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 September 2019, the College changed the structure of the school week, boosting academic contact time and opening the door to families who want to spend more time together.
The sea inspires us. Endless horizons reflect the opportunities for all our pupils, the limitlessness of their aspiration. We think of ourselves as the ‘blue health school’, harnessing our coastal location to the benefit of our children’s physical and mental wellbeing. Eastbourne College has a tradition of innovation, enthusiastically leading UK education in the direction of balanced co-education, equally cherishing our boarders and day pupils, aiming for what we are proud to call healthy learning for the long term.

Endless Horizons Endless Opportunities
Eastbourne College, where else in Britain can you take a six minute stroll (or less) 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 state of the art cinema and a mainline station to Gatwick (51 minutes), London (Clapham, 77 minutes) and Ashford International (66 minutes)?
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 development, an outstanding, supportive house system, and a timetable which optimises educational contact time during the week, provides optional guided enrichment sessions on Saturday mornings, and promotes a busy calendar of competitive sport and time for socialising. ‘Healthy learning for the long term’ is the prevailing ethos that places Eastbourne College in the top four per cent of all schools nationally for academic value added, year after year.
