Eastbourne College Shortlisted for Prestigious National Award
Eastbourne College has been shortlisted in the Tes School Awards 2023.
Hosted by the weekly publication Tes, formerly known as the Times Educational Supplement, the awards celebrate excellence across the education sector.
Nominated for Boarding School of the Year, Eastbourne College pupils take advantage of a plethora of enrichment activities on offer throughout an extended school day under the caring eye of a gold-standard pastoral team.
The school enjoys an excellent reputation for its sense of community and inclusivity and pupils experience a real sense of belonging within the house system.
Tom Lawson, Headmaster at Eastbourne College, said: “We’re delighted to have made the shortlist for Boarding School of the Year, following entries from schools across the country.
“We pride ourselves on offering a truly holistic education with a focus on promoting good health and wellbeing and nurturing every child’s interests equally. Alongside our day pupils, our boarders get to enjoy living in a beautiful part of the world, nestled between the South Downs and the sea – and all the opportunities that brings for outdoor activities.
“Our housemasters and housemistresses are inspiring, caring and tireless supporters of their pupils, so house spirit is always strong.”
The panel of judges for the Tes School Awards includes school leaders, experts and education researchers. The objectivity, professionalism and high standards of the Tes Schools Awards judges and the judging process has helped establish them as a well-respected achievement for any school chosen as a finalist or winner.
Tes editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards Jon Severs said: “With these awards we honour the education community, whom we have served for over 112 years. This year has seen some incredibly high-quality entries. So every teacher and school who has been named in this shortlist should be very proud – it’s a fantastic achievement.
“We are looking forward to showcasing, as we do every year, just how vital our education professionals are to every facet of this country. Teachers, leaders and support staff all play such an important role in schools: this is our chance to say thank you for all that they do.”
The Tes Schools Awards Winners will be announced on Friday 23 June at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Park Hotel.
