** Please note that from September 2020 Eltham College will accept applications from both girls and boys for entry into Year 7, as well as the existing co-educational Sixth Form.

Eltham College is a school rich in history, variety, vitality and care. Throughout its history, students from Eltham College have been recognised for their scholarship and commitment to serving others; they have gone on to give leadership and service in many areas beyond school life.

The aim of the school is to provide a balanced and stimulating education based on Christian principles and practice. Founded in 1842, originally for the sons of missionaries, it is now an independent day school for boys and 60 Sixth Form girls in the Senior School.

The school is set in over 60 acres of playing fields and is unique in that it has excellent facilities, yet with only 630 pupils in the Senior School it is small enough to care and every pupil is known and valued as an individual. It is committed to academic achievement of the highest standards, but its yardstick is always the individual's potential. Students are encouraged to perform at their highest level both academically and in the breadth of school life. In the range of activities here, from sport, through outdoor pursuits, to our justly celebrated music, art and drama, there is scope for everyone to realise that potential.

Facilities include a purpose built sports centre housing a 25m swimming pool, weight and conditioning suite, dance studio and sports hall containing an indoor cricket centre. The extensive playing fields have newly refurbished pavilions and changing rooms and there is a full size all weather pitch for hockey as well as a multi-use games area, senior and junior cricket nets and tennis courts. The school has a large, bright library over three floors, a dedicated Music School and separate theatre and, most recently, an art gallery which hosts regular exhibitions and is used for cross curricular teaching.
The school has over 30 musical groups performing regularly both in and out of school, a busy drama schedule in the performing-arts centre and regular international travel across all areas of school life. Standards in sports and games are high and there are national and regional representatives in many sports. There is a substantial commitment from pupils to local community service and charity work plus there are a wide range of vibrant clubs and societies.
