At Varndean we pride ourselves on our inclusive and harmonious environment, where every student is given the opportunities and support they need to fulfil their potential. Our aim here at Varndean College is to develop students into well-rounded, confident and free thinking individuals who are aspirational and ready to move on to the next stage of their lives.

Located in the green outskirts of Brighton, we offer 16 to 19 year-old daytime students a wide range of academic and vocational courses, as well as being the only state-funded college in the area to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Varndean was one of the best times of my life. Without the support and inspiration the teachers gave, I would not be where I am today. Thank you Varndean for opening me to education and career opportunities I never knew were possible.
