LATEST NEWS

10 April 2019 - Archive editions of 'The Eastbournian' magazine now available online

Archive editions of The Eastbournian magazine are now available to be viewed online.

Working with the digital scanning company SDS Heritage, the College archives have made available copies of the magazine from 1960 to 1991. We also have the complete first edition of the magazine from May 1870.

You are able to browse through issues on screen or search for specific text to retrieve an individual article.

The service is free for Eastbournian Society members to use; you just have to be registered on the Eastbournian Society website. If you have not already registered, please go to our Members page for information on how to do this. Once your registration has been processed and you are logged on, you can get access to the digital archive with details of the username and password by going to the Digital Eastbournian page.

We hope this will be a useful tool, not only for those interested in the history of the College but also for those Old Eastbournians who want to look back to their schooldays and see if their own name is mentioned in print!

The College archives are keen to add more issues of The Eastbournian, and would like to hear from you if there are particular years or decades that you would like added. This will help us decide how to expand the digital archive in the future. Please contact archives@eastbourne-college.co.uk with your suggestions.
