Simon Corns, Head Master of Brighton College Abu Dhabi commented, “This year’s GCSE results at Brighton College Abu Dhabi are outstanding, and after nearly two years of really difficult circumstances, our pupils thoroughly deserve them. GCSEs form the basis of further study and a good number of our pupils will be staying on to choose from the twenty-four subjects on offer at our outstanding Sixth Form, ensuring they have the best chances of following previous year groups who have gone on to top universities around the world. I pay warm tribute to our wonderful pupils and to their outstanding teachers who, together have secured these fantastic results.”
