Brighton College

Brighton College


The College is inspected by two accredited bodies - the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) and the UK-based Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). Below is an excerpt taken from the College's last ADEK inspection:

"The overall performance of the school is very good. It is a popular and successful international school. Around half of the children enrolling at foundation stage (FS) do not speak English as a first language. By the end of FS, considering the diversity of their linguistic backgrounds, children’s spoken English skills are outstanding. The school has high expectations which pervade every aspect of its life. Students’ achievement in Arabic subjects ranges from acceptable to good, and in English subjects is mostly outstanding. External examinations in Years 11, 12 and 13 are well above curriculum and world averages in almost all cases. The quality of teaching is very good overall and outstanding in a large minority of lessons. Students are eager to learn, enthusiastic and their behaviour is exemplary. The school’s approach to broadening learning through its co-curricular programme is an example of international best practice and students thrive on it as a result. This is all being achieved because of the commitment of the headmaster and his senior and middle leaders to continuous school improvement and innovation."
