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.

16 February 2018 - The Old Eastbournian magazine for 2017 has been published

The Old Eastbournian magazine, the journal of the Eastbournian Society, has been published and has been posted out to members this week.

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

The magazine reviews our events and activities throughout 2017, and also includes news and features about OEs and members of staff, OE sports reports and an overview of life at the College in the 2016-17 academic year.

There are also updates on the Project 150 development, including the opening of the Nugee Building last April and the latest news on the progress of the Winn Building, which will be opening this summer.

Society members who are UK residents should have received their copy this week. If you have not, 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 on 01323 452262 or 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.
