A top cricketing school

The College is named in The Cricketer magazine's Top 100 schools for cricket

For the seventh year running,Eastbourne College has been included in the Top 100 UK Senior Schools for cricket by The Cricketer’s Schools Guide 2023.

It follows an exhaustive process which saw a record number of schools submit entries to be included in the guide. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.

Headmaster Tom Lawson said: 'We’re proud to have a strong tradition of cricket at Eastbourne College, with nine teams fielded every week during the summer term and a truly inclusive approach - every pupil has access to the same facilities and opportunities in cricket, regardless of age, gender or ability.

'We have specialist coaching for girls and they can play in the mixed teams or the girls squad. We’re committed to developing a passion for the sport, which is reflected in the number of pupils who go on to play at professional level.'

Currently six former pupils of Eastbourne College are playing professionally for Kent or Sussex county cricket clubs.
