Eltham College is an academically outstanding independent day school situated just 15 minutes from both central London by train, and from the M25 and the Kent countryside by car. Over the past few years, the school has grown considerably; there are just under 800 students in the Senior School and around 250 pupils in the Junior School. Girls have been part of Sixth Form life for over 45 years and from 2020 were able to join from Years 3 and 7, where they account for between a third and half of the intake. We will be fully co-educational by 2025.
The College has a distinctive character, born out of its Christian heritage, and we continue to focus on the care of the individual. Strong pastoral care, an energetic House system that promotes collegiality, and a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere make the school a happy and vibrant place for students and staff.
Eltham College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All applicants should read the school’s Safeguarding Policy, which is available on our website, and are required to declare any criminal convictions or cautions, or disciplinary or regulatory proceedings related to young people. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
Eltham College is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from appropriately qualified persons regardless of gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, disability or age. Candidates will be assessed against relevant criteria only (i.e. skills, qualifications, abilities, experience) in selection and recruitment.
