It was founded in 1858 and until 1870 was houses in St Mary's House, (the old Vicarage) Shoreham-by-Sea, which had previously been the original home of both Lancing and Hurstpierpoint Colleges. The Architects of the College were William Slater and R H Carpenter. The foundation stone was laid on 12 July 1864. The buildings form a complete H with open sides north and south. The School House, which is one of the wings extending south, was built in 1864-5, the Headmster's House balancing it between 1865 and 1870, as also the Dining-room with the Assimbly-room over it in the central block; the North School (now the Junior School) in 1880, the Chapel completing the central block in 1855-83, the Cloisters joining the School House and the Headmaster's House along the south face of the central block in 1892 and the New Wing balancing the North School in 1926-7. The buildings are in Gothic style and are of red brick with tiled roofs. The Chapel occupies the east end of the central block comprising 4 bays flanked by buttresses each containing a window of Decorated type. It extends into a further 2 bays east of the south east or west Wing. Above the roof is a base for a tower but no spire.
