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 starting at FREE! 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!
Hurrah!! See you at The Cage from 9am folks!
We were due to begin the outdoor skate season today (6th Apr 2014) with lessons in the cage from 9am. We are very disappointed to have been stopped by the rain.
Think sunny thoughts people!
Be ready for next week and be sure to check here and FB for news.
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.
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.
Every year Eastbourne Skate School teach thousands of people to skate, of all walks of life, ages and size! We always emphasise safety, fun and learning in our lessons and a big part of that is lending out all of the protective gear for free to everyone that, for one reason or another has not brought their own (yet!).
Each year we have to renew a good portion of the gear and often members of the skate community donate their old helmets, wrist guards, elbow and knee pads to us to help continue the good work.
If you’d like to donate any of your old kit to help keep the skate community safe, please bring your old gear to any of our instructors or sessions. We’d love to put it to good use.
Our Friday night Battle/Hastings Roller Disco and Saturday night Eastbourne Roller Disco at Hampden Park are open as usual for the half term. We look forward to welcoming you to our venues at around half five – there’s plenty of skate hire and protective gear so spread the word to all your friends and family.
As usual birthday party groups are welcome at discounted rates, or you can go the “whole hog” and book a professionally run tailored private Roller Birthday Party just for you. We even do the party invites!
