At Eltham Hill, we take a holistic view of education. We are a dynamic 21st century girls school and believe that the curriculum is a vehicle to improve students’ life chances and support their diverse needs and aspirations regardless of their starting point. This is driven by a core belief in equality and social justice.
Our curriculum is designed to provide opportunities for progress and success for our students not just for the people they are today but the people they will be in the future and the world that they will live in. We aim to prepare our young people to become:
- Confident and successful individuals, who enjoy learning, make ambitious progress and achieve high quality and meaningful qualifications.
- Responsible citizens, who make a positive contribution to society including their local community and the wider international world in which they exist.
- Critical thinkers, who actively question rather than take things at face value. Who examine their thinking at a deeper level and develop the courage to think for themselves.
Through our curriculum, (as made explicit in the Eltham Hill Learner Profile), we hope to develop learners that are:
- Open- minded
- Risk- takers
Our ambition is underpinned by our core values of excellence, happiness and success.
We are a diverse, inclusive and cohesive school community. We seek to cultivate a happy and caring community that fosters a culture of excellence where success is celebrated and students are encouraged to aim high and become active contributors to society.
Working with families
At Eltham Hill School, we take time to build genuine partnerships with parents and carers as we believe this vital to every student’s success. For us, positive communication and mutual trust are crucial and we actively encourage parents and carers to become involved in their daughter’s education.
Clear and frequent channels of communication mean our families are well informed and able to make a positive contribution. We ensure this happens from the start so the transition for our students is smooth and purposeful.
