The Curriculum

A first-class, progressive education in preparation for Common Entrance/scholarship to the first-choice senior school. We have an excellent track record of boys gaining places and scholarships at leading public schools.

Games & The Arts

Sport is an integral part of life at Elstree; every child receives daily sport coaching and has the opportunity to represent the school. With four choirs, orchestras, ensembles, 90 % of boys learn an instrument – music is thriving at Elstree.

Pastoral Care

Elstree School prides itself on the individual care that each child receives. Our dedicated staff play an essential role in supporting the pastoral programme which is a fundamental part of life in and out of the classroom. Each child’s academic and personal progress is monitored, attesting to our belief that personal growth and academic development derive from a happy, caring environment where children are encouraged and feel valued.

Recent Scholarships

Abingdon, Bradfield, Eton, Harrow, Marlborough, Pangbourne, Radley, Sherborne, Stowe, Uppingham, Winchester and Wellington.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

At Elstree we are academically ambitious and provide a first class all-round education. Our boys go on to the top public schools and we are immensely proud of the strong Common Entrance and Scholarship record. The emphasis is on building confidence, developing talent and maximising potential.

Outstanding Characteristics

In Elstree’s magnificent 150 acre setting, academic achievement is balanced with the chance to be involved in a wide variety of activities. We embed the important values of hard work, kindness and taking opportunities. Our family friendly boarding develops life skills that will serve boys well in public school and beyond.
