• Clive Nicholls QC (Ch. 1946-50)

    Friday, 24 February 2017

    The Old Brightonians office is very sad to announce the death of Clive Nicholls QC (Ch. 1946-50) twin brother of Colin Nicholls QC (Ch. 1946-50). Colin informed us earlier in the week and sent us the following notes to share with the OB community. There will be a private funeral with only family flowers, but a memorial service will be held in London later in the year. Messages of condolence can be sent to the OB office and we will pass them on to the family. Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.

  • Peter Dutton Briant (Ch. 1934-37)

    Wednesday, 04 January 2017

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Peter Dutton Briant (Ch. 1934-37).

  • It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Old Brightonian and past Governor, Ian Wilfred Dodd (Junior School, 1950-1956, Hampden House, 1956-1960). After having suffered a heart attack, Ian died on Monday 17th October, 2016.


    A Celebration of Ian’s Life will be held in Brighton College Chapel at 4.00pm on Thursday 10th November, 2016 following the Crematorium Service (for family only). OBs, friends and family are welcome to join us for the chapel service and reception afterwards.  

  • Many names have strong associations with Brighton College. They are woven into the fabric of the school through plaques, memorials and the names of buildings. One example is Williams, from which our second-oldest girl’s house takes its name. Peggy Williams was born in Chichester House in 1896, and, rather amazingly, was able to attend the opening of ‘her’ house in 1990. Much of Peggy’s long life was connected to the school, as she married Reverend A J Williams, College Chaplain and Housemaster of Wilsons (a now extinct house).

  • Bill Blackshaw, who was Headmaster of the college from 1971 to 1987 died peacefully at home in Rottingdean on Friday 27 May. He had a huge impact on the school during his 16 years of headship, increasing numbers markedly, introducing co-education in the Sixth Form and overseeing the greatest building programme of the post-war era.
