The 1st XI continued their preparation for the 2015 season with the annual friendly match against the Brighton College Old Boys on Wednesday evening. Returning from their New Year's pre-season camp at Manchester City's Academy training facility, they were keen to put what they had learnt into practice under the floodlights at Whitehawk FC. The Old Boys had brought down a strong team, featuring two past 1st XI captains (Ben Hornby and Harry Herbert) and players who graduated from the College over the last 6 years.

A memorial to celebrate the life and times of Reg Spicer, former Head Porter at Brighton College, was held on 18th January 2015.
Reg's birthday was 17th January and so the family chose this date to celebrate Reg's time with the College, and to scatter his ashes. Reg arrived at the College in 1977, working with Bert Swarbrook until Bert retired in 1988 when Reg became Head Porter until his retirement in 2001. He is remembered with huge affection by everyone who worked with him.
Brighton College is to open a sister school in Bangkok aimed at bringing the best of British education to Thailand.
Richard Cairns, Head Master, has been instrumental in encouraging Brighton College to look to Thailand for its first school in Asia after two very successful openings in Abu Dhabi: "What strikes me about Bangkok is that there is a huge demand for a school where children are genuinely inspired to be the best that they possibly can be. Of course, there are good schools in Bangkok but none seemed to combine both a happy atmosphere and a culture of success. And that is where we think we can make a difference. We have a track record of securing places at top UK and US universities that no other UK curriculum school in Thailand possesses. And we want to replicate that in Thailand for the benefit of both Thai and expatriate children".
The College will swing wide the gates this evening to welcome all to the Midnight Mass in the Chapel. Many of those attending will end up sitting in the wings of the Chapel that were added by Sir Thomas Jackson after the Great War.
