We'll be back soon!

As per the government's announcement, we confirm that Elmfield School is now temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 situation.

Click here for information about what we are doing during this time.
We would like to reassure you that Elmfield School is closely following the advice issued by the government and Public Health England about the coronavirus (COVID-19). The decision to close the school was made following advice from the Department for Education and in conjunction with the Head of Education Outcomes at our Local Education Authority.  


In today's rapidly changing and often confusing world, many people question how to help their children find their place and keep a sense of themselves and their values. At Elmfield we strive to be a haven from the chaos of the modern world whilst at the same time equipping our students to be the adults of the future.

Our Mission Statement

"Our highest endeavour must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education."

Marie Steiner

Our task at Elmfield is to help the children to realise their own potential. Together we endeavour to provide education rooted in Rudolf Steiner’s view of the human being, thus preparing the children for their individual paths in life.
