Eastbourne College

Eastbourne College, Old Wish Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 4JX

Description

There are not many top independent schools in Britain where you can take a six-minute stroll and find yourself on the doorstep of a national park, an international tennis venue, a county cricket ground, two challenging golf courses, award-winning beaches, theatres, a modern art gallery, a brand new shopping centre (with cinema) and a mainline station to London (85 minutes), London Gatwick Airport (55 minutes) and Ashford International (direct trains to Paris).

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 College's learning environment is second to none thanks to its £33 million Project 150 redevelopment, an outstanding, supportive house system, and a timetable which optimises educational contact time, provides guided optional Saturday morning enrichment sessions, and promotes a busy calendar of competitive sport and inclusive social.

A tradition of turning out good people

The College has got into a tradition of stimulating academic success while developing people of good character; good people that others want to be with.

In 2019, almost 40 per cent of A-level grades were awarded at A* or A. Results in maths, the sciences, modern languages and the creative arts continue to be beacons of excellence, with 100 per cent A* to B grades in key facilitating subjects. Pupils leaving the College achieve A-level grades that enable them to access top courses at the leading universities at home or abroad while also enjoying a diverse and successful wider school life. Healthy learning for the long term and an extra-mile approach to pastoral care are the guiding principles that underpin an Eastbourne College education, which consistently ranks in the top 4% nationally for academic value added.
