"100 years on from the outbreak of that terrible war, I want to create a visible memorial to the sacrifice and suffering of the 147 Old Brightonians who never returned to this place. In so doing, I hope we will provide every pupil here with a daily reminder of how very lucky we are.
To that end, the College is commissioning a sculpture of a Brighton College boy, based on a photograph of 1914. I imagine him leaving school at the end of his sixth form years, ready for the world beyond. Never to return. Beneath the sculpture will be the simple words: He Left This Place Never to Return. Be Grateful.
I hope that you can help us to realise our hopes for this project by ‘sponsoring’ one of the 147 names. I shall certainly be doing so."
Head Master Richard Cairns

Old Brightonians have a profound affect on College life for our current pupils, blazing a trail for the opportunitites that await. Graham has left his mark on the College in a more physical way than most as his practice, Allies and Morrison, were the architects behind both the Simon Smith Building and the most recent boarding house New House. We caught up with Graham to find out just how he grew from Junior school pupil to award winning architect...
Following the truly awful tragedy that unfolded during the Shoreham Air Show that took the lives of so many - including young footballer Jacob Schilt as he travelled to play for Worthing United - the Robert Eaton Memorial Fund is organising a sponsored walk from the crash site to the Worthing ground, thus covering the journey that Jacob didn't finish.
I am writing to report some excellent GCSE results, with a record number of A* grades. I suspect they will again be the best of any co-ed school in England and certainly among the top three such schools.
100% of grades were at A*-C, with a record number of A* grades: almost a thousand!
Dear Old Brightonians,
I bring news of terrific A-level results. By every measure, these are comfortably our best ever:
A*/A 82.7% (74.15% in 2014)
A*/B 98.1% (94.0% in 2014)
A*/C 100% (98.9% in 2014)
To give you some indication of how well the Upper Sixth has done, the A* - B percentage places Brighton ahead of where Westminster, Eton and Winchester were last year.
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.
These pages are intended as a resource for OBs wishing to keep in contact with each other and the latest developments at the College. Even though you have finished your education at Brighton College, you are of course a member of the Old Brightonians for life. You can update your details direct in our Members' Area, search for school friends and book tickets to OB events.
We are always keen to hear your news and stories, comments and suggestions, so please stay in touch. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
