Values and vision
Staff and governors of The Elton High School are devoted to contributing to the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, intellectual, creative and physical development of all students. The secondary school aims to achieve this by delivering a curriculum that contributes to student learning, attainment and personal development, and that is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated, within and beyond the classroom.
“Consistently good teaching in languages, humanities, art and physical education enables students to achieve well from their starting points.

Attendance is above average. Students enjoy coming to school.”
