About us

Eton was founded by King Henry VI in 1440 and lies just across the river Thames from the pretty Berkshire town of Windsor. Throughout its history Eton has been one of the leading independent schools in the UK and it continues to provide a stimulating all-round education, coupled with academic excellence. Eton is a boys’ boarding school with around 1,300 pupils. Our pupils join at the age of 13 (with a few joining in the sixth form) and continue right through until they are 18.  

Ours is a modern, forward-thinking school which embraces new opportunities within teaching and learning. Tradition remains important and still shapes some of our guiding principles, but it is a willingness to innovate which has seen the school thrive for almost six centuries.

At Eton College we aim to offer all of our employees enjoyable and satisfying jobs and there is a variety of positions available. Eton College offers a wide range of benefits, including an 11% employer contribution to your pension (with 4.9% employee contribution), free eyecare tests, a cycle to work scheme and free access to the College’s sport and leisure facilities.
