Welcome to The Elms Academy

At The Elms Academy, our motto is something we strive to live up to each and every day – both for our students and as staff. We seek to bring out the best in every student and give them the knowledge, skills and experiences they need to excel in today’s world.

Choosing a secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent makes so we are delighted you have chosen The Elms Academy. 

We know our partnership with you is key to your child’s success so we are committed to building a strong relationship with you based on mutual respect, care and understanding.

At The Elms Academy we endeavour to bring out the very best in everyone. Our mission is to enable each of our students to grow into confident young adults who go on to lead happy and fulfilled lives. We seek to open the doors to a world of opportunity so that our young people have the freedom to choose their future, whatever their ambitions may be.

We do this by ensuring students gain everything they need during their time in school to succeed at the highest levels. Our three values – integrity, ambition and determination – are embedded across every aspect of school life. We deliver a rigorous academic curriculum, with expert, supportive teaching, so that students achieve the best qualifications possible.

Importantly, we also value what we call 'education with character'; one that challenges, inspires and excites students and provides a rich variety of experiences and opportunities outside of the classroom. This helps to build vital life skills and nurture a deep love of learning in our young people. 

The Elms Academy is your school too and as we are truly an open school, you are very welcome to come for a visit anytime during the school day.  You will see calm, focussed lessons and safe, happy children.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
