Headmaster Richard Cairns at the Brighton College Commemoration Day 2007

I thought you might be interested to hear that following an independent inspection by Ofsted, the boarding facilities and pastoral care at Brighton College were judged to be 'outstanding'. This is a verdict awarded to very few schools, and comes as news reached us that a league table published by the website www.best-schools.co.uk made Brighton the number 1 co-educational boarding school in the UK.

The college has invested more than £1 million in boarding facilities in the last year to help us meet the unprecedented demand from UK and overseas families wanting their children to board at Brighton. Further places will be available in September 2009 following additional investment. The boarding community here is now larger than anytime in half a century.

If you have not previously considered Brighton College as an option for your children or grand-children and would like the opportunity to see the school, perhaps you would like to attend an Open Morning. The Pre-Prep and Prep Schools hold a joint event on Saturday 31 January from 9.30am - Noon; the College, which now admits children from the age of 11 years, will hold its open morning on Saturday 7 February from 9.30 - Noon, followed by complimentary lunch. If these dates are not convenient, you would of course be very welcome to make an appointment for a personal tour. In either case, please call our Director of Admissions, Mrs Mary-Anne Brightwell on 01273-704201 / 2.

With warmest regards and best wishes for the New Year

The latest Good Schools Guide, the leading schools search and independent guide to education, has now been published and Brighton College receives a very positive report. If you would like to read their independent analysis of the school, please follow this link >>.
