Brand new Old Brightonian Izzy Meikle-Small, star of television series The 7.39 and the film Never Let Me Go who has starred alongside Olivia Coleman and Kristen Stewart, said picking up her A-level results was more stressful than appearing in premieres of her films.
For those of you that came in to collect your A-level results today, we hope that you are enjoying the Graduation 2014 Photo Book that we put together for you. If you weren't able to come in don't worry, we will be posting them out to you! The exam office is providing us with a list of who came in, so we will post them out in the next few days.
A warm welcome to our newest members of the Old Brightonians; our leavers of 2014.
The Head Master was on site with Sandy Chenery last week discussing plans for the Music School as the build progresses. Alongside many other advantages that the Music School will bring, pupils will also benefit from state of the art recording facilities, enhancing and refining their performance techniques and of course recording them for posterity. Many pupils compose their own works and the opportunity to perform and record these will nurture their talent, and extend the breadth of their experience. Sandy and his team have spent many hours planning the Music School to ensure that all the pupils needs are met.
The Head Master hosted a garden party for donors to the school last weekend, against the delightful backdrop of the 1st XI playing Bedes. A wonderful afternoon was had by all – prefects hosted tours around the College, peeping in on the rehearsals for the Dance Show in the Great Hall, the spectacular Art Show in the art studio and a look in on New House and Head's House (where some of our donors very much enjoyed playing on the subbuteo table).
Brighton College's most recent boarding accommodation, New House, has been named one of the best new buildings in Britain by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Brighton College pupils made the news this week, as Osaid Ather (U6th, Aldrich) and William McCorkindale (L6th, Abraham) were visited and interviewed by a reporter from ITV Meridian.
Brighton College proudly carries the name of the most successful coeducational establishment in the UK. To reveal some of their memories of the late eighties and early nineties when girls were very much in the minority, Samantha Washington (nee Fox) (Fenwick 1989-93) and Tosin Ajayi (nee Akinluyi ) (Fenwick 1990-92) were invited to share their experiences: Tosin as a sixth former and Sam as a junior girl. It was a challenge at times, but one which they embraced, and they have been extremely successful in their careers and lives.
