Message from our Headteacher

Welcome to Elms Bank! Elms Bank is a school with a real sense of community - we really are a school family! We pride ourselves on being a welcoming school with a strong emphasis on pastoral care, alongside a rigorous academic education tailored to the needs of the individual.

We believe in and practice personalised learning to meet the very different needs of all our students. I am completely priviledged and proud to lead a highly skilled and dedicated staff team. We strive to deliver an outstanding service for all the young people in our care.

Our Vision - Elms Bank offers a holistic provision. Our students’ achievements and successes are celebrated widely. We use innovative and aspirational strategies to increase students’ resilience and confidence to overcome barriers to ensure their lives are enriched both now and into adulthood. We believe that at the heart of a student’s personalised success is exceptional teaching, learning and pastoral care. We pride ourselves on our overwhelming sense of family and community; where every staff member leads with integrity and compassion to achieve ‘Excellence for All’.
