EtonX is a British education technology company founded by Eton College in 2015. Our mission is to create innovative software and high-quality course materials that allow students to develop the skills they need for their future success. We have supported teenagers all over the world with our online courses and bespoke learning platform.

Everything we do is underpinned by these key principles:

High-quality content

Innovative technology

Proven pedagogy

EtonX and Eton College

EtonX is an online subsidiary of Eton College. We work with the team at the college in a number of different ways.

Course development

Each course has its own Eton College Course Director, with expertise in that field.  Course Directors are involved in syllabus and content development,  and they also introduce and summarise each section of learning within the online course materials. Our courses include activities undertaken at Eton in lessons, tutorials and in extra-curricular activities that reflect Eton’s own teaching ethos.

Outreach programmes

In 2020, EtonX courses became a key part of Eton College’s Social Vision which aims to address education inequality in the UK.

Through the College’s Partnerships programme, we have made our courses available free of charge to UK state schools and a number of charitable organisations that promote social mobility and aim to improve access to higher education.

To date, more than 400,000 students have been given free access to our courses.


Safeguarding is in our DNA, it’s built into our technology and our processes, guided by the team at Eton College, so you can expect students to be as safe as they would in their own school.

See our full Safeguarding Policy.
