It is a rule of the school that uniform in accordance with current regulations must be worn in school, on journeys to and from school, on all school occasions, and when the school is being represented at games fixtures either home or away.
All clothing must be clearly and securely marked with the owner’s name. In any dispute over clothing regulations, the Headmaster’s judgment is final.
The regulation articles are to be obtained from John Lewis online only.

Music Concerts and Performances
Please note that the Dress Code for the majority of Eltham College (Senior School) concerts is Dinner Jackets (or very dark/black suits) with black bow tie and white shirt for boys and all black (long dresses) for girls.
