“When I ask our sixth graders what is the best thing about our school, they invariably say ‘Teaching’. It’s no wonder their exam scores have been so impressive and they’re inspired to grow in so many ways beyond the classroom. Mike Walton, Head Master
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I study A Levels rather than the IB Diploma?
In short, A levels offer a much higher degree of flexibility and tailor a program that plays to the strengths of the student. The A Level system offers students who are best prepared for a wide variety of single-specialization college courses, and the admissions departments of top universities around the world understand the A Level system very well. The A Level system offers everything you will find at the IB, but no subject is “forced” on the student.

Our PSHE program includes career counseling, external speakers, and preparation for life after school. A dedicated college guidance teacher is available to support students and parents through the application process.
What else can I do in sixth form at Brighton College Bangkok?
There are plenty of opportunities for students to gain insight outside of academic classes. Sixth form students are given leadership positions throughout the College, and leadership and service opportunities are available. Stimulating college clubs, extracurricular opportunities and the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award can all be used to hone current talent and develop new ones.
