What will pupils gain from attending Brighton College Vietnam?

At Brighton College Vietnam, pupils will be nurtured according to the core values ingrained in the Brighton College DNA for almost 200 years: Kindness, Confidence, and Curiosity.

With these three values, Brighton College Vietnam is the ideal environment to fulfil parents’ hopes and dreams for future generations, helping to raise pupils into kind, confident young people who can learn and adapt to our ever-changing world.

Kindness at Brighton College Vietnam shines through our pupils’ acceptance and respect of individual differences. This guiding philosophy permeates all of the school’s activities: “To help each pupil become the best version of themselves.”

This educational mission will help each child become a first-class version of himself or herself, not a second-class copy of someone else. This will also help our pupils flourish and lead happy and meaningful lives.

Confidence is another value that Brighton’s world-class educational model strives to cultivate in pupils, allowing them to bravely express their opinions and steadfastly pursue their dreams.

Inquisitiveness and love of learning are fostered at Brighton College Vietnam through our preservation and encouragement of each child’s innate curiosity. This is the key to transforming education and helps pupils become life-long learners and develop deep critical thinking skills.

With almost 200 years of success in the UK and generations of exceptional old Brightonians, many of whom have made their mark in industry, science and the arts, such as Chloe Zhao, Oscar-winning director, and John Alfred Ryle, Regius Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge, some might believe that Brighton College Vietnam is a school only for the elite. However, Matthew Bartlett – the founding head master of Brighton College Vietnam, said that elite concepts that Brighton College Vietnam fosters are not based on privilege, but rather that: “We build our school on kindness, magnanimity, curiosity, talent, virtue, and contributions to society.”
