The Brighton Story – There is Always Room at the Top
Brighton is derived from two words Bright and Nation; amalgamation of these two reflects the vision behind Brighton. The school started with its humble beginning in 2010 in Raipur and due its modern pedagogy, systematic lesson planning, thought trough curriculum and procedures, Brighton International School is today one a known names in the country. Other than its state of the art infrastructure, school has made a mark through its modern approach and outlook. Brighton finds its origin when I was closely observing the children’s space as the programming director for an upcoming TV channel, and realised so much can be done in this space for creating the cities of tomorrow. Brighton International School is a school with its roots in the wisdom of past, imbibing education with technology of tomorrow still meeting the educational needs of today was the need of the hour. Brighton aims to be that place of learning, with its concerns firmly grounded in the interest of its students / parents and goodwill of its teachers. The DNA of Brighton is an idea under work in progress, which believes in improving every day of its life.
What Sets Brighton Apart

Build a School – Brighton International School, an idea whose time has come
The Business of Education today needs a lot of teaching to get into. Not only should one be Visionary but also an immaculate planner and meticulous executioner.School as an establishment is a very capital-intensive investment; the break even can take as long as 8 – 10 years. Once established well in the initial years, the institution can create value beyond imagination where a promoter can earn a name socially and financially. Brighton International School with its expertise in academics and sound knowledge of how an educational institution should operate can do wonders to a new Greenfield project.
Brighton International School shall help you provide the Curriculum, the Brand, Marketing Support, School Operating Procedures and complete handholding consultancy to run the school from inception, admission to affiliation.

Each and every Lesson plan is well though through and is aligned to the basic requirement of the subject and the topic thus doing complete justice. This is what Brighton International School, the brand will be known for in times to come. More can be found out from www.brightoninternational.in
The Brighton Deliverables & Pre condition to start a Brighton’s Franchise

In metropolitan cities with a population exceeding 25 Lakhs, the land should not be less than 1 acre with adequate building and there must be an arrangement with other institution/organization for imparting physical & health education and conducting games in their grounds.
The minimum land area required for the schools in NCR, Delhi is 4000 sq. mts.
In hilly areas, the land should not be less than one acre. The norms as prescribed by the Planning Commission shall be applicable for determining the eligibility in hilly areas.
In all other places, the school must possess at least about two acres of land and a building constructed on a part of the land and proper playgrounds on the remaining land. In case of lease, it will be acceptable only if it is for a minimum of 30 years and in favour of the Society/School by registered deed.
Land Area for Residential School
The school must possess about 10 acres of land. This type of school will have the CBSE system and may/may not offer the IB (International Baccalaureate) system.
Apart from the land, you need to invest on the construction, the cost of which may be from Rs 600 per sqft onwards (Including furniture and interiors), depending on the fee that is being targeted in your school. You should also be able to secure bank funding for a majority of this Fee structure, fee billing forms and procedures. amount. Banks may also give a one-year moratorium, which will help you settle down the school. Within a year, you will be able to reach a stage where you can start paying the bank installments, from the money you get from fee collection.
