Eastbourne College has a strong Sixth Form and is proud of its academic results. Each year around 40 new pupils join the Lower Sixth (Year 12), providing a significant and invigorating addition to the College. For all the new pupils joining the Sixth Form, the College has an extensive induction programme, ensuring that they are able to integrate easily and to settle quickly into the life of the College.
