Legacy Donation

Like many who enjoyed bursaries (or Direct Grants/Assisted Places) here in the past, we want future generations to be able to benefit from the same opportunities. The benefits of bursary awards extend beyond those who receive them; they enrich the whole College by enhancing its intellectual and social diversity.


Our vision is to establish a bursary endowment fund which will continue to grow and provide bursary places in perpetuity.
This is an ambitious objective for the College, and it will not be possible without your help.


By including a gift to the College in your Will, you help shape the future of Eltham College. Your legacy will help us become fully inclusive, working towards equity in education through the provision of 100–110% bursaries. Basics such as school uniform, sports kits, musical instruments, educational trips and even school lunches can still be barriers for students attending the College – even when their fees are covered. We want to completely remove this burden from families and ensure bursary students have the same opportunities as their peers.

  • 19 Students receiving 100%+ bursary support (2023)
  • £2.3m dedicated fee assistance (up from £2m in 2021)

A gift to Eltham College in your Will is an investment in future Elthamians. Simply tell your Solicitor or Will-maker that you would like to remember Eltham College (Registered Charity Number: 1058438) in your Will.
