Welcome to Eliot Bank Primary School


Assessment & Achievement

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 6 - Stone Age Workshop

On Wednesday 11th January, year 6 had a fantastic workshop to help bring their topic ‘The stone age’ to life. They acted out the role of stone age man as he moved from being a hunter gatherer to becoming a settler. They made a human Stonehenge and considered the methods that might have been involved to create the real one without the aid of today’s modern machinery.
