Supporting excellence

Eastbourne College believes exceptional talent should be supported and nurtured. The College believes that the major contribution we can make to scholars is the development of their specialism through tailored provision and support. We have strong programmes in place for scholars of all disciplines to develop their talents and help them to inspire those around them. 

In line with most comparable independent schools, most awards are between five per cent and 20 per cent, although these values can be supplemented by a means-tested bursary.

We support scholars of all disciplines to develop their talents and inspire those around them.
