About the Eastbournian Society

The Eastbournian Society brings together Eastbourne College’s extended family of Old Eastbournians, current and former parents and staff, local people and businesses and other friends and supporters. Our aim is to maintain close links with any person or organisation who wishes to be associated with the College.
 
The society has evolved from the Old Eastbournian Association, the Eastbourne College Society (formerly the Collegial Society) and the Foundation and Development Office and now encompasses the activities and administration of all three of these bodies.
