It is people who make the College what it is today, and we are proud to share with you a few stories below of what our alumni have achieved throughout the College's 172 year history.

Art

Philip was brought up in Le Havre, France and went to English boarding school at the age of 9. He met Gordon Taylor his first mentor at Brighton College who started him on a lifelong love of architecture and painting and sculpture . He went to Cambridge University to study architecture and quickly transferred to art school graduating from Chelsea School of Art.

John Hart is one of the most respected members of the London Wasps squad and so it comes as no surprise that he was named as Wasps' captain for the start of the 2007/08 season throughout the World Cup period.
