Brighton College

Welcome from the Head of Prep School

I would like to welcome you to our website and to Brighton College Abu Dhabi Prep School. From the ages of seven to thirteen, your son or daughter will become a part of a whole-school approach to helping each individual boy and girl develop their love of learning and developing a high degree of both awareness and enthusiasm for a wide range of important aspects of life. We aim for pupils to have a level of understanding which will enable them to become well-educated, respectful and intellectually curious men and women ready to take on a full, active and positive role in the UAE and the rest of the world.                                                               

A broad, thorough and innovative academic curricular offering significant extracurricular opportunities and excellent pastoral care are trademarks of Brighton, both here in Abu Dhabi and at our sister colleges around the globe. The provision of our School House system, inspirational teaching and concentration on each individual’s progress in all areas, ensures that, with your assistance, there is the greatest chance of success for each and every child in our care.

Pupils will be busy; we want them to find out what they enjoy and where their passions lie. They will be encouraged to explore new disciplines; to give everything a try; to take risks and to know how it feels to conquer challenges. They learn to prioritise and to manage their time while maximising their own personal achievement in the classroom.

In the years to come, I would like our ex-College pupils, our alumni, to be in a position to be able to appreciate and contribute significantly to the world around them and in turn, for the world to appreciate them. These young, formative years are so important for an individual to achieve these future aims and it is important to me that our pupils enjoy their learning and are both happy and enthused. I look forward, enormously, to working with you over the years to come, as we do all we can to realise these goals.

Andrew Noakes, Head of Prep School
