9 October 2019 - Banking, broking and asset management networking

There was a very big turn-out for the latest of our career and business networking events on Wednesday 9 October, with around 60 OEs, parents and current pupils attending.

Over 20 sixth form pupils travelled up from the College to the offices of PwC near London Bridge, where they were able to meet with professionals in the banking, broking and asset management sector.

These networking events are a great opportunity for pupils to get advice and hear about the experience of working in specific professions.

The guest speaker was Simon Cloke, who has spent nearly 30 years in the banking industry. Formerly Global Head of Industrials at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, he was appointed Managing Director of HSBC's Diversified Industries Group in 2005 and is currently responsible for managing HSBC's business with some of its largest house building and building materials clients as well as a number of HSBC’s largest UK corporate relationships.

Simon has also been involved in the governance of several other private and public companies during this time and in particular is a non-executive director of The Restaurant Group plc and a director of a small property development business.

Our thanks go to Darren Meek (Blackwater 1982-87), OE, parent, governor and treasurer of the Eastbournian Society, for arranging for the event to be held at the offices of PwC.

1 October 2019 - More Eastbournian magazines added to digital archive

Following the successful launch of the digital archive of The Eastbournian magazine earlier this year, we are pleased to announce that further editions have been added and are now searchable.

The new issues cover the period from 1954 to 1960, and are in addition to those editions from 1960 to 1991, which had previously been available. 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.

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.
