Message from the Head Master
A very warm welcome to Brighton College Dubai!
We are fast approaching the opening of our school in September. I am delighted that we already have a talented and diverse community across the pupils and staff who will be here on day one. Our pupils are drawn from the able and aspirational youth of Dubai, and our staff from among the most inspirational of British and international educators.
The balance struck at Brighton College in providing true academic excellence, 92 Oxbridge places in the past three years, alongside a real commitment to an understanding of the impact that kindness has among our community, provides the basis for the outstanding education demonstrated already at our sister schools here in the United Arab Emirates, in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
Brighton College, named the ‘most forward thinking school in the UK’ by The Week magazine in 2017, takes our challenging curriculum, leading to GCSEs and A-levels, and compliments it with an exciting co-curriculum including music, sport, drama and the arts. It is designed to amaze and inspire in equal measure. Our Creative Learning Centre, a unique feature of Brighton College schools, provides the ability for learners to learn about their learning and that of others. I hope you will visit us to see this great resource to the school in action.
The key features of a Brighton College education define our school: academic excellence, enabling our pupils to access the world’s leading universities; an innovative and creative approach to learning, to ensure that our pupils are ready for the world of tomorrow; the importance of kindness; and encouraging boys and girls to aspire to make a real difference in the lives of others. However, we also understand that children’s aspirations beyond school are individual and that they need to be open to broad horizons. That is why entrepreneurship and innovation in learning are key features of a Brighton education.
Brighton College Dubai provides your son or daughter with the full Brighton College experience. Their talents and potential is our focus and as they progress through school, our pupils harness their capacity and confidence to go forward in a fast-paced and challenging world. Their self-confidence, worn in a manner of respect and understanding of those around them and the wider world, prepares them for success in adult life as citizens of the world.
In addition, a unique advantage of a Brighton College Dubai education will be the Center for Excellence in Arabic, Language, Culture and the Arts, which supports the delivery of the Arabic elements of our curriculum, enabling our pupils to develop a fuller appreciation of the culture, history and place of Dubai within a global context.
Our goal 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. Our ability to make a difference to the lives of our pupils has been an inspiration for our pupils to go forward and make a difference to the lives of others.
I hope that, in sharing our aspirations, you connect with us by registering your interest here.
I look forward to meeting you and your son or daughter.
