Eastbourne College

Founded over 150 years ago, today Eastbourne College reaches out like never before, connecting its boarding and day pupils with the raft of opportunities that abound within a few hundred metres of the school; and beyond. The learning environment is second to none thanks to a state-of-the-art £33 million development, an outstanding, supportive house system, and a timetable which optimises educational contact time and provides guided optional Saturday morning enrichment sessions before fixtures.

Eastbourne College believes exceptional talent should be supported and nurtured. The College believes that the major contribution we can make to scholars is the development of their specialism through tailored provision and support. We have strong programmes in place for scholars of all disciplines to develop their talents and help them to inspire those around them.

In line with most comparable independent schools, most awards are between five per cent and 20 per cent, although these values can be supplemented by a means-tested bursary.
