Welcome to Ellesmere College
Welcome to Ellesmere College - a school which reflects your beliefs and values.
We take pride in the achievements of each and every
student according to his or her abilities, not just in the achievements of the
brightest and the best. Ellesmere is people centred, not stats obsessed and
where academic success is doing the very best you can. We focus on the
individual, not on our shop window.
Everyone is valued equally. If a student is
outstandingly good at something, that does not make them better than anyone
else, we celebrate every
child's progress, at every stage.
We seek to embed resilience to overcome
difficulties as a partner to enthusiasm when things go as hoped.
Ellesmere College takes academic achievement very seriously, as well as the
arts, music, drama and sport - we work hard to maintain a balance. We are a school that believes in
High Performance Learning (HPL) – that all pupils have the ability to achieve
We like students with lots of interests and enthusiasm. Ellesmere College is not a school for narrow specialists. We like students who love to have a go at new things. Ellesmere is not a school for people who hold back.
We relish the rich range of personalities we have here. There is no such person as a typical Ellesmerian. Ellesmere is famously forward looking and innovative. You'll never catch this school clinging to tradition for its own sake or resting on its laurels.
