Welcome to the Eastbourne Skate School website – the Internet home of skating in Eastbourne and across Sussex.
SK8school has been teaching Eastbourne to skate since 1995 and we have the most qualified and experienced instructors around. We are the only Internationally recognised Skate School in Eastbourne and the only group qualified to teach skate lessons beyond beginner level in the area.
SK8school has a team of 10+ Instructors, Coaches and Consultants covering much of Sussex and South London, with Skate Lessons, Skate Events, Roller Discos and Roller Birthday Parties, Hen Parties and Skate Hire.
Our Group Eastbourne Skate Lessons are the most affordable in Eastbourne , with a voucher from participating skate shops. Our Family Eastbourne Roller Disco also runs all year. We are a Child and Family Friendly Co-operative of skating professionals ready to get your life rolling!
This years Sports Festival was as usual fully booked for SK8school at Hampden Park Sports Centre. We ran lessons and games for all ages ahead of the weekly roller disco and even managed some Dancing!
A great atmosphere and a great fun family pursuit – take a look at the photo’s and see what you missed. If you were there then feel free to tag your selves in the photo’s and Videos on our Facebook page.
Our main weekly lessons move outdoors on SUNDAY April 6th at 9am to the Cage on Royal Parade at Fishermans Green.

Eastbourne after school skate clubs.
Laura Thompson is one of the founding instructors in SK8school and also a qualified PE teacher, so no surprise to find her running as well as on skates.
This year she’s attempting several half and full marathons here’s what she has to say about her latest efforts…
It is now under 4 weeks until the London marathon & I am training longer & harder than ever! Please support me and my cause by donating to a tremendous cancer support charity that helps to build self-esteem and support the lives of those who have suffered misfortune and the life-changing effects of cancer.
I am 30 this year and want to do something significant and memorable. I have committed to the challenge to train harder than Ihave ever trained before in order to prepare myself to run 26 miles in the London marathon. I would only ask that friends and family would kindly support my cause and help to raise money for an amazing charity and sponsor my event.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Thank you for supporting me and my chosen charity. Laura xxx

This year Laura will continue her Eastbourne Skate Lessons outdoors specialising in Kids Skate Camp and Beginner Adults. You can book her on the contact us page.
Watch this space! Our outdoor lesson program starts in April and will feature all the usual quality you’ve come to enjoy with SK8school with the return of the Sunday morning Lessons at the Skaters Cage at Fishermans Green.
Additionally we will have some new 3 day (or in fact night) courses and of course the fantastic half day street wise course. Which is fantastic preparation for the forthcoming Skaters Treasure Hunt and the Eastbourne Carnival Parade.
Summers nearly here – be prepared to roll it!
SK8schools after school skate club program is rapidly expanding across Eastbourne, Hailsham, Polegate, Bexhill, Battle and Hastings. If you’d like SK8school to run an after school club in your area you’d better get in touch fast as we are rapidly running out of available days for the September Term.
Our weekly clubs begin with lessons and games, ending in a full mini roller disco each week, so there is a measurable and controlled progression with a fully qualified experienced instructor each week.
