There are a number of ways in which you can support the College. Whether it is providing mentorship to a fellow Old Brightonian, volunteering with us, or making a donation to the College, we are extremely grateful for the generous support of our alumni community.

Unlike its independent school counterparts, Brighton is not a wealthy school and cannot rely on an investment portfolio created by the founding fathers to fund capital projects. In its long history the College has relied upon philanthropic donations to fund major work. In order to maintain its beautiful Victorian buildings and provide first class modern facilities, the school has to run a 'tight ship' but also to seek the financial support of parents, former pupils, friends and generous institutions. The support of those who choose to 'give back' makes a huge difference to the College. There are many ways of giving to the college, and we are extremely grateful for any support we receive, regardless of the amount.

Due to open in April 2024, Project 175 will house a Sixth Form Centre, drama and dance studios and a new School of Computing. Most excitingly, pupils will be able to perform, sing and dance in the first ever dedicated theatre auditorium in the history of the College.

We caught up with David Gold (BCJS./Sc. 1983-91) about why he feels so passionately about giving back to Brighton College.

Peter's family has asked that donations in his memory be made to Opening Doors, our bursary scheme, supporting talented pupils from the local area.

This September the College Archive received two fantastic donations from Old Brightonians. These donations are now safely stored in the archive, awaiting cataloguing and placement within the archival collection.

We spoke to Mark Green (Al. 1973-78), a chartered patent attorney about why he has chosen to leave a legacy to the College. Mark, who after coming to Brighton on a scholarship went on to read Natural Sciences at Downing College, Cambridge, was a partner at UDL for 26 years, before retiring from full-time practice in 2020. 

We are lucky to have an incredibly diverse network of Old Brightonians around the world in every professional field. Through our Careers and Networking programme, we aim to bring OBs together to create a supportive network to enable our alumni to progress in their career of choice as well as share their vast knowledge and expertise with our College community. 

The Opening Doors Scholarship Programme offers twenty free places in our Sixth Form.

Brighton College would not exist without the generosity and vision of its founders and benefactors.
