Eaton House School was founded in 1897 and it is with great pride that I carry on this wonderful traditional education more than 120 years later. Whilst the school has expanded across two sites in Clapham and Belgravia, and the education has become more rounded, interactive and high tech over the years, the fundamental core ethos remains the same.
We aim to provide a first-class education, striving for excellence in all academic, cultural and sporting pursuits, giving every child the confidence to discover where their gifts lie and to enjoy their talents. Wellbeing is at the core of everything we do. We are non-selective at our 3+ and 4+ entry points, because we believe that children develop emotionally and academically at different paces and without the pressures of early exams. We also champion single-sex education, as we know from numerous studies that younger children learn best when alongside peers of the same gender.
Our results speak for themselves. Despite being non-selective our girls and boys obtain outstanding academic results and receive a wide range of scholarships to superb senior schools, including Westminster, St Paul’s School, Dulwich College, James Allen’s Girls’ School (JAGS), Winchester, Wycombe Abbey and Eton.
Alumni that have passed through Eaton House include former Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, plus many great talents such as Laurence Olivier, Eddie Redmayne, Bear Grylls, Anthony Asquith and Philip Pullman. Our most important legacy, however, continues to be the many happy children who have discovered a love of learning at Eaton House Schools and go on to pass on their knowledge to many future generations.
In June 2021, Eaton House Schools became part of the Dukes Education family, working together in pursuit of giving every pupil an extraordinary life through education. We are also delighted to share that we have recently been announced as finalists for two Independent Schools of the Year 2021 Awards, for Outstanding Student Wellbeing and Outstanding Response to COVID-19.
Our Head of Admissions, Miss Sam Feilding, can help guide you through our admissions process. Join us for one of our regular Open House events, and discover for yourself what a very special environment this is. More information can be found on our Admissions page.
