have with your son or the school, with me. I look forward to meeting many of you on Wednesday evening between 7 and 8pm for the Open Evening on Our Shared ' Vision of The 21st. Century Boy '.

-Mr. A J Padfield
 Acting Headmaster
