The partnership between Kingsford Community School, a Specialist Language College in East London which has no Sixth Form, and Brighton College, was announced in March 2007. Three students began their studies at Brighton in September 2007 and 3 further places have been announced for entry in September 2008. Successful applicants become full members of the Brighton College Sixth Form and are expected to fully imerse themselves in the life of the College as well as working hard to achieve the best possible examination results. Students are selected after a rigorous process of written application, reports and interviews. Places are offered subject to GCSE grades. Brighton College seeks to expand the scheme to benefit other talented, bright youngsters at Kingsford Community School and in the city of Brighton & Hove.
