Under 18s at St Giles Eastbourne

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

However, the school is primarily designed for those aged 18 and above, and we do not provide 24-hour supervision for those under 18. We therefore ask that parents and guardians of all students under 18 read and understand our Under 18s guidelines before enrolling your child at our school.
