Moira House is set within 15 acres of attractively landscaped grounds, on the outskirts of the historic town of Eastbourne on the south coast of England.
Eastbourne is only 75 minutes from London by train and has easy access to two international airports, Heathrow and Gatwick.
Founded in 1875, Moira House welcomes girls from the age of three to eighteen with full, weekly or flexi-boarding offered from the age of nine. The school takes its name from the first premises in Surrey which belonged to an Irish nobleman from County Down, the Earl of Moira.
We pride ourselves on our excellent pastoral care and careful attention to the needs of each individual and provide as many opportunities as possible for girls to develop their full potential within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The Moira House Academic Curriculum offers breadth and variety. It provides girls with a challenging and stimulating programme of study tailored to their individual needs and interests.
In the Lower forms of the Senior School, the curriculum is broad, following national guidelines, and also including Latin, Drama and the introduction of three separate sciences at Form 3 (year 9).
Twenty subjects are offered for GCSE and a similar number for A level. Pass rates are very high and almost every girl moves on to university, including Oxbridge. The Moira House Career Counselling Service is well-known and highly respected for the quality of the advice and support it offers. Girls aged thirteen upwards are given every assistance towards both higher education and career opportunities.
Overseas students have the support of a strong EFL department which offers intensive courses, Business English and access to the full suite of Cambridge language exams.
Girls with special needs will also receive additional help and support.
Scholarships and exhibitions are awarded at the start of each year and bursaries are also available.
