With 70 acres of playing fields, a sports centre and pool, and a school theatre, Eltham offers a wide range of sports led by professional coaches and tutors. Music opportunities are outstanding with more than 30 orchestras, bands, ensembles and choirs and regular concerts, while Drama offers regular performances.

Pastoral Care

We provide exemplary pastoral care to all students. Our teachers, nurses, school counsellor and Chaplain ensure students are supported academically and emotionally every day, attending their form time and leading discussions about the importance of keeping minds and bodies healthy, and how best to do this.
