Joining Eaton House at 8 +

THINKING OF MOVING YOUR CHILD AT 8+?

The thoughts of uprooting your child from their current school at 8 years old may seem daunting, but in the independent sector it can be a natural transition for many boys. Eaton House Schools have specific 8+ entry point for boys, who are usually ready to take that next leap forward, both academically and socially.

All the Eaton House Schools stand on two important pillars – academic quality and gold standard wellbeing. We have a heritage that stretches back to 1897, which means that generations of Eaton House boys have gone on to Eton, St Paul’s, Westminster, Tonbridge, Winchester, Dulwich, King’s College Wimbledon, and many other fine schools.

Our boys are treated as individuals and we take a considerable amount of time to learn what makes them ‘tick’ and what their talents are, so that they may be noticed, praised and developed. This is the key to our consistent academic success over many decades, and we are proud to see children of all backgrounds and abilities shine with this level of personal care. Our world-class academics are balanced by a co-curricular and extra-curricular programme that develops the boys for life. We have dedicated spaces for Science, DT, Art, Music and Drama and the boys are offered a huge range of co-curricular trips, clubs and activities, with up to 20 exciting after-school clubs usually offered each term.

Whether you choose Eaton House Belgravia, a large townhouse in Eaton Gate, or Eaton House The Manor, a wonderful Georgian building on a 1.5 acre site facing Clapham Common, you will have made a decision to give your son the best start for independent senior school examinations at 11+ or 13+.

With periods of home learning a possibility at this time, it is comforting to know that Eaton House Schools is the forefront of technology, with a Remote Learning Hub that allows pupils to receive a full education during periods of lockdown or isolation.

Eaton House Schools offers an exceptional environment in which to work, play and maximise your son’s talent.
