It is my pleasure to extend to you a very warm welcome to Brighton College Abu Dhabi. As you will see from this website, ours is a leading school in the Middle East, with a formidable record of academic excellence, coupled with outstanding pastoral care. As a sister school of Brighton College, the UK’s top co-educational school, we offer our pupils an outstanding, all-through education from 3 – 18. While each has its own individual character, our Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior Schools occupy the same site and enjoy the same excellent facilities.

We believe strongly that all pupils can fulfil their potential when their efforts are valued, shared and celebrated. One of our key aims is to foster intellectual curiosity, promote confident debate and involve pupils in a wide variety of co-curricular activities so that they become rounded and kind human beings who can make a real contribution to society once they leave. We strongly endorse the best traditions of British independent school education and links with Brighton College UK and the other schools in the Brighton family are strong.

Our community is underpinned by a profound belief in the values you will see throughout this website. A real sense of what we do and how vibrant and energetic an organisation this is will be gained if you are able to visit us, of course. When you do, I shall look forward to meeting you in person.
