Our Location

LTC Eastbourne is in an 18th century mansion, once home to the Duke of Devonshire, near the centre of Eastbourne, one of the most beautiful towns on the south coast of England. Did you know, Eastbourne is one of the sunniest places in the UK?

You will enjoy spending time inside the historic school building and our 10-hectare private garden.

Accommodation

We have dormitory-style residential accommodation above the school for students ages 10-16.

If you are age 13+ you can choose shared homestay accommodation with a local homestay provider. We usually recommend homestay for 17 year-olds.

All homestay providers hosting under 18’s undergo a police check.

Please note that for legal reasons, we cannot offer residential accommodation or homestay in one house for more than 28 days. If you stay longer than 28 days, you must change your accommodation.

Social Programme

You will have a full programme of afternoon and evening activities, plus a half-day excursion every Wednesday and a full-day excursion every Saturday.
