Other Information: "At Eltham College every pupil is known and valued as an individual. With excellent facilities, pupils are encouraged to perform at their highest level; in academia, sport, and our celebrated music, art and drama, there is scope for everyone to realise their potential. All parents want the best experience for their children and at Eltham College we aim to provide the right environment for that to happen. Our size means that we know all the children well and we are able to value them as individuals. All the pupils get a chance to take part, individual talents are nurtured and developed, and everyone (including the parents) enjoys a sense of belonging. We are committed to academic achievement of the highest standards, but our yardstick is always the individual's potential. Our pupils are encouraged to perform at their highest level both academically and in the breadth of school life whether that be sport, music, art or drama. There is scope for everyone to realize that potential. Eltham College is a medium sized school of about 630 pupils in the Senior School and 200 in the Junior School; it is not too big to be large and impersonal, yet the facilities are excellent, and the school has a feeling of quality about it. Having boys only below the Sixth Form enables us to concentrate on what boys do well, while the co-educational Sixth Form provides the ideal environment to prepare for the next step towards university and life beyond Eltham: this really is the best of both worlds. Academic Life at Eltham The academic success of the pupils at Eltham is underpinned by the promotion of a positive work ethic, combined with high expectations. We aim to work towards the top two grades at GCSE and at A level in the Sixth Form; this enables our pupils to read the degree courses they want, at the universities they wish to attend. The aims of the curriculum are to give each pupil a broad education, especially in the early stages, and to develop the individual's intellectual powers to the best of their ability. Years 7 to 9 (Lower School) continue with a broad curriculum which enables the boys to choose their GCSE subjects with confidence. The Middle School Years concentrate on the public examinations with IGCSE being taken in some subjects where we believe it provides a better course for our students. Twenty subjects are available at GCSE, and pupils normally take at least ten. The Sixth Form with a choice of twenty-three academic subjects looks towards Higher Education, with the majority of students aiming at selective universities and a good number regularly securing places at Oxford and Cambridge. At all stages we aim to inspire and stretch bright young minds. We believe that the size of the school does matter: Eltham remains small enough for every pupil to feel that he or she has received individual attention. Eltham's academic departments are responsible for teaching the curriculum to GSCE or A-Level. Departments also play an important role in school life as a large number of the clubs and societies and other extra-curricular activities in the school will be run by a department.
