Brighton College plans to open a nursery and primary school for students aged 18 months through to 11 years in Singapore in September 2020.

Brighton College, which is one of the UK’s top independent schools (pictured), plans to partner with leading global schools’ group Cognita to open Brighton College (Singapore) next year.

This new nursery and primary school for students aged 18 months through to 11 years will open in Singapore in August 2020.

Brighton College will lead the educational philosophy, school ethos and UK curriculum of the new school, which will replicate the authentic Brighton College experience from the academic rigour of its British curriculum through to the traditional house system. Cognita, which operates more than 70 schools across eight countries – including Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, and the UK – will manage the day-to-day operation of the campus.

Singapore will become the fifth international campus for Brighton College, which has one school in Thailand (Bangkok), and three in the UAE (Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al Ain). Cognita already has two schools in Singapore – Stamford American International School (SAIS) and Australian International School (AIS) – but this will be its first British school here. In 2017, it opened the Early Learning Village, which claims to be the world’s largest pre-school, on a campus that is shared between AIS and SAIS.

Brighton College (Singapore) is expected to follow the same curriculum as all other Brighton College campuses, which teach the English National Curriculum throughout all year groups. It has a global reputation for its strong culture of excellence as a selective school with a demanding curriculum and very academic environment. As we’ve seen in the UK and the UAE, though, the Brighton College brand isn’t just about academic performance. A house system, a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, and a strong emphasis on wellbeing are all part of its DNA.

We’ve seen the Brighton College model work well internationally. Brighton College Abu Dhabi is a WhichSchoolAdvisor.com Top School, and it has been rated Very Good by the Abu Dhabi Education Council; its sister school in Al Ain is rated Outstanding. 

The founding principal for Brighton College (Singapore) will be Paul Wilson, who joins the school from Brighton College in the UK, where he has spent the last eight years. Wilson said:

“My vision for Brighton College in Singapore is for a forward-looking school that prioritises emotional well-being and fosters a life-long love of learning: a school where pupils look to the needs of their classmates, but are also engaged with their local community and are aware of global issues; a school where pupils are resilient, confident and grateful for their opportunities; and a school where teachers stoke the children’s natural curiosity, fuelling their desire to investigate and understand the world around them.

Brighton College (Singapore) is registered with the Committee for Private Education (CPE), which regulates Singapore's private education sector. However it is not currently EduTrust certified, and as such is unable to accept applications from families who require a Student Pass for their child. 

If you are the owner or the principal of the school and note any inaccuracies, or would like to update data, you can now open an account with us. You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service. Please help us keep prospective parents up to date with your latest information.
