Elmhurst School for Boys identifies, nurtures and celebrates the talents of each and every boy, in an inspiring environment which blends innovation with 150 years of rich tradition and successfully equips boys with the skills they need to excel in the 21st century. 

Situated in South Croydon, with excellent local road and rail links, Elmhurst educates pupils aged three to eleven years and has an enviable track record of supporting its boys to gain places at some of the country’s leading senior schools across South London, Surrey and Kent.

As part of the Bellevue Education group, Elmhurst School for Boys benefits from shared best-practice and resource, in addition to focused training programmes covering all aspects of education. The School also receives specialist support from Bellevue in the areas of educational training and professional development, finance, human resources and marketing, enabling the Head to focus on the most important aspects of their work: delivering an exceptional education which enables every child to reach their full potential. Bellevue is a group that equips its leaders with the freedom and tools required to thrive in today’s demanding environment.

Bellevue is now seeking to appoint a new Head for Elmhurst School for Boys from September 2021. The next Head will lead the School with vision, inspiration and initiative in creating a climate which enables every member of the school community to flourish.
