Brighton Girls

Brighton Girls couldn’t be anywhere other than at the heart of vibrant, open, forward-facing Brighton. We’re a dynamic, creative, friendly school where girls are confident, passionate and kind – not only ambitious for themselves, but for society.

As a founder of the Girls’ Day School Trust, we’ve championed girls’ education since it was in its infancy. We understand what makes girls tick and how to help them become all they can be. We do this by focusing on the joy of learning and on instilling curiosity, adventure and independence. All in a girls-only environment that’s reassuring yet always stimulating, giving students the confidence and motivation to shine.

We also have a strong sense of community and collective endeavour. Teachers are passionate about their subjects and draw the best from girls, as shown in our results. We combine this with sport, academic enrichment and other extra-curricular activities to develop knowledge, interests, emotional intelligence and teamwork.

Talk to any one of our girls and you discover someone happy and positive. Someone who feels they belong and is able to succeed at whatever they decide to be.

In other words, Brighton Girls.

Bursaries & Scholarships

The Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) offers talented and deserving girls scholarships and bursaries at 11+ and 16+ entry. They particularly focus on girls for who would find a GDST education truly life-changing.

Both the Girls’ Day School Trust and Brighton Girls were founded by philanthropists committed to making outstanding education available to young women – a legacy we are proud to continue today. We believe every girl who is bright and eager to learn should be given the opportunity to fulfil her potential regardless of financial circumstances.

We therefore offer a limited number of bursaries to assist girls joining us in Year 7 and Year 12. These means-tested bursaries are called Brighton Awards, and it is essential that families who may wish to explore financial support options contact our Admissions Department well in advance of the proposed date of admission, so that they have the greatest chance of being considered for the limited funds available.

A small number of academic scholarships each year will be awarded to girls who perform very highly in the Entrance Examination taken in January of Year 6. There is no need to apply for these separately.

A small number of Temple Scholarships are also awarded to candidates who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school. We are looking for girls who will inspire their peers and act as ambassadors both for Brighton Girls and the Girls Day School Trust.

Areas for particular consideration are music, sport, drama, dance, art or any other activity to which the candidate brings a special enthusiasm or interest. Girls may apply for up to three areas for consideration. Candidates will be initially assessed on the basis of a completed Temple Scholarship application form alongside their performance in the Entrance Assessment.
