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 4 Assembly - 17th March 2017
On Friday 17th March 2017 4HC & 4GS shared their learning in an amazing showcase of their spring based topic: Ancient Greece
It was a busy week for Year 6 last week. As well as our trip to the Horniman Museum, a charity called Urban Synergy came to school.
This charity works to inspire young people by inviting successful professionals into schools to talk to children about their achievements. Acting as mentors, the professionals talked to them in small groups, gave top tips and helped the children think about their own aspirations for the future. We had mentors from Microsoft, the film industry, the financial and legal sectors as well as representatives from the Prime Minister’s office and a former Eliot Bank pupil, who now has an OBE awarded to her for her work in the chocolate industry. All our children thoroughly enjoyed the event and the opportunity to hear about each mentor’s personal journey.
