School profile

Elmwood School

Elmwood is a calm, purposeful and safe environment where the educational and emotional needs are paramount for all that embark on our learning community. As a school we align our practice through the “Rights of the Child” and work in collaboration so all understand that with these rights comes responsibilities. We also provide opportunities for “risk taking” so that we can all make inform choices within our own community. The impact of such is fantastic outcomes at KS4, resulting in a high percentage of year 11’s remaining within education, training or employment.

If you are ready “to choose your adventure” then please arrange a visit and see if you could add value to our Elmwood Learning Community.

The Elmwood Way identifies the core values being at the heart of what we do, aligned to these values are observable behaviours that are demonstrable by all who are involved with Elmwood’s Learning Community.
