The College offers a gold standard curriculum, GCSE and A-level being the core assessments taken at the end of Year 11 and Year 13 respectively. Gold Arts Award and the popular Extended Project Qualification are also an option. The College has one of the most comprehensive co-curricular programmes of any independent senior school and ranks in the top four per cent in terms of ‘value added’ (the measure of how much improvement a pupil shows against their original predicted grades); the majority of subject areas adding a whole grade boundary to predicted grades on average from GCSE to A-level.
Games & The Arts
Pupils’ lives at Eastbourne are centred on their houses and boys and girls find themselves very much part of a house community. In both boarding and day houses, pupils receive the unstinting support of a housemaster or housemistress.
Over 70 per cent of pupils go on to Russell Group universities every year.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
The College has recently completed a £33 million redevelopment, the Winn Building, which has transformed the main campus into a bright, contemporary learning space with facilities on a par with the best in Britain.
