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 our pupils 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 can represent the school. With four choirs, orchestras, ensembles, and 75 per cent learning an instrument, music is also thriving at Elstree. Drama plays a huge role with multiple school productions per year.

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.
