Brighton College Preparatory School is an independent preparatory school in Brighton, England and is the junior section to Brighton College. The School teaches children from approx. 8 to 13 years.

The Good Schools Guide in a description said: "This School seems such a fun place to be" [1]

Houses[edit]

  • St. Andrew's
  • St. David's
  • St. George's
  • St. Patrick's

Houses are Mixed, and have no physical buildings associated to them within the Prep School, and unlike with their Senior School counterparts, they are more of an administrative tool than a community structure. The Houses are primarily used to promote and uphold friendly competitive spirit, especially through competitions.

Location[edit]

The Brighton College Prep School occupies a site immediately to the East of the Brighton College Senior School's Campus, on Eastern Road in Brighton.

Buildings[edit]

The School used one main building as its centre of operations, and most teaching and indoor activities occur here.

The Children can utilise the College Facilities across the Road. Lunch is served for the children in The College Dining Room. Dinner and Breakfast are not open to the Prep School as it does not offer Boarding.

Activities[edit]

Sports[edit]

The Prep School takes full advantage of the Senior School's capacity and level of provision for sporting facilities. The Children use the "Home Ground", which is the College's match pitch for both training and matches.[2]

Coaching is also provided by College instructors, which provides pupils with an arguable higher standard of coaching to many other local school, who rely on teachers to dual-role.

Music[edit]

Music at the Prep School is strong with a large array of ensemble opportunities.

  • Two Choirs
  • Two Selective Choral Groups
  • Two Orchestras
  • Concert band
  • Other short term musical projects in small ensembles.[3]

The Department is supported by 31 music staff.[3]

Drama[edit]

The School puts on a Musical each year known as the 'Senior production'. Many pupils from all age groups at the school will take part in acting, musical and stage management roles.[4]

Students can also take LAMDA classes.[4]

Design & Technology[edit]

The School's Design technology club has achieved consistent success in National Competitions.[3]
