About Eltham College

Eltham College is a thriving, co-educational independent day school for students aged 7 to 18, comprising a separate Junior School and three divisions (Lower, Middle and Sixth Form) in the Senior School.

Over the past few years, the school has grown considerably; there are just under 800 students in the Senior School and around 250 pupils in the Junior School. Girls have been part of Sixth Form life for over 45 years and from 2020 were able to join from Years 3 and 7, where they account for between a third and half of the intake. We will be fully co-educational by 2025.

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.
