    Celebrations post A Level success continue

    Brighton College has further reason to celebrate following the confirmation of the university destinations of its leavers.

    This follows on from its city-leading A Level success, which included some exceptional achievements by many of this first ever cohort of A-Level pupils.

    The name Brighton College is synonymous with outstanding academic achievement, and these latest results by its first international school reflect the high standard set by its UK cousin. With 40% of grades at A* to A, 72% of grades at A* to B and 20% of the year group achieving 3 A grades or above, Brighton College Abu Dhabi can claim to be both the leading start-up in recent years and the top of all British Schools in the Emirate.

    Of particular note were the achievements of Isabel Wood (A*AA - Medicine, Bristol), Katya Westerman (A*A*A*A*AB - Biochemistry, Imperial), Elena Smith (A*AAB - Nottingham, Physics), Ineke Lavers (A*AA - Liberal Arts and Science, Utretch) and Aaswath Balasubramanian (A*A*ABB - Engineering, Imperial) who all achieved at least 3 A grades or A* each.

    Alun Yorath, Head Master, said: “I am delighted to see so many pupils going to study at some of the most prestigious universities in the world. They should be very proud of what they have achieved during their time at Brighton College Abu Dhabi. We are most certainly very proud to have them as our first cohort of school leavers. They also set an excellent example of what can be achieved to those that follow after them”.

    “The excellent results also stand testament to the breadth of talent amongst our pupils: all abilities and backgrounds have achieved highly this year. They have gone beyond all benchmarked expectations from baseline tests and their GCSE results. Not only is this indicative of their academic maturity and endeavour, but also the hard work from the outstanding teaching staff at Brighton College Abu Dhabi whose belief and high expectations have guided and supported them in their studies.

    “Our aim now is to build on these strengths by continuing to help all our pupils realise their potential. We aim to instil a passion for academic study and life-long learning in our pupils. Passion leads to a desire for learning and desire to learn leads to high achievement. The inauguration of our new Athena Academic Enrichment programme will formalise our provision for the breadth of academic talent we have at the College and in doing so, continue to encourage the academic, physical and creative ambition that marks our pupils out as extraordinary. I wish our leavers every success as they embark upon the next stage of their lives.”
