Brighton Expands their school in Singapore
Starting from August 2025, Brighton College (Singapore) will extend its curriculum and course offerings to pupils aged up to 13 years.

Brighton College (Singapore) continues to develop for the benefit of the international community – the school will offer its British National curriculum while focusing on the development of the whole child so as to set them up for future success.
