The Eastbournian Society brings together Eastbourne College’s extended family of Old Eastbournians, current and former parents and staff, local people and businesses and other friends and supporters. Our aim is to maintain close links with any person or organisation who wishes to be associated with the College.


20 January 2021 - The Old Eastbournian magazine for 2020 has been published

The Old Eastbournian magazine, the journal of the Eastbournian Society, has been published and will be posted out to members at the beginning of February.

A PDF version can also be downloaded from the Old Eastbournian magazine page.

The magazine includes news and features about OEs and members of staff, and College highlights for the 2019-20 academic year. We also pay tribute to two major figures in the history of the College, David Winn and Donald Perrens.

The cover reflects what has been an extraordinary year, in which the College had to close its doors to pupils in the summer term and move teaching online. We also look back 80 years to when the College, facing the threat of invasion, had to evacuate to Radley for the duration of the war.

Society members in the UK should receive their copy in the first two weeks of February. If you do not receive one, this may be because we do not have a current address for you or because you have previously asked to read the magazine online rather than receive a hard copy by post.

Society members who live outside the UK may have to wait a few weeks before their copies are delivered by post.

Please contact David Blake by email to drblake@eastbourne-college.co.uk if you have any questions about the magazine or want to check whether you are on the mailing list or not.
