Our guiding philosophy

To support and challenge each boy to become the best version of himself. (be the best he can be)

Who is Brighton Grammar?

A school that understands boys.

When boys feel that they belong, they feel safe to speak with integrity, listen empathetically, connect with others respectfully and empowered to be the best version of themselves.

While the fundamentals of education are the same for either gender, boys thrive in a culture that understands, accepts and celebrates the masculine without conforming to stereotypes about what it means to ‘be a man’.
