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.


1 July 2020 - The Foundation 2020 Challenge

We are pleased to announce the Foundation 2020 Challenge. David Stewart, Foundation and Eastbournian Society Director, writes:

No one can pretend that the Covid-19 pandemic will not cause financial hardship.

Over the years, the College has had a long track record of supporting its own community.

For the next month we will be raising funds to support boys and girls who will be taking their GCSEs and A-levels in 2021 and whose families have been severely impacted financially by the pandemic through no fault of their own – this is our Foundation 2020 Challenge.

If you would like to show solidarity with these Eastbournians and help them fulfil their potential by completing their education at the College, then please click on this link to donate:


You may have family or friends who are interested in golf? We are running an auction entitled 'The Tremendous Twelve' featuring some of the leading golf courses in the UK. If you would like to support the Foundation 2020 Challenge in this way click on this link:


All bids should be sent to me at das@eastbourne-college.co.uk. I will reply to you personally and let you know whether a higher bid is required! The auction will close on Saturday 11 July at 6.00pm. If you are the lucky winner, I will notify you by 7.00pm on 11 July and link you up with your host so arrangements can be made.

Thank you for your support.
