At OIC Brighton, we encourage our students from Year 9 to expand their learning beyond the classroom, through entering competitions or joining clubs, and through volunteering and internships as they move into sixth form. These enriching experiences help them to develop into well-rounded young people, ready for success at university and beyond.
Following the successful OIC model with younger students means that our passionate teachers and Supercurricular department will have even more time to guide you and nurture your talents, based on your university aspirations. This pedagogical approach is specifically designed to ensure that you leave our college with everything you need to take on the challenge of university and beyond.
In contrast to the bustling city centre location of OIC Oxford, our vision for Brighton is a vision for a busy, engaged community of students from age 13 all the way through to Sixth Form, based on one beautiful, spacious and modern campus; studying and living together with the same aims and values. With vast amounts of green space, sports facilities and peaceful study spots, the campus provides the ideal setting for you to grow your talents and pursue a very successful academic career.
As the architect of the curriculum design at OIC Oxford, I continue to follow our students’ post-OIC journeys with immense pride and joy. Our goal is to build the foundation of a successful career and fulfilling life by mapping out a personalised journey for every student, whilst providing them with all the support they need: academic, career-related, and pastoral.
I am delighted to see my academic vision and strategy being implemented at the new campus in Brighton. I hope that your time here will be a start of a uniquely fulfilling and rewarding period of your life.
Yasmin Sarwar, Chief Education Officer
Our Founding Principal will bring the ethos and approach that Yasmin and the team have created at OIC Oxford to our new school in Brighton. In this magnificent setting by the sea students from the age of 13 will benefit from the excellent teaching and fantastic modern facilities and all the features of approach at Oxford such as the small classes, expert teaching and a focus on Strategic Global Pathways (page 8). Our students will leave with the skills, qualifications, confidence and resilience that enables them to thrive in their future studies and careers.
I am very much looking forward to working with the Founding Principal and Yasmin to bring this vision to life.
Andrew Gillespie, Executive Principal
