Our Vision

We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. Our vision is to bring out the very best in every student and give them the knowledge, skills and experiences they need to succeed in today's world. 

The Elms Academy fosters integrity, ambition, and determination so that students make healthy, wise and principled choices that lead to happy and fulfilled lives.


At The Elms Academy our values reflect who we are and are at the heart of everything we do.  They drive our academic curriculum and the effort and attitudes we expect from our students.

Integrity – we always do the right thing, even if no one is watching

We lead by example every day and treat others as we would want to be treated. This means always making the right choices, even if that is not the easy option.

Ambition – we can achieve anything we set our minds to 

We have confidence in our abilities and know we can succeed in all our goals if we remain focused and put the work in. This means having high expectations of ourselves and being courageous in our everyday decisions rather than taking the easy route.

Determination – we never give up

We believe in 100% effort (focus and hard work), every day, and go the extra mile in everything we do. This means always trying our hardest even when it is difficult because we thrive when challenged and learn the most from our mistakes.
