As a Brighton College School we have a very close relationship with the College, and many of our pupils leave Handcross Park to attend the senior school. We benefit hugely from this relationship with the College, through the sharing of knowledge and best practice as well as the use of facilities and termly visits for events and lectures. The relationship between us and the Brighton Family of Schools is an advantage to every Handcross Park pupil, regardless of whether or not they go on to Brighton College as their senior school.
The link provides a quality standard, and staff throughout the family share best practice
The Good Schools Guide
Brighton College is one of Britain's leading schools. The College was given the coveted title of School of the Decade by The Sunday Times in 2020. In their Independent Schools Guide, widely acknowledged as the most authoritative survey of the top schools in the country, The Sunday Times names Brighton College as “one of the hottest tickets in independent education.”
The editor of the Schools Guide said that “in the course of the past 10 years, Brighton has become the leading co-educational independent school in the country. Under the excellent headship of Richard Cairns for the past 14 years, the school is progressive in outlook and the children are taught kindness and respect for one another.
The teaching body ranks among the best in England. Every year, more and more of Brighton's pupils secure places at the UK's most esteemed universities, particularly Oxford and Cambridge. The College's former pupils number amongst Britain's foremost business, professional and political leaders; they entrance the nation with their sporting, creative and artistic talent; they are busy shaping the future for generations to come.
All of these are hugely important factors that parents describe as having influenced them in choosing Brighton College for their son or daughter. But above all else, parents remark upon the warm, happy, vibrant and positive atmosphere that struck them the moment they entered through the school's gates. First and foremost, Brighton College offers a caring, supportive and tolerant environment in which children thrive and love to learn.
Brighton College is wonderfully situated at the heart of Brighton's Kemptown, just a short walk from the sea yet only minutes away from the beauty of the South Downs National Park. London is less than an hour away by train. Brighton College's superb reputation draws pupils from across Sussex and, with full and weekly boarding available from age 13, from across London and the South East, the UK and the world.
