In other words, Brighton College has received a simply outstanding inspection report.

The Head Master was delighted: "I have no idea whether it is unprecedented for a school to receive 'excellent' ratings in every single category but I am certain that it is extremely rare. I am obviously thrilled and am particularly delighted that the hard work and cheerful enthusiasm of my wonderful staff and the equally brilliant young people in our care have been recognised in this way. It is a genuine cause for celebration for all those connected with Brighton College."
