During the current period of restrictions owing to COVID-19, there are age-appropriate adjustments to the details below, which the admissions office is happy to discuss. Playdates and Assessments, for instance are not permitted at the moment.


Admissions Process

Thank you for applying to Brighton College, Abu Dhabi. Brighton College is an academically selective school and requires all pupils to complete a playdate (Pre-Prep School) or formal assessment (Prep and Senior School). Only pupils applying to our Sixth Form will be required to complete a formal interview. Due to the high volume of applications we receive we are now operating waiting lists for the majority of our year groups. We recommend that you call the admissions team to check what spaces are available before submitting an application.

We understand that choosing a school can sometimes be a daunting task and the process may differ from your home country or from the current school within the UAE that your son or daughter is enrolled in. Please be assured that our Admissions team will be happy to guide you through the process. Should you have any questions please contact our Admissions team by calling +971 (0) 2 815 6504 or emailing  admissions@brightoncollege.ae.
