The school was founded in 1945 and it started as Erith Technical School. In 1960-61, the Beths moved to its new site due to its expansion and was renamed Bexley/Erith Technical School. It was then renamed to include the boys’ high school hence the name B.E.T.H.S. (Bexley/Erith Technical High School for boys), and became a grammar school a few years later in 1976. In 1995, Beths was awarded the Department for Education’s Technology College specialist status, giving the school extra funding for Science, Maths and other STEM subjects.
