Eastbourne College pupils often comment that they never have to compromise on academic learning for co-curricular interests; they can do it all and also have time for socialising.

The weekdays are packed full of structured learning opportunities, and the weekend offers a chance to refresh, recharge and be ready for the week ahead.
Apart from sports-fixture commitments, the new weekend programme encourages pupils to take ownership of designing their own enrichment programme using organisational and planning skills essential for life after school.

The Saturday programme offers pupils choice from a healthy menu, blending these options with time to relax and time to enjoy the company of family and friends.
