Brighton College pupils are encouraged to be first-rate versions of themselves, not second-rate versions of someone else. This is at the core of our school ethos and so we place great emphasis on mutual respect and acceptance.  Young people thrive when they are happy. Life at the College is defined by everyone feeling valued for who they uniquely are.  We want our pupils to develop their talents to the full, in doing so they are expected to share those talents with a generosity of spirit and an enthusiasm to benefit others. Their success in excelling both in and out of the classroom is driven by our understanding of being a family school with a strong sense of community at our heart.

"The learning is fun and interesting and I am always excited to go to my lessons.” Year 8 Pupil

We provide a caring, supportive and tolerant community in which your son or daughter will thrive and love to learn, in which there are no stereotypes and where every achievement, however small, is noticed. From this we expect our pupils to have a love of learning for its own sake, which will lead them to excel in formal examination settings in later years at school and beyond.
