Brighton College pupils have achieved wonderful success both within and outside the classroom this term and one exceptional example is the 1st XV rugby team, captained by Marcus Smith (Upper Sixth, Leconfield), who are unbeaten in 24 matches. They have been victorious against strong rugby schools including St John's Leatherhead, Dulwich and Hurstpierpoint to become the first college unbeaten side since 1981/2.
Head Master, Richard Cairns was delighted to host this year's OB Kuala Lumpur Dinner on Thursday 13th December. Old Brightonians were joined by Simon Smith (BC Common Room 1973-2011) and Tony Whitestone (Common Room, 1971-2006) for a wonderful evening both reminiscing about the past and hearing about the exciting future plans for the College.

Dear Old Brightonians,
This has been a year in which once again the focus has been on creating an environment where every child feels valued for who he or she is. That’s not always easy amidst the maelstrom of hormonal change that bedevils teenagers (and no doubt drives one or two parents to distraction). But I think we succeed far more often than we fail. And I see this each day in the genuinely warm and supportive relations between pupils. Sometimes, we forget that this same focus on self-worth is also one of the key factors in pupils’ academic success. This is not very surprising. Young people who are happy in their own skins are always going to be more open to throwing themselves into their studies or indeed into their sport, music, drama and dance.
The Head Master Richard Cairns, and staff of Brighton College were given a warm welcome to Hong Kong by the community of pupils, parents and alumni at the Brighton College Dinner on 10th December at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel.
The Pioneers Club was once again warmly welcomed by the Savile Club for this year’s London Luncheon, hosted by Gavin Henderson, CBE (Le. 1960-65).
If you are planning a visit to Brighton and would like a tour of the College and your old House, it is much better to contact us first so that we can be prepared for your arrival and have the time to show you around properly.
We are always delighted to see OBs back at the College but it can be disappointing for both you and us if we cannot allocate enough time to your visit due to other commitments. These days we are governed by strict health and safety laws, safeguarding and security measures which mean that visitors have to be accompanied around the campus.
These rules apply as much in the holidays as in term time as the College has various commercial lettings involving large numbers of children. It is a frustrating situation for all of us when you are not able to see all that you want to, and we would appreciate your consideration in helping us make it easier for you.
Please telephone Angelina in the OB office to let us know when you would like to visit on 01273 704 226.
The Development and Alumni Relations Office's primary role is to support the Head Master and Governors in realising the long-term plans of the school, by raising non-fee income, and by building a network of strong relationships among parents, staff, Old Brightonians and other friends and supporters.
