About The Elms Academy: The Elms Academy is a very diverse and vibrant community situated on Clapham Common. In 2022 our A level results were ranked the first in United Learning Academies. A tremendous 79% of students achieved a grade 4 or above in both English and maths, with 60% achieving grade 5 or above in the two subjects. At the higher levels, nearly 30% (actual figure is 28%) of all students achieved a grade 7 or above in English and Maths. Our progress 8 score was +0.73 which put us at the top of the Lambeth borough.

These results are due to the unique culture and community that has developed at The Elms Academy. The highest expectations of students and real academic rigour are combined with a strong focus on developing the whole child. There is a culture in which every single child matters, and must be supported to achieve their full potential. Unlike local selective schools, our pupils are from a variety of backgrounds and are mixed gender, meaning that Grammar Stream pupils will learn how to socialise and communicate effectively with others. 41% of our students are pupil premium (nearly twice the national average) and so we are working to help some of the UK's most disadvantaged students achieve the best GCSE results possible and thus change lives. All staff at the academy are driven by a strong mission to provide educational excellence to students with the least privilege.

Our results show that The Elms Academy is a place where students from all backgrounds thrive academically and socially in an atmosphere of mutual respect, tolerance and diversity. Our academic approach is for every student in every lesson to enjoy their learning. We strive to ensure that our teaching standards are exceptionally high, and that children feel safe and supported in school. Lessons follow a knowledge-rich and academically rigorous curriculum, and we place a significant emphasis on teachers inspiring their students to love their subject through strong personal subject knowledge and a passion for their subject.

The Elms Academy is a close-knit and diverse community that learns together, has fun together and continues on our journey towards all-around excellence for each individual student year after year.

The Academy has cultivated a friendly and welcoming environment for all its staff, with a strong collaborative culture that has community at its heart.
