Brighton College Prep School is a co-educational school for children aged 3-13. It is the main feeder school to Brighton College, one of England’s leading schools. The College educates 1,000 pupils aged 13-18 alongside a Lower School, educating 100 pupils aged 11-13. The Prep School educates 500 pupils aged 3-13.

Brighton College Prep School provides an inspiring education that aims to prepare pupils for life in our College and beyond. We are proud to be part of a school which is one of the most innovative and forward thinking in the country.

The Prep School helps all children to believe in themselves and to excel in their own individual way.  The teaching philosophy allows pupils to be individual whilst enabling them to develop and progress at a rate above and beyond their own expectations. Within each year group teachers aim to give children the best possible start to life, both in their academic grounding and in developing their values and beliefs. The school motto is well known by pupils who pride themselves on trying to:

Be Kind.

Be Curious.

Be Confident.

Be the best you.

The school is based on two sites within the vibrant city of Brighton; our Pre-Prep educates children from Nursery to Year 3, after which they progress on to the Prep site for Years 4 to 8.  Pupils benefit from use of facilities at the College, including the Chapel, the Sarah Abraham Recital Hall, the dining facilities and the new School of Science and Sport. Our sports fixtures are played at the Jubilee ground pitches located nearby in the South Downs.

Brighton College Prep School is progressive and pupil orientated. Each individual is recognized for their own achievements, resulting in a happy, caring environment. The staff body is also a positive and vibrant one; equality, diversity and respect are championed and celebrated by all.

The Brighton College family of schools also includes St Christopher’s, Handcross Park and Brighton College Prep Kensington. Overseas, the College has opened Brighton College Abu Dhabi, Brighton College Dubai and Brighton College Al Ain in the UAE, Brighton College Bangkok in Thailand, Brighton College Singapore and Brighton College Hanoi in Vietnam (opened in September 2023).


The College enjoys its location in Brighton, one of Britain’s youngest cities and one of the most vibrant in Europe.

In 2017, a national survey identified Brighton as the “happiest” city in the UK. It is close to the beautiful South Downs, within easy travelling distance of London (about 50 minutes by train), and about 30 minutes from Gatwick Airport. Portsmouth, Newhaven and the Channel Tunnel provide accessible links with the Continent.

Brighton is also a university city, and the College has good links with both the University of Sussex and Brighton University.
