11 students, staff and parents from Walled Garden West, cycled the 50 or so miles from Seaford College, Petworth to the site of the original school – Corsica Hall in Seaford. They cycled over the South Downs and after setting off at 8am, eventually arrived cold, wet and exhausted at 6pm. The team are raising funds for The C Group, a charity inspiring businesses to support Royal Marines in need. This is the second event completed by Seaford for the charity and Seaford have already raised over £750, and are well on the way to beating the target of £1000. Well done to all those taking part, outstanding effort and a huge amount raised so far! The C Group said: “your support is sincerely appreciated.”
Seaford College moved out of Seaford itself in the 2nd World War – to temporary accommodation in Worthing. After the war was over the school Governors took the decision that there was limited scope to expand in a town centre and began to look for suitable accommodation nearby. Eventually, Lavington Park was found and in 1946 the then Headmaster Charles Johnson, moved the whole school to its current site.
