Types of school

We have four types of primary schools in the city:

  • community schools, which are controlled by Brighton & Hove City Council
  • church voluntary aided schools, which follow the national curriculum, but they can choose what they teach in religious studies
  • free schools, which are funded by the government, but not run by the council
  • academies, which are run by a governing body that is independent from the council and can follow a different curriculum

Read about different types of schools on the GOV.UK website.
