Headmaster’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to Brighton College Dubai!

Brighton College is the UK’s top co-educational school and is internationally renowned for its academic excellence. As the latest member of the Brighton College family of schools, Brighton College Dubai will seek to combine academic excellence with a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities, all underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and enthusiasms of each child. Every boy and girl at Brighton 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.

In September 2018 our school will open with a talented and diverse community – our pupils reflecting the able and aspirational youth of Dubai, and our staff drawn from the very best of British and international educators.  Our pupils will be offered a varied and challenging learning environment based on Brighton College’s innovative curriculum leading to IGCSE and A-levels, and balanced by a co-curriculum of music, sport, drama and the arts that will amaze and inspire in equal measure.

There are many unique features of a Brighton College education: academic excellence, grounded personal qualities and appreciation of community, as well as careers advice and progression to the world’s top universities. We understand that aspirations beyond school are individual and need to be open to broad horizons. That is why entrepreneurship and innovation are distinctive features of a Brighton education.

During their time at Brighton College Dubai we will seek to harness our pupils’ capacity and confidence to succeed in a fast-paced and multi-challenging world. Their self-confidence, worn in a manner of respect and understanding of those around them and the wider world, will prepare them for success in adult life in any setting and place.

A unique advantage of a Brighton College Dubai education will be our partnership with the Centre for Excellence in Arabic Language, Culture and the Arts – an innovative resource for the wider Dubai community, which will enhance the Arabic elements of our curriculum, its rich culture, history and place in the world.

Our ambition is to educate the whole person. We know how it can be achieved, we know it requires great commitment, and we know it can bring great joy to learning and life in general.

I hope that, in sharing our aspirations, you will get in touch with us so that we can help you make the best choice for your son or daughter in the critical next step of their education. Success for them in this is important to us. I look forward to meeting you.
