Brighton College, the UK’s top co-educational school, opened its fourth sister school in Dubai in September 2018, following in the footsteps of Brighton College Abu Dhabi (2011), Brighton College Al Ain (2013) and Brighton College Bangkok (2016). Brighton College Singapore opened in August 2020.
Brighton College Dubai is comprised of a Preparatory School (for pupils aged 3 to 11) and a Senior School (11-18) and is a leading Independent-style British International School located in the United Arab Emirates. With a prime location, it will eventually educate 1,400 pupils across the 3 to 18 age range on its striking campus in the centre of Dubai, one of the world’s most innovative and exciting cities. It offers its pupils a world-class British education in a co-educational setting, leading to IGCSE and A-level studies, and entry to the world’s leading universities.
A key component of Brighton’s internationalisation is the importance it places upon ensuring that its sister schools are authentically interpreting its values and ethos. Each school combines academic excellence with a wealth of co-curricular opportunities, all underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and enthusiasms of every child and each values the importance of the individual: every boy and girl in the Brighton family of schools is valued for his or her own sake and 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.
Brighton’s success is built upon recruiting genuinely inspirational teachers and leaders who can enthuse about their subject and will help to create an exciting and vibrant intellectual environment in which children can explore their interests, develop their existing talents and acquire new ones.
Brighton College Dubai has classes from Foundation Stage 1 through to Year 12 having this year opened its Sixth Form, which offers a comprehensive programme of courses with the aim of being the leading British international school in the Emirate of Dubai with heavily subscribed applications for entry.
