20 free places for Sixth Form

Opening Doors to your future

Since September 2020, Brighton College has offered 20 free 16+ places in our Opening Doors scholarship programme.

This initiative makes Sixth Form places at Brighton College, one of the world’s leading schools, available to talented and ambitious young people from the local area.

At Brighton College, we want every young person to have the chance to pursue their academic interests, their passions and their future hopes within a supportive and stimulating environment.

With fully-funded Sixth Form scholarships, we hope to attract local pupils for whom our pastoral care and academic rigor will offer a life-changing opportunity. This may include:

  • Pupils who are eligible for free school meals;
  • Pupils in care or who have been in care;
  • Pupils who would be the first in their families to attend university;
  • Pupils who have experienced a significant disadvantage, or who have been displaced, such as a refugee.


With outstanding academic opportunities, an amazing range of activities and sport on offer and continual support in developing practical life skills, the Opening Doors programme will allow pupils to enjoy studying their chosen subjects, to access a place at a leading university, and begin preparing for their future career.
