Elstree offers a first-class, progressive education in preparation for Common Entrance or Entrance Scholarship to your first choice senior school.

Our whole school Curriculum Policy offers a wide choice of experiences, skills and subjects from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), through Key Stages 1 & 2, to Common Entrance and Scholarship level and aims to realise the highest academic expectations for all pupils within a framework of proven learning, techniques and innovative and exciting teaching methods.  Children develop at different rates, both academically and emotionally, and our small classes (average class size of 12 pupils) enable us to stretch the most academically able and to support those who need extra care and attention

The timetable includes English, Mathematics, French, Science, Geography, History, TPR, ICT, Art, Design Technology, Music, Physical Education and PSHE.  Latin and Spanish are introduced to all children in Year 5, and the Scholarship class operates in parallel with the last two years of Common Entrance preparation.

Elstree is proud of its academic record which includes an impressive array of Scholarship Awards (Scholarship Awards 2020) to leading senior  schools (senior school destinations 2020), maximising a pupils’ academic potential and also building each child’s self-confidence.
