A Message from the Head of School, Jenny Klein
Eliot Bank is an Outstanding Primary School with a happy, vibrant atmosphere, looking out across the North Downs from its site high up on the Sydenham Forest Hill borders. Whilst we are extremely proud of our excellent track record in progress and attainment, we believe that children will only do their best when they feel safe and happy. Our whole school ethos centres around giving children an excellent academic education, balanced by a broad, relevant curriculum, lots of visits and trips, clubs and a whole range of opportunities to get involved in school life beyond the classroom. Pupils, staff and parents work together to create a caring inclusive school that allows each individual child to achieve their full potential.

Year 5 Assembly - 25th November 2016
On Friday the 25th November 2016 it was Year 6’s turn to show what they have been learning in their Monarch topic. They acted out the battles that took place when Edward the Confessor died, took us through the Tudor period with a visit form Henry VIII and brought us right up to date with an interview with Elizabeth II. They then sang a song that listed every Monarch of Britain since 1066 to the present day.
