CCAs and Electives
Brighton College prides itself on the breadth of education it provides. Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) are one example of this breadth. At Brighton College, we are keen to ensure that we know all of our pupils as individuals and that through this we can help them to find their talents and passions. By offering a wide range of activities we hope to provide all pupils with exciting and stimulating experiences which enhance their learning within the classroom. We hope that your child will find a number of activities such as Tie-Dye, Touch Rugby, Knitting, Choir, Forest School, Science Investigations, which excite them whatever their interests may be.
In the Junior School, CCAs run during the school day. All pupils in Years 1-5 will partake in two activities a week. The Co-Curricular Programme is modified every six weeks to allow for a wide range of activities to be covered over the course of the year and to take account of the seasonal weather conditions.
In the Senior School, Electives also run during the school day, twice weekly. Pupils have the opportunity to take part in programmes such as Debating, Advanced Latin, Duke of Edinburgh's International Award, Chess Leagues, Science club, Eco School, Musical Theatre and Performing Arts Awards. Electives are regularly reviewed and renewed to ensure options reflect the diverse skills, interests and enthusiasms of our community, and ensure that pupils enjoy a well-rounded educational experience from which they can draw influence and inspiration long after they have left us.
In our experience, pupils who are the busiest and most engaged in their school lives, and approach co-curricular activities with the same energy as their academic work, are much more likely to be accepted into top quality universities.
