Elthorne Park High School (sometimes abbreviated to 'EPHS') is a secondary school located just off Boston Road (the A3002) in Hanwell, a town in the London Borough of Ealing. It provides education for pupils aged from 11 (year 7), until 18 (year 13). Year 13 and Year 12 students are sixth form students.

Developments[edit]

Elthorne became a Maths and Computing specialist school in September 2007, and its Sixth Form opened in September 2009.

It became an authorised IB World School in 2008 and once offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as its main pre-University course, as well as a variety of applied and vocational courses. However, this came to an end after three years as, despite many successes for the students after the first year, the IB was not proving popular with students and was found to be administratively cumbersome by staff.

In 2012 a decision was made to change the further education course to A-Levels to attract more students. After the decision was made, plans were created to build a new Sixth Form Block. After receiving confirmation from the Council and Local Residents, construction began in late April 2012. The new block was completed for the term commencing from September 2012/13 and is now in regular use.
