Brighton College

TG Jackson designed an ornate Tudor style entrance tower to Brighton College in 1887, but it was left unbuilt.

130 years later, we have finally completed the tower, in terracotta on a brick core, to serve as the Headmaster’s study and meeting room. The steel frame of the cupola and pinnacle was erected at ground level, then hoisted onto the tower by crane.

The tower has already become the symbolic image for the school.
