Seven out of every ten pupils achieve their first choice university
More than 90 per cent of leavers go on to university, while others might opt for an art foundation course or drama college, and some might go directly into a business apprenticeship. Seventy per cent of pupils achieve their first choice university, typically within the Russell Group. Fifteen students have gone to Oxbridge over the past three years.
The College’s care for pupils extends well beyond UCAS applications and acceptance by universities; in addition to the help given to the Upper Sixth, some 20 former pupils every year are also given guidance or higher education and other options.
Eastbourne College is proud of its reputation for preparing pupils for life.
Old Eastbournians leave the College as confident young people equipped with the requisite values, skills and qualifications to embark on the next phase of their lives. Whilst most enter higher education, some choose alternative routes to their chosen careers.
