What says..

There is a focus on developing cross-curricular thinking skills via ‘philosophy for children’ whilst following a growth mind-set approach of challenging every boy to believe intelligence isn’t fixed but can be developed. The boys we meet who strike us as fairly free and easy with their views are wholehearted in their praise: ‘The teachers are very kind; when you are feeling stressed they help you’ and ‘They want you to get the best marks possible’. The parents we spoke to…

What the school says...

Eltham College Junior School celebrates the individuality and differences that boys have and it is an exciting and dynamic place for them to enjoy learning a wide range of skills and to develop broad interests.

lt is a short walk away from the Senior School and is set in its own playing fields and therefore it has been able to maintain its own distinctive character and identity, while at the same time benefiting from sharing many of the excellent Senior School facilities. The pupils' transfer to the Senior School is also eased with the establishments of these links.

Respect, trust and care are the cornerstones of our community. In our secure and stimulating environment boys meet new challenges, are encouraged to excel and enjoy productive relationships with each other and staff, allowing them to become well-rounded personalities. A very strong partnership exists between home and school and plays a vital part in establishing the right principles for all children to understand.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2010, Mr Edmund Cavendish (50s) MA (Oxon) PGCE. Studied modern history at Queen’s College, Oxford. Deputy head at the senior school for five years. Prior to this, he was head of history and then head of sixth form during 16 years at Ipswich School, following four years at Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh. This junior school setting was new for Mr Cavendish, but he relishes the enthusiasm of the younger boys and feels his experience of the senior school – he still teaches the Oxbridge historians – is helpful in enabling him to bring the two schools together, very much a focus since the arrival of Mr Sanderson, the new head of the senior school. He dips in and out, ensuring he teaches something to each year so that he gets to know...
