Sitting in the cradle of the Malvern Hills, The Elms provides a setting and environment for children to experience the very best of their formative years.
The genuine investment in the sanctity of childhood, where the wellbeing of each child is central to everything we do, is apparent from the first step you take through the school gates.
We are a fully independent prep school and we pride ourselves on ensuring the Year 8 children move on to the best senior school for them. We are also very proud of the amount of these children who achieve scholarships to these schools. Last year 45 percent of our leavers achieved scholarships in a wide variety of areas.
Due to the size and nature of the school we enjoy the extended family feeling, and the small class sizes allow us to provide a tailored experience for every child.
Headmaster Chris Hattam is now really hitting his stride in his fourth year at the helm. There are exciting new staff hires, remodelled school day in response to parent demand, plans to revitalise school weekends in place and all without changing the essence of The Elms.
The academic success is delivered without pressure and a huge range of co-curricular opportunities are on offer to suit every child, with facilities to rival the glossiest Home Counties prep.
There is an overarching atmosphere of kindness, having fun and making the most of every golden prep school minute. No wonder London families are flocking – the secret is well and truly out.
