Curriculum

From Sculpture to algorithms, and from the Industrial Revolution to the reactions of acids, we offer a broad and challenging curriculum throughout the Senior School that seizes the students’ attention and propels them to success.

Academic excellence has always been at the heart of the education we offer, and we expect every student at Eltham College to achieve to their potential. Students learn in small classes with specialist teachers who love their subjects and want to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with every student.
