about us

Welcome to the arts, communication and media area, a vibrant part of Sussex Downs College, Eastbourne. We offer a superb range of courses, levels, subjects, opportunities and pathways through the creative curriculum. These include all aspects of art and design, creative media production, film and media studies, music and music production, drama and theatre studies, performing arts, dance and production arts.

With over 1,000 students specialising in creative subjects, we offer a unique sixth form experience, quite unlike school or smaller sixth forms
