Headmaster’s Welcome

It is a pleasure and a privilege to be Headmaster of this very special school.  Elstree provides a happy, secure and purposeful environment in which children can be nurtured and inspired.  Strong academic results, a thriving extra-curricular programme, a beautiful setting and exceptional pastoral care, make it an idyllic environment for pupils to spend their childhood.

Academically ambitious

Set in 150 acres of stunning parkland in rural West Berkshire, Elstree welcomes boys and girls aged 3-13 years.  From Year 4 onwards, pupils can choose to flexi or weekly board. 

At Elstree, we are academically ambitious and provide a first class all-round education. Our pupils go on to the top senior schools (senior school destinations 2023) and we are immensely proud of the strong Common Entrance and Scholarship examinations (Scholarship Record 2023).

Our firm belief that happiness breeds success, places the emphasis on positive thinking, building self-confidence and developing each child’s academic potential and interests to the full. 

Giving children a proper childhood at Elstree

Coupled with academic ambition comes the importance of giving children a proper childhood.  Creativity, teamwork and tolerance go hand in hand with a hunger and curiosity to learn and a strong will to succeed. 

Christian values underpin everything we do and the aim is always to embed the important values of kindness to others, hard work and making the most of opportunities.  

Olivia and I, and our dedicated team of staff, would be delighted to welcome you to Elstree to give you the opportunity to see it for yourself. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Mission Statement and Ethos

We encourage all children to make their best effort to reach a level they thought they could not reach.  We hope they will achieve this through the honesty of their endeavour, the dedication and skill of the caring staff, the inspiring environment for learning and the excellence of the facilities.  Their talents will be underpinned by fostering an understanding that communities thrive and flourish through respect, courtesy, honesty, loyalty and fairness.  Our wish is for them all to seek to serve their community.
