There are a number of key themes that shape and inform everything that happens at Eastbourne College. They may be observed in the day-to-day operation of the school, in the relationships between pupils, parents and staff and most importantly in how young Eastbournians develop into confident, able and responsible individuals who make life-long friends while at the College.

Pupils thrive in this welcoming and purposeful environment, enjoying all the benefits of the College’s stunning location on the edge of a safe town, within minutes of the sea and the glorious South Downs.

We work hard to provide the best possible pastoral support. Pupils and their families are known and feel known; every individual is valued; strong relationships are nurtured.

The College provides a full education that is so much more than the excellent academic results its boys and girls achieve year after year. Both boarding and day pupils are given every opportunity to achieve across the board: academically, in the creative arts, on the sports field, as individuals and in groups.

They are, without exception, given the time and encouragement to embrace all of the opportunities available to them. We believe that having sufficient time to grow, learn and truly enjoy their pursuits is key to every pupil’s happiness and success.

We believe that it is these unique themes that make Eastbourne College the happy, successful and welcoming educational community that it is.

 "Eastbourne College is highly successful in meeting its primary aim, namely to provide a broad and holistic education which prepares pupils to lead happy, positive and fulfilled lives.  The pupils' overall achievement is excellent, as demonstrated by the high levels of performance in public examinations and within lessons and extra-curricular activities."  ISI Inspection Report September 2014
