The aim of this website is to provide an information
and contact point for former students and masters
of Eastbourne Grammar School (1899-1977)

and Sixth Form College.

With the end of the ‘old’ School in 1977 the Old Grammarians’
Association became moribund until a social ‘get together’ of
a few friends ‘sparked off’ a rebirth in 1991.

The following year saw the publication of three Newsletters
containing news and reminiscences which were sent to all
whose names and addresses were supplied to the Secretary
by his contacts.

Membership now totals over 650.

The Committee, encouraged by this response organised a
luncheon, which was held at ECAT on 30th October 1992
and attended by over 100. The ‘old’ School at Eversley Court
and the ‘new’ School, now the Sixth Form College, were open
for visiting, and an exhibition of photographs also promoted

In succeeding years we have continued the twice yearly
Newsletters, the Annual Dinner and organised an Annual Golf
Tournament and a Cricket team which plays two or three
games every summer. On occasions we have raised soccer
and bowls teams.

Whilst social and sporting get-togethers prove popular, we
have extended our interests by organising cricket competitions
for local schools; (we award the Dyer, Mallen, Romans and
Matthews Trophies), offering encouragement to School Music
and administering a Trust Fund providing financial help to
students at Park College, the successor to our School.

If you are interested in joining the Eastbourne
Old Grammarians’ Association please complete the
online Registration Form.

It costs nothing to join the Association as Members agreed
to rely on ‘Voluntary’ donations made on Registration rather
than annual Subscription to finance activities (more especially
the Newsletter).

On receipt of your Registration Form we will send you a copy
of the most recent Newsletter and a Members Address List.

A Standing Order Mandate, as suggested at the 2000 AGM,
can be also be sent should you wish to use it.

The Association is anxious that as many former pupils and staff
know of its existence, so if you are an existing Member and
know the whereabouts of some of your contemporaries why not
pass on their details or persuade them to get in touch.
