About Eltham College
Eltham College is a thriving independent day school currently catering for boys aged 7 to 18, with a co-educational Sixth Form. From 2020, we will begin to move towards becoming a fully co-educational day school, when we welcome our first intake of girls alongside boys in Years 3 and 7.
We are a highly successful and exciting school which aims to provide a broad and balanced education that will prepare students for the modern world. The school is regularly found amongst the leading academic schools in the country and boasts many county and national players in a range of sports, as well as exceptionally talented musicians, actors and artists. The broader co-curricular programme is wide and diverse.
The College has a distinctive character, born out of its Christian heritage, and we have continued to focus on the care of the individual as we have grown in recent years. Strong pastoral care, an energetic House system that promotes collegiality, and a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere make the school a happy and vibrant place for students and staff.
Alongside the ambitious programme of school development and expansion, a strong emphasis is placed upon staff support and development. Many staff choose to stay; but equally others are prepared and trained for future promotion in leading HMC schools.
