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.

Collaborative Spelling Bee

Eliot Bank recently hosted the annual spelling bee for our local collaborative of schools. Year 3 children from Eliot Bank, Holy Trinity, Kelvin Grove, Horniman and St Bart's competed to win the spelling bee trophy of 2017.

This year, the trophy was won by the team from Kelvin Grove, but all the children performed brilliantly and impressed us with their confidence, bravery and spelling prowess.

A huge well done to the Eliot Bank Year 3 team.

Year 4 Assembly - 16th June 2017

On Friday the 16th June 2017 it was Year 4’s turn to show what they had been learning in Maths. They acted out a scene where three superheroes, Captain Kilo, Lieutenant Litre and Major Metre came to help some children with a measures mix up. The class then performed a rap called ‘Metres, Litres and Grams’ which explained the different units of measure.
