To provide a visible memorial to the 149 Old Brightonians who died during the First World War, Brighton College has commissioned a new bronze statue to stand by the north entrance of the school’s chapel.
The memorial offers pupils and staff a place for quiet contemplation, and is a daily reminder of the boys and men of Brighton College, who gave up their lives in this conflict.
The school worked with Philip Jackson on the commission – a renowned sculptor with an outstanding international reputation. His design was based on pre-war photographs held in the Brighton College Archive. The school boater, lying by the boy’s feet, is also significant, having been re-introduced as part of the College’s commemorations.
