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:

1 July 2020 - Cancellation of OE reunion

We are sad to announce that we have decided to cancel this year's Old Eastbournian reunion, which was due to have been held on Saturday 5 September.

As this will be the first weekend of the Michaelmas term, the College does not want to do anything which will put pupils or OEs at any risk.

This means that the Arnold Embellishers AGM, which is normally held on reunion day, has also been cancelled. Members will be informed separately about alternative arrangements that are currently being planned.

By September 2021 we will certainly all be in need of a celebration. Therefore the 2021 reunion will not be restricted to any particular year groups but will be for OEs from across the generations - it should be a spectacular occasion!

Further details of this will be announced in the next edition of the Old Eastbournian magazine, which will be published in February 2021, as well as on the website and in our regular monthly email newsletters next year.
