Brighton College, in partnership with leading global schools group Cognita, is delighted to announce the plan to open a new international school in Singapore in September 2020, subject to relevant regulatory approvals.
Brighton College (Singapore), for children aged 18 months to 11 years, will draw upon the strengths of its parent school in the UK. The partnership involves Brighton College leading the educational philosophy, school ethos and curricula, while Cognita will lead the day-to-day operation of the new international school, with governance by a joint board.
Brighton College (Singapore) will be led by Paul Wilson, who joins from Brighton College in the UK where he has spent the last eight years and currently leads academic, co-curricular and pastoral areas for the College.
Commenting on his appointment, Paul says: “My family and I are delighted to be moving to Singapore: establishing a school in such a dynamic and successful country is a very exciting opportunity. My vision for Brighton College Singapore is for an outward-looking school that prioritises emotional wellbeing and fosters a lifelong 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. It is a privilege to put these fundamentals in place, enabling pupils to take full advantage of the next stage of their education.”
