School Description

Etlham College has a straightforward commitment: we will give our students an outstanding education, a positive approach and values that will steer them throughout their life. Our founding fathers were guided by their Christian faith; those values are still fundamental to who we are today. We believe in nurturing each student as an individual, and will help them to explore their abilities, find their strengths and thrive. We place a strong emphasis on self-respect, humility and service of others. And we work hard, because we believe in making the most of our gifts every day. We are no exam factory: at Eltham College, our students’ academic success grows from their love of learning for its own sake. We’ll challenge their understanding of how the world works and give them the tools they need to explore it themselves, so they can go as far as they want to. If you like the sound of Eltham College Senior School please come and visit us on one of our Open Days. Eltham College is now fully co-educational and welcomes girls as well as boys for entry into Year 3 and Year 7, as well as our existing Sixth Form entry.

Eltham College Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating


“Great pastoral care and all-round education”

"> I have children at the senior school and have been delighted with it. The pastoral care is great. There are two school nurses who have an open-door policy and a wellbeing centre. Children can just drop in for a drink and a chat with them if they're stressed about anything. It seems that the nurses can overrule just about everyone else in the school; what they say goes! They will arrange counselling if required. Form tutors are great at communication with parents and are quick to act if you ask them for help. Lots of sport and music on offer, and plenty of lunchtime clubs etc. Academically, my children have been stretched and supported. My boys feel proud of their school and feel that they're getting a great education. The only fault they find generally is that the catering is not great, but the school is continually trying out new systems to try to make that work better.
