Shoreham College - Set mainly in a Tudor manor house within 11 acres of beautiful grounds between the sea and the Sussex Downs, Shoreham College is an independent day school for girls and boys aged 3 to 16, where all abilities are supported and challenged.
The school is a charitable trust whose trustees form the College Council. The current headmaster is Mr Taylor-West.
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.
Deus Horam Dat, which translates as God gives us the hour.
The school operates a house system, Grenville, Nelson , Rodney and Raleigh, to which a pupil upon joining remains attached throughout their school career.
