YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Our boarding houses – Ainsworth House (Years 9-11) and Turing House (Years 12-13) – are warm, welcoming spaces that offer both personal privacy and a strong feeling of community.


In bright, modern common areas, you’ll spend time with friends, play games, watch movies, and work on shared projects. Our comfortable bedrooms provide a calming environment where you can study, revise, and relax.

A COUNTRYSIDE CAMPUS CLOSE TO THE CITY

Nestled away in the idyllic English countryside – and only minutes from the city, coast, and international transport links – our stunning campus really is ideally located.


Our state-of-the-art teaching buildings and secure boarding houses are surrounded by more than 23 acres of woodland, rolling fields, and open green spaces. These offer unparalleled outdoor opportunities, whether it’s studying in the fresh air, going for a walk or bike ride, or simply hanging out with friends.


The college is just a stone’s throw away from everything the cosmopolitan city of Brighton has to offer, too. For those who love water sports, there are plenty of local clubs to join, plus a marina and beaches down the road. We’re also close to the South Downs designated area of natural beauty, and easily accessible to London.
