The journey through High School is an exciting yet daunting one. It takes place at a time when a teenager’s role and identity changes dramatically and at Elkanah House we embrace the challenge to help our students to prepare to take his or her place in society.
A High School education is not only about marks and examinations- it is also about values, character and spirituality. Our High School is characterised by a blend of traditional and new ideas: we wear blazers, but not ties; we use technology extensively and have a hand-rung school-bell; we play rugby and also have body-boarding; we value individuals and serve the community.
In our school, we aim to challenge the young minds of our pupils so that they have to think for themselves. Once people learn to think for themselves, they start to respect themselves and begin to recognise the part they have to play in their community: be it a class, team or family unit. They then start to see the possibilities that exist around them.
At Elkanah House, we work to a high standard, because it is only through this process of engaging with an authentic challenge that we can expect any transformation of heart and mind to take place. We believe that now more than ever, young people need clear expectations, consistent boundaries with consequences and committed support in order for them to grow into successful, content individuals.
