School Description

Eastbourne College is situated on the edge of Eastbourne, metres from the sea and the glorious South Downs. Pupils can flourish in this wonderful setting with access to a safe town centre that allows them to become more independent but without the concerns or restrictions of isolated rural or urban schools. With over 630 pupils in the school, Eastbourne College is very much a community rather than an institution, where every child is well known and valued.
