Project 150

Project 150 was an exciting and transformative development which coincided with the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the College. It provided the school with three desperately needed new facilities:

  • a sports centre
  • an academic and IT centre
  • a new dining hall and social centre

The first phase of the development, known as the Nugee Building, opened on 10 January 2017, with the maths and English departments on the first and second floors. The Warren Atrium links the new building with the College Theatre (Big School) and the pavilion, Long Room and Snowden Room. The ground floor includes the school shop, ICT suite and additional classrooms. The formal opening of the Nugee Building took place on 26 April 2017, with guests of honour Miss Patricia Nugee (daughter of former headmaster John Nugee after whom the building is named), and the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. You can read more about the opening here.

Phase 2 of the project is the Winn Building, named after the College's greatest living benefactor, David Winn OBE (School 1954-59), President of the Eastbournian Society. This building includes a sports centre, swimming pool, fitness suite, dance studio and squash courts, as well as a dining hall, cafe and function rooms. It also houses the new College reception and further classrooms. It opened at the beginning of the summer term on 16 April 2018, and it was formally opened by Dame Katherine Grainger on 21 June 2019.
