Brighton College

This exceptional school is the highest achieving co-ed in the country, offers some of the glitziest facilities and is forward-thinking in the extreme. Brighton College is a broad-minded, well-balanced place for bright kids.

    Brighton offers means-tested support of up to 100 per cent fee remission to day pupils only (boarding is not covered by its bursary provision).

    Bursaries are offered from Years 7 to 13 and the level of support offered is reviewed every year, with the school providing ‘greater emphasis’ to those in GCSE or A- level years.
