About the School
Eltham College is an independent day school which is a member of HMC. They believe that academic success does not grow from examinations but from the love of learning.
Since September 2020, the College has not only accepted girls into its Sixth Form, but its Senior and Junior Schools at the same time. They will also become fully co-educational by 2024.
