The Curriculum

The Good Schools Guide (2021): ‘This is a school with excellent academic outcomes, good value added – and consequently one of really high expectations.’ We believe passionately in the benefits of single-sex education. We do everything we can to nurture every boy to achieve his senior school of choice. Offering a curriculum adjusted to fit boys’ developmental stages, interests and strengths, we create the best start for each boy.

Games & The Arts

Sport is an integral part of life at school, whether boys are representing the school or their House, or simply learning to be part of a team. Nearly 75 per cent of our boys play a musical instrument and every boy has weekly drama lessons. There are many plays and musical events in the school – all to a high standard and greatly enjoyed by parents.

Pastoral Care

We know the boys, share their highs and lows, and are there for them in every way. Pastoral care is intrinsic in all we do, the fundamental cornerstone of the school. Our form tutors and established house system provide the structure for pastoral care, but attention to detail from the staff ensures the care is outstanding. Every boy is supported at EHTM.

Recent Scholarships

An impressive number of scholarships in 2021, including 13 Scholarships and Awards including an Academic Exhibition at Westminster and the Cowdrey Sports Scholarship at Tonbridge.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The Good Schools Guide (2021) comments that Mrs Segrave ‘lives and breathes Eaton House’ having worked in the Eaton House Schools Group since 1993. She asks her staff to consider every single day whether they have made a difference. She feels that: ‘A school is a place where children grow intellectually and emotionally, guided by teachers who are determined that children succeed and are happy.’

Outstanding Characteristics

Academically outstanding. Many generations of boys go to Eton, Westminster, St Paul’s, Dulwich, Tonbridge, Harrow, King’s College Wimbledon, Winchester, and all pupils receive offers to an excellent range of schools. EHTM is one of the top four feeder schools for Westminster and the only one of these that is non-selective at 4+ entry. ‘The pupils demonstrate an outstanding natural courtesy’ (ISI Report). ‘Everyone is so happy and so encouraging’ (Zach, Year 8). Part of Eaton House Schools, which is in turn part of the Dukes Education family.
