The East India Club and the university women's club

Old Eastbournians can take advantage of the 'J7' membership scheme at the East India Club or the Young Members' Scheme at the University Women's Club.

This gives you full club membership at a greatly reduced rate, with no joining fee and nothing more to pay until the December following your 25th birthday. However, you must take up this offer within 18 months of leaving school.

The East India Club (right) is one of the great clubs of St James's. It has a special relationship with the 250 public and independent schools of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC).

The elegant club-house in St James's Square is in the heart of London, and facilities include dining rooms, bars, a library, drawing rooms, gymnasium, snooker room and 67 bedrooms.

To apply, please complete the application form on the East India Club website and send this with a letter of proposal from the Headmaster (no seconder is required).

The University Women's Club (left) is situated in Audley Square, Mayfair. It has a lobby lounge and bar, dining room, drawing room, members' room, garden and 22 bedrooms.

It has provided a London home for women lawyers, scientists, academics, doctors, business women, archaeologists, writers, politicians, musicians, and many others since 1886.

For more information about the Young Members' Scheme please contact the Membership Secretary at with a letter of proposal from the Headmaster.
