Eltham College is an independent day school, set in over 60 acres of playing fields, for boys from the age of 7 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18 in the co-educational Sixth Form.
Guy enthuses about the school: “There is nothing like a really broad extra-curricular programme for teaching resilience, building character and teamwork. At Eltham College that complements the outstanding academic programme that really stretches each student so that we bring out the best in everyone. It is genuinely rare to find a school where that all happens and Eltham College is different in that sense. That’s because of the size – it’s a medium-sized school, so we know all the boys, know all the girls in the Sixth Form and there is a real strong sense of individual care.”
Eltham College was inspected in March 2014 and the resulting Independent Schools Inspection (ISI) report concluded that the academic achievement at the school, the curriculum offered, the teaching, the personal development of the pupils, and the pastoral care are all excellent, a term which is equivalent to the level “outstanding” used by Ofsted in state school inspections.
