Crown Woods College (formerly Crown Woods School) is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form located in the Eltham area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich in London, England.[1] The school is built upon the land that was formerly King Henry VIII's hunting grounds (hence 'Crown Woods'). As well as educating pupils from Eltham, the school also attracts pupils from nearby Falconwood.

Crown Woods College reopened in new £50million buildings designed by Nicholas Hare Architects in 2011, and is structured into four 'home schools', all of which are housed in separate buildings. The scheme received a RIBA London Award in 2012 and was commended at the Civic Trust Awards the same year. Three of the schools are for pupils aged 11 to 16 and pupils are allocated to the schools based on ability, skills and interests. The fourth school is a sixth form centre for 16 to 18 year old students.[2][3]

The school offers GCSEs, BTECs and vocational courses as programmes of study for pupils. Students in the sixth form have the option of studying from a range of A Levels as well as further BTECs and vocational courses. Crown Woods College specialist Humanities and has additional facilities and resources for the specialism.[4]
