Hong Kong Trust
The first pupils from Hong Kong and China joined Brighton College in the early 1970s.
Forty years on, we now teach nearly 100 pupils from Eastern Asia, and our Chinese community has contributed to the College's recent success story. We are now the leading co-educational school in England.
Ever since the school's foundation in 1845, philanthropy has always been at the very core of Brighton College's existence. Today, the generosity of our parents and alumni has allowed us to begin to significantly improve the school, helping to realise our ambitious vision for the campus. We want to create a school which provides inspiring, state-of-the-art facilities which our increasingly brilliant teachers and pupils deserve.
Our future success is largely reliant on you, and there is still more to do. Just as you or your children have benefited from the philanthropy of those parents and alumni before you, your generosity will provide for generations of pupils to come.
Making a gift to Brighton College is an excellent way to celebrate your family's association with one of the world's leading educational institutions, and there are number of naming opportunities available in our new developments, which will enable you to leave your mark at the school for generations to come.
2016 will see the establishment of the Brighton College Hong Kong Trust, a Chinese charity which we hope will promote and celebrate further giving among our parents and alumni, and also allow for tax efficient giving.
