What says..

The children are focused and engaged, polite and sparky – the eldest ones very aware of the regular exams and what hangs on them. Prep school kids are in silence as they snake in single file across the road to the main college. The head feels being reflective is the unofficial 10th item in the BCPS code of conduct. They do have an enormous amount of fun too; the teaching is inspiring and embellished with plenty of non-curriculum activities – from sleeping overnight on the Golden Hinde II in London to dancing with…

What the school says...

A vibrant, all-action family school, Brighton College Prep School is well known for its welcoming atmosphere and its high standard of pastoral care. We want our pupils both to enjoy school and to be inspired to achieve their full potential. Drawing upon our own outstanding resources, as well as those of the senior school, we provide a very wide range of opportunities and ensure that these are underpinned, always, with the greatest support and encouragement.

We aim to help each pupil to build a warm and strong character. The pursuit of whole-hearted effort is our priority; whilst the school praises and encourages high standards of achievement. We believe that what you are is even more important than what you achieve.

The prep school provides a superb, all-round education that stimulates, challenges and captivates. The excellent academic curriculum is complemented by a wealth of sport, music, creative and performing arts and a wide range of extra-curricular activities; trips, activities and competitions abound. Most of our pupils transfer to Brighton College Senior School.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head

Since 2013, Harry Hastings (40s), came from eight years at Cumnor House, where he was assistant head, head of history, director of sport and plays. Energetic, enthusiastic and entrepreneurial, in his last year there, he created Harry Hastings’ History Heroes, a cross between Top Trumps and Trivial Pursuit, sparked by a quiz played to occupy kids on history trips. He’s sold it now, relieved to be once more focussed on his school full time – but it’s a good example of his skill at coming up with creative solutions and ensuring they stick. His introduction to teaching was through gapping at his old prep, and his path to this first headship has led him through Exeter and Oxford Universities, a prep in Devon, Peponi House in Kenya and the Dragon School.

Special Education Needs

Brighton College specialises in helping bright dyslexic children to achieve their academic potential whilst, at the same time, providing them with a stimulating environment in which to develop their strengths and talents. The school has its own Dyslexia Centre which supports children from each of the three schools of Brighton College: the Pre-Prep School, the Prep School and the Senior School. Up to the end of Year 6, pupils receive a combination of in-class support in English and small group withdrawal for specialist teaching. From Year 7 onwards, full members of the Dyslexia Centre receive all their English lessons in the Centre in groups no larger than 9. In addition, most (but not all) dyslexic pupils substitute their modern languages time for additional support. For those pupils whose needs require less support, ad hoc provision is available. In the sixth form, an AS/A Level study skills course is available, together with individual support lessons. Pupils with other special educational needs are the responsibility of the three Special Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs). The school is always happy to discuss individual needs with parents, although it recognises that the level of provision it can currently offer may not be sufficient to support all special educational needs. The school has a separate department for the support of those pupils whose first language is not English. Please see Brighton College for response to questionnaire which covers all 3 schools. 09-09
