Open Days

Visiting Eltham is the best way to get a real sense of who we are and to assess if you would be happy here.

We encourage you to come to one of our open days, visitor mornings, or for a tour and we are always delighted to welcome families to Eltham College at any of our concerts, drama productions, private art views or sport fixtures throughout the year.

11+ Visitor Afternoon

Please note the 11+ Visitor Afternoon (Year 7 entry in 2020) is fully booked. As space is limited, any available places will be advertised here. Please do book onto the Whole School Open Day below. 

This is an opportunity to visit the College during a normal working day. There will be a short introduction from the Headmaster, followed by a tour with a current student, then a talk from the Head of Lower School, about the transition to Year 7, and the Registrar who will explain the admissions process, including information about scholarships and bursaries, as well as the assessment day. The afternoon will finish with refreshments and an opportunity to ask individual questions of senior members of staff.
