Our guiding philosophy
To support and challenge each boy to become the best version of himself.
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’.

Meliora Sequamur (Let us pursue better things)
Brighton Grammar has retired the use of the tagline we teach boys.
Rather than having one tagline, we have several current campaign or positioning lines in use. Examples include:
- Transforming the way to teach boys
- Enabling/inspiring/supporting boys to be the best version of themselves
- Understanding boys. Creating good men.
- Nobody knows boys like Brighton Grammar.
