Steeplechase 2015

On Thursday 12 February over 500 pupils and numerous staff members gathered on the glorious South Downs to embark on the 2015 College steeplechase. Junior pupils completed a relatively short course while the intermendiate and senior pupils were appropriately challenged by more demanding routes across the Downs and along the Eastbourne seafront.

Everyone completed their races on the Western Lawns, opposite the iconic Grand Hotel, where a large group of staff, parents and pupils waited to cheer home the runners.

Bex Towey and Luke Howard, winners of the senior events, were both triumphant for the second consecutive year.
