Shoreham College was founded in 1852 as "New Protestant Shoreham Grammar School" by some "leading gentlemen of that town" and later renamed "Shoreham Grammar School". It was founded with the intention of educating local boys in classics, and "other branches of a liberal education" with a central focus on the Bible. The foundation was backed by townspeople and local clergymen against puseyism and the revival of Catholic traditions in the Church of England, in particular "High church". On 27 November 1852 an advertisement for pupils was published in the Brighton Herald.
The school operates a house system, Grenville, Nelson , Rodney and Raleigh, to which a pupil upon joining remains attached throughout their school career.
