About Us

Welcome

to Eltham College

Eltham College is a successful, independent and diverse school for boys and girls aged between 7-18 years old located on a beautiful 70-acre site between Eltham and Mottingham in South East London.

With a rich history dating back to its founding as the ‘School for the Sons of Missionaries’ 180 years ago in 1842, Eltham College has undergone remarkable transformations. Today, we proudly stand as a fully co-educational institution. Our commitment to academic excellence is evident in our students’ outstanding exam results, and we enrich their educational journey with a wide-ranging co-curricular program that encompasses sports, music, drama, and art.

What truly sets Eltham apart is our unwavering dedication to providing exceptional pastoral care and support. Our innovative and comprehensive pastoral system ensures that every student feels supported and valued throughout their educational journey.

Eltham College has grown significantly over the years and is proud to educate a thriving community of over 1,000 students. Our reach extends far beyond our immediate vicinity, drawing students from diverse areas such as Bromley, Chislehurst, Blackheath, Greenwich, and Dulwich. More recently, we have welcomed students from London Docklands and the City of London, reflecting our school’s reputation for excellence.

As our students progress through Eltham College, they embark on a path to success that often leads them to prestigious Russell Group universities. Some choose to pursue their passions in the performing arts and music, finding their place in leading colleges and conservatoires. Our global perspective is evident as well, with students venturing overseas to study at renowned American and European universities, broadening their horizons.

We regularly compete in regional finals across various sports, including hockey, netball, and skiing. Some of our most talented athletes rise to the occasion and compete at the highest levels, representing our school with pride.
