Brighton College’s Richard Cairns wins the Tatler Prize for Best Head

A TEACHER in the county battled stiff competition to be named Britain’s Best – becoming the first in history to win the award twice.

Brighton College’s Richard Cairns has been announced as the winner of Tatler’s Best Public Head Award.

He first won the award in 2012 and is the only person to claim the award more than once.

Steve Marshall-Taylor, Second Master at Brighton College said: “This is a remarkable achievement and a well deserved recognition of all he does and has done to ensure every pupil in the Brighton College family a truly first class education. ”

The college said Richard won the award for his community partnerships, “particularly the school’s work with local refugee groups.”

Richard created a weekly support room for people fleeing Syria in 2015, which led to the college’s Opening Doors program, which offers 20 free scholarships to “talented local young people who have faced adversity.”

Eastbourne College was also a winner of the awards, receiving the award for Best Eco Warrior School.

Brighton College and Eastbourne College are both private schools.

It was selected for “going green” and “promoting environmentally friendly initiatives”.

Brighton College, which regularly ranks in the top 10 in exams, offered free high school places to 18 children fleeing the war in Ukraine.

Many of the refugee students live with families who already have children at the school.

The scholarship includes a free school uniform, all excursions, equipment, activities and clubs.

Social events have been organized for families to meet, English classes have been offered by current Brighton College students and many have already attended a Premier League football match in Brighton.

Given that the children were fleeing the war, the school set up various types of professional support, including counseling, play therapy and art therapy.

The school has a long history of helping children fleeing the horrors of war.

Former students Sulaiman Wihba and Elias Badin said they were “incredibly lucky” to win scholarships at the school when they fled the war in Syria five years ago.
