    Simon Corns, Head Master of Brighton College Abu Dhabi said, “Once again, I am absolutely delighted with our pupils’ outstanding GCSEs. Year on year they consistently produce spectacular results and we celebrate their success. I am particularly pleased to see that our Value-Added score shows that on average pupils have achieved +1.5, so a grade and a half above expectations (+1.4 last year); +1.72 in STEM subjects alone. The impact of fantastic teaching and learning is clear for all to see. My thanks go to all the teachers, pupils and their parents for the wonderful teamwork that has led to this achievement. Pupils have done this alongside raising over 15,000 AED for charity, helping at the special Olympics, and participating in a breath-taking range of co-curricular activities at Brighton College Abu Dhabi.”

    Emma Parsons, Head of Years 7 – 11 said, “We are delighted that once again our pupils’ results have exceeded our expectations and we are celebrating their achievements today. The fact that almost half of all GCSE grades scored either 9 or 8 demonstrates that the pupils hard work and determination has paid dividends. We are incredibly proud of all our pupils and the commitment and the dedication of our teaching staff is outstanding. Well done all!”
