Eltham College Family of Schools

Blackheath Prep is part of the Eltham College family of schools. Our pupils are able to access a ‚Äėpriority places‚Äô process and sit the Eltham College entrance exam in the September of Year 6 ahead of external candidates. If they pass the entrance exam and accept an offer of a place, this enables the pupil to withdraw from the 11+ process. More information about the Eltham College admissions process is available here. We recognise that some parents may wish to consider a range of senior school options and there is no obligation on our families to send their children to Eltham College. Pupils who wish to include Eltham College as one of their options, alongside other schools, will sit the entrance exam in January as normal. All our Year 6 pupils receive excellent preparation and support during the 11+ process.
