Under 18s at St Giles Eastbourne

Our Eastbourne school welcomes students aged 14+ all year round. Independent, mature juniors can stay with a carefully selected host and choose from the wide range of courses available in Eastbourne.

The school is primarily designed for those aged 18 and above (no 24-hour supervision for under 18). We ask parents and guardians of all students under 18 read and understand our Under-18s guidelines before enrolling their child.

Students under the age of 18 will be taught in separate classes. However, if a student aged 16-17 would like to take a Cambridge exam course, he/she will be able to join lessons with students aged 18+

Please visit our Under 18 pages for these guidelines and more details.
