Open Days

Visiting a school forms an important part of the decision-making process for families who are shortlisting schools for admissions applications. Our autumn programme of open events ordinarily allows parents and children to meet our students and staff, explore our facilities and get a sense of what it is like to be a pupil at Eltham College.  

This autumn, as a direct result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we regret that the school site is closed to visitors. Instead we encourage you to join one of our digital open events. These new events will give you the opportunity to hear from the Headmaster and relevant pastoral staff, as well as students and some of our specialist Heads of Department.
