Eltham College aims 'to be a thriving and leading institution among London day schools' and this mission is supported by seven specific aims which 'serve as the foundation for the school's long-term plans and guide decision-making and action' – love of learning, co-curricular, pastoral care, passionate staff, beliefs and values, strong community and excellent facilities.
The school is part of a group – the Eltham College family of schools – with prep school, Blackheath Prep.
Headmaster Guy Sanderson says: "We want all our students to have a positive approach to life and to adopt values and behaviours that will help and guide them towards leading happy and fulfilled adult lives. Our students' academic success grows from their love of learning. We challenge their assumptions of how this fast-changing world works, and give them the tools they need to explore it themselves."
"We place a strong emphasis on self-respect, humility and the service of others. We help them to aspire to shape their futures and to become the very best versions of themselves as citizens of a globalised and diverse world who choose to make a positive impact."
The school is a registered charity managed by a board of governors. Read more on the Charity Commission website.
The school was last inspected in February 2022. Read the inspection reports on the school's website.
