Eaton House Belgravia is an outstanding independent school and nursery, educating boys between the ages of 2 and 11. Founded in 1897, the school has become part of the very fabric of Chelsea and Belgravia, offering a diverse and intellectually stimulating education in the heart of London. Despite its reputation for academic success, the school is notably non-selective at entry to reception. Small class sizes and an individual learning plan for each pupil ensure that each boy is stretched and supported according to their individual needs.

The school is ambitious for its pupils, committed to igniting each boy's potential beyond academic excellence, into the realms of first-rate music, drama, creative arts and sport. Mr Ross Montague, Headmaster from January 2024, intends to maintain the traditional, academic values of Eaton House Belgravia whilst bringing a fresh eye to the school. He will build on the school's philosophy of 'stretch and support'. Mr Montague says, "we want Belgravia boys to be leaders in life; successful, public-spirited, adaptable and innovative."

The boys benefit from an excellent network of pastoral care, in which it is emphasised not only that the staff look after the boys, but that the boys look after each other. This, in addition to dedicated form teachers and an extensive wellbeing hub, ensures that every child can flourish emotionally as well as academically. Pupils are therefore well prepared to go on to their senior schools. These consistently include a range of top schools, such as St Paul's, Westminster, Dulwich College, King's College Wimbledon and Summer Fields.

Famous alumni that have passed through Eaton House Belgravia include Sir Laurence Olivier, Eddie Redmayne OBE, Bear Grylls OBE, Anthony Asquith and Philip Pullman CBE FRSL. The schools' most important legacy, however, continues to be the many happy children who have left Eaton House Belgravia with a passion for learning.

Entrance procedure

Nursery and Reception: Entrance to our nursery and reception is non-selective. Registration is accepted from birth and early application is advised. We welcome boys to our co-ed nursery in the September following their second birthday. The majority of our nursery pupils go on to attend reception, where they are joined by those who register for 4+ entry.

Years 1 to 6: Children registered to join Eaton House Belgravia after the initial reception entry point will be invited to visit the school for an admissions assessment before a place can be offered (subject to availability). Prospective pupils are asked to complete a formal 8+ assessment for external entry into Year 4.
