The former head of Brighton College has been given a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Anthony Seldon ran Brighton College from September 1997 until he joined Wellington College, another public school, in Berkshire, in January 2006.

He has written biographies of John Major, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and, while he was at Brighton College, he wrote Brave New City: Brighton and Hove Past, Present, Future.

He described it as an analysis of the city of Brighton and Hove focused principally on its buildings.

Dr Seldon, 60, a governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company, was knighted for services to education and modern political history.
