Blue Sky Learning

Eastbourne College is a community with excellence at its core, and a clear focus on health, happiness and a holistic education.

An Educational Community

Time and again, visitors to the College comment on what a friendly, open and warm place it is. This atmosphere shapes our behaviour and attitudes.

Our values

Unique Location

Just as the College’s location offers a balance of sea and rolling hills, the bustling town of Eastbourne and open country (with the South Downs National Park on our doorstep), we challenge and support our pupils. Whether a day or boarding school pupil, we focus on high academic achievement supplemented by an unparalleled range of co-curricular activities. The breadth of experience we provide develops integrity, kindness and a resilience that pupils will draw on for the rest of their lives.

The College Character

Superb pastoral care

The house system is the backbone of school life at Eastbourne College. It’s where the day begins and ends, and where pupils ‘come home’ throughout the day and where lifelong friendships are fostered. Boarders and day pupils enjoy a stimulating and safe environment allowing them to develop personally and as a group under the expert guidance of a housemaster or housemistress.

Pastoral Care

Creative arts

Creativity is at the heart of College life. Here at Eastbourne College, we take the Creative Arts (Art, Art Textiles, Dance, Design and Technology, Drama and Theatre Studies, and Music) seriously. We seek to empower our pupils to gain confidence and creativity through expression, providing endless opportunities for growth.
