Elstree School is hosting a Girls’ Discovery Morning and lunch on Saturday 7th March.  The first ten girls who then enrol for a place in September 2020, will be offered the Elstree School Pioneer Award.* This equates to a fifty percent reduction of the day fees for the duration of their time at Elstree (see Terms & Conditions* below).

Elstree announced last year that it was becoming fully co-educational from September 2020.  Girls are already in Nursery to Year 3, but can now join the Prep School and stay until the end of Year 8. 

Headmaster Sid Inglis said: “Elstree’s Pioneer Award recognises Prep School girls who will help promote Elstree’s positive move to becoming fully co-educational. As our ambassadors, they will benefit from an Elstree education that nurtures our core values and lasts a lifetime.”

On the day, girls and families will meet Elstree’s Year 4 pupil Sophie, talk to the Headmaster, see the school and get to chat to Staff.

The taster session starts at 10.00am and finishes at 1.30pm.  Girls will be given a dance lesson, spend time on the trampoline, and make something to take home in design and technology.

Parents are welcome to ‘drop and run’, or stay for a tour of the school. Refreshments will be served again at 12pm, followed by a buffet lunch for girls and their families.

Friends, sisters and cousins are also welcome, but as activities are age-appropriate, they will also need to be in Years 2, 3 or 4.

Those wishing to attend can do so by visiting the school’s website or by contacting the Registrar on T: 01189 713 302.
