The Elms School is a co-educational, independent, boarding, prep school located in Colwall, Herefordshire, England, at the foot of the Malvern Hills. Including its pre-prep department, it caters for children from 2½ to 13 years old.
The Elms was founded in 1614 by Humphrey Walwyn of the Worshipful Company of Grocers, and is the oldest prep school still on its original site. In 2014 The Elms School will be celebrating its 400 year anniversary. It maintains close links with the Grocers' Company, and receives financial assistance from the company's charitable arm.
The school's current headmaster is Alastair Thomas. Unusually, the school includes a working farm, which the children can take part in, and keep their horses there.
