About Eastbourne College
The College was founded by the Seventh Duke of Devonshire and other prominent Eastbourne citizens in 1867. For a hundred years, as a school for boys, it was proud to educate, amongst many successful old pupils, two VCs, a Nobel prize-winner, a President of the Royal Academy, and a Lord Mayor of London. In 1969 it was one of the first HMC schools to welcome girls into the sixth form.
The seaside town of Eastbourne is an ideal location for a boarding school, offering as it does a wide range of attractions. The College is situated on the western tip of the town, a block or two from the sea and ten minutes' walk from the town centre, with its main-line trains to London Victoria, and from the Downs.
