Prestigious boarding school Eastbourne College was originally designed to teach boys from families of the British aristocracy and was opened in 1867.

The main principles on which school education is built are courtesy, the pursuit of excellence, kindness, involvement in social life and education. This credo is rigorously followed by all teachers and administrative staff, the same postulates are mandatory for all students.

Curricula are designed not only to provide a solid foundation for academic knowledge, but also to comprehensively develop each child, to give him every opportunity to manifest his talents, abilities. In their free time, students can participate in ​​various electives, circles, sections, go on interesting excursions, hikes and expeditions, take part in entertainment and cognitive activities. Each teacher sincerely cares about his charges, stimulates them to achieve high important goals, emphasizes every success and respects the individuality of the child. Here, students are taught how to receive real pleasure from education, to instill a steady motivation for further self-development and learning.

The statistics speak about the quality of academic preparation. For example, in 2013, at the A-level level, more than half of the graduates received the highest scores. Most often the former pupils of the school enter the prestigious and ranking universities of the Russell Group - only in the last three years the Oxford and Cambridge students have become approximately 20 Eastbourne college graduates. The percentage of students who successfully enter the chosen university the first time, is as much as 70%!

The principle of education in the school includes the formation of necessarily small classes: so teachers can more carefully and "point" distribute assignments for students, monitor the correctness of their implementation, success and difficulties. An extended school day helps to properly allocate educational periods and rest, so that children do not overwork, they do not lose their level of care, they easily and quickly memorize information and learn with great pleasure.
