This claim by the headmaster of Brighton College, Richard Cairns is admirable and ambitious:
‘Every child at Brighton College is valued for his or her own sake, encouraged to develop his or her talents to the full in a community where there are no stereotypes and where every achievement, however small, is noticed.’
It is a forward-thinking school, where academic achievement, independent thinking and curiosity is fostered and encouraged. In the College for example, a ‘trouser uniform’ and a ‘skirt uniform’ are available to all pupils regardless of sex, but they must stick to a consistent choice.
On making an enquiry, the school will take your details and invite you to an open morning and taster day. Taster days are fun, informal days for families interested in joining Brighton College. They offer a chance for children to get to know staff and other pupils.
You must book an open morning and can do so by completing this form.
To book a taster day, contact: 01273 704201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, you might like to arrange an individual visit to tour the College (with a College prefect) and meet the Headmaster of the Lower School. Families are advised to booked for a tour well in advance and should call 01273 704201 or email email@example.com
Once you have visited you can then register. Once your child is registered, this means you have officially expressed an interest in joining the College, and will then be invited to attend the Assessment Day.
All pupils sit papers in maths (multiple-choice), English comprehension (multiple-choice), and English comprehension (with written answers and a creative writing piece), alongside a Non-Verbal and Verbal reasoning test.
All children are automatically assessed for an Academic Scholarship through the papers they sit on the Assessment Day. There is an opportunity to apply for an All-Rounder Scholarship, through assessment in art, dance, drama, music, sport, or a combination of these elements. The College also offers a Chess Scholarship to pupils who are able to show exceptional potential.
