Eltham College is a medium sized independent boys' school in south east London with a co-educational Sixth Form. We accept boys from the age of 7 into our Junior School up to the age of 11. They then transfer into the Senior School at the age of 11 when they are joined by external students who are successful in the entrance examination. Please note from September 2020 Eltham College will be welcoming girls for entry into Year 3 and 7, as well as our existing Sixth Form entry.

There are specific hardship funds for which parents may be eligible, dependent upon meeting specific criteria. These include the French Huguenot Church of London Charitable Trust which supports families with (French) Protestant connections. In the past beneficiaries of this Trust have included the sons of Anglican clergy or Protestant church workers. In addition, the Milton Mount Foundation supports children associated with the United Reformed Church and Congregational Churches. A separate application must be completed to apply for these funds.
