Elstree School

Elstree School is a day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3-13 in Woolhampton, Berkshire. Set in idyllic grounds of 150 acres, an hour from west London, Elstree offers a secure environment for pupils to be nurtured and inspired.

Elstree become a fully co-educational school in September 2020. Girls and boys can begin their journey in Nursery from three and smoothly transition to Elstree Prep School until the end of Year 8. Flexi and weekly boarding is available from Year 4.

Proud of its reputation as a school with high academic, creative and sporting achievements, pupils from Elstree have gained places to some of the top senior schools, including Bradfield, Radley College, Eton College, Marlborough College and Winchester. Forty-five scholarships and exhibitions have been awarded to Elstree pupils since 2015.

While success is something celebrated, Elstree recognises that being open, compassionate and tolerant of others, is equally important. Through enrichment programmes and an outstanding array of extra curriculum activities, Elstree provides an environment where both girls and boys can develop the skills necessary to thrive in today’s world.

Elstree is large enough to accommodate its own Nursery and Pre-Prep, two state of the art Science laboratories, modern Music School, full size all-weather pitch, outdoor pool, forest for outdoor learning and camping, and a lake for kayaking, yet with an intake of around 220, is small enough to be personal and family-focused.

In the school’s last ISI Inspection Report it said: “Elstree School is highly successful in meeting its aim of providing a first class all-round education, while embedding the values of hard work, kindness to others and making the most of opportunities. This is thanks to an excellent curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities and to excellent teaching, which inspires and motivates pupils to want to learn.”

A Monday morning bus runs from Earls Court and Hammersmith, London. Local buses run daily from Hungerford, Peasemore, West Reading and Basingstoke. The school day can be extended with after school care provision.

Elstree’s next open mornings are on 6th February (Pre-Prep & Prep), 27th February (Prep only)  and 6th March 2021 at 10.00am (Pre-Prep & Prep). To book your place, email the School Registrar, Mrs Tish Gauci – [email protected] or call – T: 0118 971 3302.
