Support Us Financially

The School’s mission is to ‘provide an outstanding and well-rounded education for girls and boys, built upon the principles of Christianity’. Philanthropy goes hand in hand with the Christian Values upon which the College was founded and everything we have achieved to date is thanks to the generosity of our Parents and OE community. We encourage today’s students to consider these values, so that all might live a life for the benefit of others.

In 2023, 19 students received transformative 100%+ bursary support

Eltham College has a long established history of supporting students and their families financially. This stems from our founding ethos and remains just as important today. Unlike many independent schools, Eltham College was not founded upon a large endowment, nor does it have the financial backing of a wealthy City Livery Company. The success of Eltham College is testimony to the ongoing support from the whole Eltham College Community.

Any funds provided are ring-fenced to support bursaries or other transformational projects across the school.
There are three main ways you can support Eltham College:

Make a regular donation
A regular donation helps Eltham College plan for the future and can amount to a substantial figure over time. With the addition of Gift Aid, your gift to the College increases significantly (by 25%) at no cost to you. For example, if 100 OEs gave just £13.88 per month for three years (£500), this would equate to £50,000 – which would fund a student through the sixth form! You can set up a regular donation below.

Make a one-off donation
We realise not everyone is able to commit to a gift on a regular basis, but if you are able to support the College with a one-off gift at the moment, please donate securely online below. With the addition of Gift Aid, your donation to Eltham College increases significantly (by 25%) at no cost to you.

Leave a legacy to Eltham
Like many who enjoyed bursaries (Direct Grants or Assisted Places) here in the past, we want future generations to benefit from those same opportunities.

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