About Eltham College
Eltham College is an academically outstanding independent day school situated just 15 minutes from both central London by train, and from the M25 and the Kent countryside by car.
The school currently caters for boys aged 7 to 18, with a co-educational Sixth Form. From 2020, it will begin to move towards becoming a fully co-educational day school, when it welcomes its first intake of girls and boys in Year 3 and 7. It is regularly found amongst the leading academic schools in the country and boasts many county and national players in a range of sports. The co-curricular programme is wide and diverse.
The school has a distinctive character, born out of its Christian heritage, and continues to focus on the care of the individual. Strong pastoral care and a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere make the school a happy and vibrant place.
There is an ambitious programme of development and expansion as well as a strong emphasis on staff development. Many staff choose to stay; but equally others are prepared and trained for future promotion in leading HMC schools.
