Sgt. Instructor S J Beckett served the College and its community from 1919 until 1956 and is remembered with great fondness by many Old Brightonians. Last month we launched an appeal for funds for a Memorial Bench for Sgt. Instructor S J Beckett.
We are delighted that we have now raised the full amount for a bench, and will be placing an order this week. For those of you that haven't yet donated to the bench, but would like to make a donation, we will allocate all funds received to a Sports Scholarship Fund, in light of "Sarge's" sporting activities within the College community.
PAUL LEWIS was born into a family of professional musicians in Brighton, England, in 1943. As a child he was fascinated by history and ancient buildings, reluctantly learning the piano from the age of nine. At twelve he saw the Shakespeare films of Laurence Olivier with Walton's music and immediately realized he had to be a composer. He purposely avoided all formal training, choosing instead to leave school at fifteen and enter music publishing to find out how the music business worked from inside.

We had a lovely visit at the College today with our Australia OB Ambassador Darren Curtis (S. 1990-95) and James Borbone (C. 1991-96) After a tour of the College and coffee with the Head Master we had a convivial lunch in The Ginger Dog.

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. The College's future and yours is inextricably linked to our past; past pupils are a key feature in our history, and also have a crucial role to play in Brighton’s ambitious future. Our collaborative projects to refurbish the school and provide new and exciting spaces for our pupils can be seen and enjoyed across the College campus, the Alexander Visual Arts Centre, the Skidelsky Building, the ever popular Strength and Conditioning Room, and of course through our latest project, the Jubilee Pavilion at the New Ground. Generations of OBs have helped their modern counterparts by supporting the College in a myriad of different ways, ensuring that the opportunity to benefit from a Brighton College education is passed on.
We are always keen to hear your news and stories, comments and suggestions, so please stay in touch. And you are, of course, always welcome to visit the College, meet our present-day pupils, and see some of the newer developments along with places that will forever remain familiar. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
