Old Brightonians, including previous members of the Common Room and other ex-Brighton College staff, pupils, masters and parents came together for a moving Remembrance Service on Sunday 13th November.
Even before the final bars of the first night performance had been played by the quite magnificent 34 piece orchestra, which had been carefully assembled by Mr Carter and inspirationally led by our brilliant Musical Director Mr Chenery, the audience had started to applaud and cheer in response to a production overflowing with talent and exuberant energy.
We are delighted to announce that planning permission was granted last week for the Diamond Jubilee Pavilion to be built on the New Ground in East Brighton Park. The one-storey building will have large changing rooms, a stunning café-bar overlooking the New Ground and an impressive entrance foyer, providing a warm and welcoming environment for pupils, staff and spectators. Other groups are also set to benefit as the new facilities will also be made available to other sporting groups from around the community.
Brighton College has seen many generations of families pass through the gates, and following the generous endowment from the Association of Old Brightonians in 2010 we are delighted to announce that the OBA bursary has been awarded to a Sixth Former for the academic years 2011-12 through to 2012-13. The OBA Bursary is awarded to descendants of former pupils of the college.
Thursday night saw the Graduation Service and Ceremony for Brighton College Upper Sixth Leavers – the formal event to mark their departure from the College, in advance of the informal festivities of the Leavers’ Ball at the Hilton Metropole on Friday evening. Family, friends and staff crowded into the Chapel to celebrate the achievements of each and every member of the Upper Sixth, punctuated with some humorous and engaging reminiscence, provided by Theo Bunce and Emma Langmead.
