This handsome anthology, published to coincide with the school's 140th anniversary, will contain a wonderful collection of intimate, moving, funny and possibly outrageous memories from OEs, staff, parents, pupils and friends of the College. "Thirty years on, I look back at my days at Eastbourne College with considerable affection. Memories include treading the Big School boards, with much enthusiasm and little or no talent; cricket on College Field in the glorious summer of 1976; missed tackles in rugby; and the influence of outstanding teachers like Dickie Brent." - Adam Mynott, BBC East Africa Correspondent, Powell 1971-76. "I remember particularly the friendliness of the school and the three years of unbeaten rugby success which our team enjoyed from U16 to 1st XV level. Over these times I made my closest friends, and also ended up in a job that I love: playing professional sport." - Hugo Southwell, Professional rugby union player (Edinburgh & Scotland), Wargrave 1993-98. "My overall memory is of a splendid staff and civilised boys and girls. I consider my time at Eastbourne to be the best part of my life, for which I am extremely grateful." - Michael Birley, Headmaster 1956-70.
"The College remains delightfully fresh in the memory as a place where everyone is genuinely at ease with each other and talent flourishes." - Charlie Bush, Headmaster 1993-2005.
