Parent-Teacher Association Overview

Who we are and what we do

The PTA plays a vital role in the life of Eltham College. Financial support is provided by a variety of fundraising events such as quiz evenings, a summer ball and second-hand uniform sales. We are pivotal in organising a community spirit by holding many social events and supporting school activities, such as the Big Run in April. In recent years the Association has financed many projects in the school.

Previous projects have included:

  • a notice board for the Junior School playground, informing parents of events, news and general school life

  • wooden benches for pupils to enjoy at break and lunch within the school grounds

  • musical equipment for the Junior School, encouraging extended percussion tuition, ultimately leading to the formation of a Samba Band in the Junior School

  • furniture for the Junior School and Senior School libraries

  • seating for the Gerald Moore Gallery Sculpture Garden

  • hockey masks

  • new lighting desk for the Antony Barnard Hall

  • a video camera to support the Teaching and Learning programme


All parents are welcome to attend and you can contact your Form Rep or any Committee member for more information or if you are interested in taking on a specific role.

Please could you let Nikki Adamson know if you are able to attend via email

Links with the PTA

Many of our parents and associated friends have wider links within the community and business world that the PTA is happy to support. If you would like to advertise or promote your business and support the PTA, please contact Jacqui Baldwin (

Please note that the standard College brand has been updated and new items are available to parents for the first time from the summer of 2017. Items in the previous style may be worn until summer 2019. 

Second-hand Uniform Sales

Uniform sales take place on the first Thursday of each month in the Science Block from 3.15-4-00pm.

Good quality second-hand uniform, including sports kit is available at competitive prices. 

Donations: We always need school blazers and sports kit, please leave donations at the School Office. Please note, we do not take school shirts, trousers or the old style sports kit.

Dinner Jackets for Musicians

Many of our pupils are involved in Musical Ensembles. It makes sense to start re-cycling dinner jackets, which can be expensive to purchase new. If your child has outgrown his dinner jacket or trousers, please send them to the Second-Hand Uniform Sale. The more jackets we receive, the better the supply you will have to choose from. Please ensure they are in good condition.
