At The Elms we have a wealth of specialist facilities that enhance the curriculum and the education opportunities for our children.

These include:

  • Two design rooms for Art and Design Technology, one equipped with cooking facilities for food technology.
  • A large ICT suite enabling all children to each have access to the very latest computers. In addition, there are many other computers around the school, including banks of laptops that the children can use in their classrooms as part of cross-curricular work. All teaching rooms are equipped with the very latest Interactive Whiteboards for teaching.
  • A well-equipped science room for the teaching of science and food technology.
  • A large and well-stocked library, which is fully staffed by our own specialist children’s librarian.  The library is used only at lunchtimes and after-school as a positive, fun, addition to lessons.
  • The Elms music school, housed in a dedicated building containing a large music classroom, where all children receive music lessons from our Director of Music, dedicated practice rooms for music instrument tuition and a room for speech and drama lessons.
  • A dedicated MFL (modern foreign languages) classroom for the teaching of French, German and Spanish by our specialist teacher.
  • A hall for gym and dance lessons.

Playgrounds & Outdoor Spaces

In addition to the shared areas of our school, each age-specific area has safe appropriate facilities to enable outdoor play and outdoor learning.

At The Elms our playgrounds are a fun and exciting escape from all the hard work that goes on in the classrooms. Friendly prefects and enthusiastic lunchtime supervisors assist all ages of children to play a range of games at lunchtime.

The Nursery and Reception playground are a vibrant space with light and shade, music making stations, painted walls, equipment and activities to keep all children happily entertained throughout lunchtime.

Our Year 1 and 2 playground has climbing frames and a range of role play equipment that satisfies the theatrical skills of many children. Hoops and skipping ropes as well as a range of balls give children opportunity to experience a range of activities.

The Year 3 playground has a large space for developing social skills and has recently benefitted from a fantastic Trim Trail that is used, and loved, by all children.

Years 4, 5 and 6 share a larger space with many areas. The astro turf is used for team and ball games. There is also a hard court area which has been designated a “non-running” area which allows games such as Giant Jenga and Chess to take place. This is also a space where lunchtime supervisors are often seen joining in with skipping games! In addition to these two areas there is also an adventure playground and a large grass area for more activities to occur.

The wider campus

In addition to the above facilities which are dedicated Elms spaces, we also have access to wonderful facilities that we share with our Senior School Trent College.

These include use of the extensive fields and courts, astro-turf pitches and the May Hall Theatre for large scale performing arts events, the Chapel, the Swimming Pool and the opportunities offered by the 45 acre landscaped grounds and arboretum.

We benefit enormously from sharing our campus with Trent College, as well as the use of the many wonderful facilities it also aids the transition from primary to secondary education.
