About BCIS

Brighton College International Schools (BCIS) was established in 2009 as a subsidiary of Brighton College to plan and set up British-curriculum schools around the world under licence to Brighton College. Each overseas school is privately and independently owned, and is operated by our investment partners.The schools are managed by boards of governors, which include representatives of Brighton College in the UK.


BCIS works with its partners to replicate Brighton College UK's extraordinary academic success, its track record of innovation, and in establishing Brighton’s unique warm and supportive atmosphere. We help our partners to set up schools which combine academic excellence with a wealth of extra-curricular activities and courses which enable pupils to grow as individuals and reach their full potential.


BCIS recruits the Head and teaching staff of each school. It monitors educational standards, provides support and advice to Heads and Bursars, and encourages all schools within the Brighton College family to seek ways to derive mutual educational benefit from their relationship through pupil and staff exchanges, sports and music tours and professional in-service training.


Brighton College Abu Dhabi opened in 2011. Our second sister school, Brighton College Al Ain, opened in the city of Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in 2013. Together, they currently educate almost 3,000 girls and boys aged 3 to 18. Brighton College Bangkok opened in the Thai capital in 2016 and will educate 1,500 pupils aged 2 to 18. Our fourth sister school, Brighton College Dubai, opened in 2018 for pupils aged 3 to 18.
