Brighton College was named England's Independent School of the Year 2019 by The Sunday Times - the only school with an international family to have won the accolade more than once.
For over ten years, Brighton College International Schools (BCIS) has been working with partners to establish leading British-curriculum schools around the world.
Our dedicated and experienced team provides ongoing support to ensure the schools deliver an authentic Brighton College education.
BCIS and its partners are therefore creating an international family of schools where pupils embrace academic excellence in a culture of kindness.
We believe our approach is unique.
What is it about Brighton College that is different?
Parents and visitors comment on the happy, vibrant and overwhelmingly positive atmosphere that exists in all of our schools.
A Brighton College education helps pupils thrive academically and personally. Pupils engage with the real world and are encouraged to develop a sense of purpose that puts their learning in a healthy context.
Parents and pupils tell us the following factors influenced their choice of a Brighton College education. No other school combines these factors.
The pupils' view of Brighton College
Our university team in the UK supports our family of Brighton College schools. Up to date knowledge of what universities are looking for assists our pupils in accessing their first choice destinations.
In the UK, around 20% of Brighton College pupils are offered places at Oxford or Cambridge every year, and over 650 offers were received from Russell Group universities in 2019.
Pupils from the international Brighton College family have left to go to 16 of the top 20 English speaking universities around the world in the last two years.
And we are just as proud of our recent pupils who aspired to other goals realising apprenticeships with Rolls Royce or going on to music conservatoires, ballet schools, academies for art and architecture and vocational callings.
