From The Sunday Times: Peony Grainger's A-level history grade was raised from a U to an A after Brighton College appealed to the OCR examination board.
Head of School in 1954, David Nelson-Smith graduated from Brighton College almost sixty years ago but his connection with the College has continued right up to today. Always a keen supporter of the College as well as being in the role of Governor for sixteen years, David is now organising a sixty year reunion for the leavers of 1955 to celebrate this momentous anniversary. We caught up with him to see just what has transpired in those intervening years.
A terrific headline in "The Week" this month - we're delighted & proud to be named the "Most Forward Thinking School in Britain".
As the Music School progresses, so the vision of a new Music School for the College is finally coming into focus. 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.
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.
