Car Parking

From Tuesday 30th May the main Eric Liddell Sports Centre car park on Mottingham Lane will close until August 2024. 

This is to provide space for the expansion and refurbishment of Eltham College’s Science and Technology Centre.  The work, which includes the provision of four additional science labs, is essential to accommodate the growing curriculum demand for science and technology subjects by its students. Also within the scope is a redesign of the car park layout, allowing a safer pedestrian route for pupils. During this time:

  • Parking will be available at the front of the school, via Grove Park Road at the locations detailed in this link ELSC Car Parking May 23 – August 2024
  • Alternatively customers can considerately park in one of the roads locally, many of which do not require parking permits.
  • Visitors during the school day will be asked to drop and go, or to park off site during this time.
  • A pedestrian access route will be provided to the centres main reception entrance
