Boarding at Handcross Park

Brighton College offers boarding from age 13 upwards. If you would like the option of boarding before this entry point, our beautiful award-winning prep school at Handcross Park, just north of Brighton, would be delighted to hear from you.

Handcross Park offers boarding from ages 8-12. Many families looking for boarding from an earlier age choose Handcross Park, who follow the Brighton College curriculum, and then apply to send their children to Brighton at 13.


Boarding at Handcross Park offers a wonderful preparation for boarding at Brighton College.”

Life at Handcross Park

Boarding life

Handcross Park has a lively boarding community and there is a full and exciting range of activities at weekends for full boarders.

Weekly boarding is also available, meaning children can spend four nights at school and three nights at home. There is a bus service to and from London which collects children on a Monday morning and returns home on a Friday afternoon.
