    At Brighton College Dubai, we strongly endorse the very best traditions of a British independent school education. To us that means excellence in academia with an exciting range of co-curricular opportunities, underpinned by a deeply embedded culture of kindness and inclusivity. At our school, every pupil is valued for the person they are and encouraged to develop their talents to the full, in a community where there are no stereotypes and where every achievement, however small, is noticed.
