Image Description

Eastbourne College is now offering fully funded sixth form places to highly academic pupils as part of its 150th anniversary celebrations. Aptly named the Professor Soddy Awards (Soddy was an eminent former pupil and Nobel Prize winner in chemistry) these places are available to very motivated academic boys and girls. This superb opportunity is open to pupils from the state sector who would attend the sixth form as a day pupil or boarder starting in September 2018.

Headmaster Tom Lawson commented: “We are extremely excited about the launch of the Professor Soddy Awards. The standard of applicants for scholarships is always extremely high and we are looking forward to adding this new academic award which offers unprecedented levels of financial support. The College is a very welcoming place and we very much hope that a number of exceptionally gifted pupils take up this opportunity.”

The deadline for applications is Monday 12 February 2018. For more information and to apply, please contact the Admissions department on 01323 452323 (admissions or visit the College’s website

About Eastbourne College

Eastbourne College is fortunate to be stunningly situated on the edge of Eastbourne, yards from the sea and the glorious South Downs. Students can flourish in this wonderful setting with access to a safe town centre that allows them to become more independent but without the concerns or restrictions of isolated rural or urban schools. With over 620 pupils in the school, it is very much a community rather than an institution, where every child is known extremely well. Boys and girls, brothers and sisters, day pupils and boarders are totally involved in a school that believes wholeheartedly in full co-education and full boarding.
