HistoryEdit

The college opened in 2002, and occupies buildings previously used for secondary school education since 1928.

The school was initially Woolwich County School (created when Woolwich Polytechnic Boys Secondary School, a secondary school established alongside Woolwich Polytechnic in 1897, split into two sites in 1928; the other is now Woolwich Polytechnic School),[2] and later (1935) became Shooter's Hill Grammar School.[3] This amalgamated with Bloomfield Road School (Woolwich Secondary School for Boys) in 1977[4] and reopened as Eaglesfield Secondary School in November 1978,[5] becoming a sixth form campus in 2002.[6]

It is a member of the Sixth Form Colleges' Association.[7]
